Jujube Tea

Jujube, also known as the Chinese date, are one of my favorite fruits for making a delicious tea.  I absolutely love jujube’s!  Packed with vitamins and nutrients jujube’s are beneficial to your health in many ways.  Listed below are some of its many benefits.   


  • Stress / Anxiety  reliever
  • Digestive and Cleansing aid
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Loaded with 18 important amino acids
  • Great source of energy
  • Loaded with magnesium, potassium, copper, niacin, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, and iron
  • Used for treating coughs, cold, and the flu

Just to name a few!

For my tea I chopped 6 dried jujubes, brought them to a boil in about 2-2.5 cups water, and let them simmer.   It can be boiled with ginger and cinnamon, although today I was out of both :p  Once you’ve enjoyed your tea you can boil the jujubes in another batch of water for a second serving.

My Handsome Lion built me a desk.  I love it and it is such a great space saver.  Many thanks to my love.


Chill Out

Seals do this thing called thermoregulation.  If they’re too hot or cold they stick their flippers out to cool down or warm up.  It’s adorable to watch and this little guy let us get close to snap a shot.  We were able to fit in some yoga on the SUP too.
