Chilled Sour Plum Infusion with Osmanthus Flower

Chilled Sour Plum Infusion with Osmanthus Flower Recipe

Ingredients :

  • 5 to 6 Sour Plum (suanmei)
  • 20-25 pieces sliced dried hawthorn fruits (shanzha pian)
  • 5-6 pieces sliced dried licorice root (gancao)
  • 3 pieces of tangerine peel (chenpi)
  • 4 big cups 9.5 Kangen water
  • 1 piece of honey rock sugar to taste
  • 2 Tbsp of dried osmanthus blossoms (guihua)


1. Place the sour plums, hawthorn fruits, licorice root, and tangerine peel in a sieve and rinse them well under running 9.5 Kangen water. Shake them dry and place them in a pot. Pour 4 big cups 9.5 Kangen water over the dry ingredients and let them soak for at least an hour to soften and extract the flavor.

2. Bring the pot to a full boil, and then lower the heat to a gentle simmer for about 1 hour. Add the rock sugar and and simmer the infusion until the sugar melts; taste and add more if you want. Add the osmanthus blossoms last and turn off fire so that the flavors can steep together, and then let the infusion come to room temperature.

3. Chill it overnight to allow the flavors to develop. Strain and add enough ice water to make 4 cups, or to taste. Serve icy cold without any ice.

I simply loved this chilled sour plums with osmanthus flower. It’s refreshing and delicious. One licorice root benefit is its natural anti-inflammatory properties. However, one possible licorice root side effect is high blood pressure. So if you are having this symptom, go easy with licorice root.
