Dried Pandan Tea Leaves

Updated: Aug 27, 2023


I have some leftover pandan leaves on hand and thought I shared with you lovely people what I usually do with them. After washing them thoroughly, I would air-dry them before baking them in the oven. Followed by blitzing them into powder. They can be kept for a long time in a sterilized jar, preferably in the freezer.



I thought I make some tea outta them and at the same time, showing off my new drip pot. Lol! If you have been following me, you would know that I posted a pandan tea recipe a few months back. I honestly think that this version is better. You have to be the judge of that. Cheers!


PS: This is not a miracle tea. Please consult a doctor.


 

Ingredients:

(Serve 2)

  • Pandan Leaves, A Large Handful

  2. Lay the pandan leaves on a baking tray.

  3. Air dry for 1 day.

  4. Preheat oven to 65 degrees celsius or 150 fahrenheit.

  7. Store in a sterilized jar.

  8. I like to keep them in the freezer for a prolonged period of time.
