Heartwood Tea, a Traditional Drink for Body Warmer

Heartwood Tea a Traditional Drink for Body WarmerHeartwood tea! Well ... this kind of drink is not actually relatively new. Hindu community in Bali used to consume it since antiquity. In rainy season, this red tea is commonly taken to warm the body. Similarly, the heartwood (cang) tea is also served in the mutual assistance as a welcome drink. Farmers who were unwinding after cultivating their land also used to drink heartwood tea to pump endurance. Normally the presentation was accompanied with cassava cake. Moreover, those who did not drink coffee definitely chose this drink to quench their thirst.

Heartwood tea is also commonly given to children. Moreover, it is also good for those whose body condition decreased. However, along with the development of time the tea made of wood is increasingly marginalized. People tend to choose instant tea or beverages. In the Denpasar Festival (Denfest) 2012, the heartwood tea was named one of the menus and introduced to general public. In the presentation, it was combined with ginger and lemongrass so it tasted steadier. Indeed, young generation looks indifferent to this drink. Different from the elderly, most of them choose for reminiscing their childhood.

At that time, the heartwood tea indeed came up without companion. However, based on the idea of Mayor IB Rai Dharmawijaya Mantra, the heartwood tea was coupled with herbal drinks in the following Denfest. Even, Mayor Rai Mantra asserted to make the heartwood tea a welcome drink for guest reception. This traditional beverage is without the use of dyes because it utilizes original ingredient of heartwood. It belongs to scarce species of tree and can widely be found in many areas of Karangasem and Bangli County. Ordinary people commonly purchase it in traditional markets.

How to prepare it? First of all, prepare the water in saucepan. Then, put the heartwood and boil for about 15 minutes. Alternatively, prepare warm water in advance. After that, put the heartwood into the water. However, to get a better efficacy it will be better if the heartwood and water are boiled simultaneously. To get a better flavor, it can be added with ginger and lemongrass. After the boiling, remove the heartwood and filter it so that the heartwood will not come up with the dregs of heartwood and ginger in the drink. Do not forget to add sugar (to taste). After getting cooler, it can be serve and ready to drink. (BTN/015)
