Quarter the Asian Pear (1) and remove the seeds.
Slice Fresh Ginger (3 inch) thinly. I don't bother to peel the ginger since I cleaned it well.
Slice each Dried Red Dates (25) into 3 sections. The center piece will have the seed. If you are not the slicing type, you can skip this slicing and use them whole.
Put everything in a pot with Water (3 quart) and add the Cinnamon Stick (3). Bring it to boil first, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for at least 1 hour, covered.
You will get this gorgeous amber colored liquid. Strain the juice and discard everything else. Sweeten with Honey (to taste) when you serve as a tea.
As for a cold punch, sweeten with honey or sugar first, then chill in the fridge until ready to use. Mix with Ginger Ale (1.5 liter) and sprinkle with some Pine Nuts (2 tablespoon) to garnish.
