The small grains are crystals formed from sugar syrup. Because the sieve holes are larger than the crystals, these fine grains can still pass through the sieve into the product. When cooking, use hot water between 75 to 100 degrees Celsius, and stir thoroughly for 30 seconds to 1 minute to dissolve.

If there are still issues with concentration or dissolution, please contact us through our LINE@ customer service, and we will arrange for a professional technician to assist you over the phone.

The main ingredients of winter melon tea bricks are fresh winter melon and premium refined sugar, derived from refined sucrose. During the refinement process of premium sugar, when the syrup naturally evaporates water and reaches a state of carbonation saturation, sucrose will naturally crystallize from the inside.

To produce winter melon tea bricks, the winter melon solution is mixed with sugar, heated to high temperatures to form winter melon syrup, poured into molds, cooled into brick shapes. During this process, the sugar solution, depending on the orientation of placement, settles to the bottom during cooling, and as moisture evaporates, natural crystals precipitate. This is why winter melon tea bricks may have different-sized white spots, which is a normal natural phenomenon. Winter melon tea bricks belong to the category of sugar products, so special attention should be paid to storage conditions and humidity to prevent moisture absorption.

Forever Sweety Lao Tao Ke’s winter melon tea bricks are produced in a scientific, large-scale manner, with fixed proportions of freshly harvested winter melon and raw sugar. As winter melon is an agricultural product, its aroma can be influenced by factors such as soil, water quality, and weather. To ensure consistent quality, approximately 0.1% of spices are added for aroma standardization, ensuring that each batch of products meets customer standards. Additionally, we accept custom orders without spices. Please contact us for further details.

In compliance with regulations such as HACCP, ISO 22000, Halal certification, and food safety laws, the sourcing of spices must adhere to relevant laws and comply with regulations on food additives.

This is a phenomenon known as deliquescence, where a substance absorbs moisture from the air and becomes a solution.

The air we breathe contains not only oxygen and nitrogen but also carbon dioxide and water vapor.

Because the air contains water vapor, substances with high hygroscopicity tend to absorb moisture from the air, turning into a solution. Dehumidifiers utilize this principle to remove moisture from the air.

The main ingredients of winter melon tea bricks are fresh winter melon and premium refined sugar, derived from refined sucrose. The hygroscopic and hydrophilic properties of sucrose molecules (C12H22O11) make sugar particularly prone to absorbing moisture from the air, thereby dissolving itself into a liquid. Additionally, fructose and invert syrup have higher hygroscopicity than sucrose, making them more susceptible to spoilage and acidification when exposed to air. Once winter melon tea bricks undergo deliquescence, they have undergone a qualitative change and are no longer suitable for consumption.

The correct way to store winter melon tea bricks is to avoid high humidity in the air. Use a hygrometer to monitor the humidity level and keep it below 70%. Store them in a cool, ventilated environment to slow down the rate of deliquescence or prevent it altogether.

If you are using the 550g commercial-sized Lao Tao Ke winter melon tea bricks, we recommend adding 500 c.c. of water to a pot. Bring it to a boil while stirring continuously until it becomes a syrup-like consistency. Then, adjust the water according to your preference to create classic winter melon tea. The winter melon syrup tastes even better after it’s been chilled.

If you are using the 25g household mini winter melon tea bricks, we suggest adding 100 c.c. of hot water and stirring, then adding ice cubes for a refreshing iced winter melon tea.

If you prefer hot winter melon tea, you can add 300 c.c. of hot water and stir.
