If you think that the fruit is the best part of the peach tree, you are sorely missing out on the wonders of peach gum. Not only does the resin from Chinese peach trees taste great, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is also full of benefits for our health and well-being. Combine it with honey and you have a delicious beauty drink that not only nourishes but also tastes refreshing.
What Is Peach Gum?
Also known as Tao Jiao, peach gum are solidified saps from wild peach trees. Historically, it was used as part of the Chinese women’s beauty regimen, a staple in many grandmothers’ secret to keeping their youthfulness and mobility largely due to the peach gum’s rich content. But the wonders of peach gum go beyond its beautifying properties — it’s also good for your overall health.
In TCM, peach gum has either a “cold” or neutral property, meaning that it can help harmonize the spleen and the stomach, and it helps activate and tone the blood to make you less susceptible to illnesses. It is also commonly used to alleviate pain since it is rich in amino acids.
Usually, peach gum comes as hard, the pebbly resin that requires soaking overnight to become edible. We’ve made it easier for you by offering it in a honey-mixed drink that builds on the peach gum’s nourishing properties.
Honey + Peach Gum
Peach gum is traditionally prepared as a dessert soup or broth, where the hard resin is softened to a more gummy bear-like consistency by boiling it for a minimum of 8 hours. It also has a slightly woody taste from the tree bark, which is why it is often boiled with sweeter ingredients like longan fruit, lychee or in our case, floral honey.
Like peach gum, honey holds its own in the beautifying department, thanks to its antioxidant and antibacterial properties, it is a common ingredient in facial masks or scrubs. Ingested, it helps tissue regeneration, soothes sore throats, and is a sought-after prebiotic that helps your intestines develop good bacteria to aid digestion. Floral honey is made from the nectar that bees have collected from flowering plants, giving the honey a subtle fragrant taste.
