January is hot tea month! (yes, it is also soup month)
What better way to celebrate than to take part in some local tea.
Chinese herbal teas are quite popular in Hong Kong with a shop selling their brews in just about every mall and MTR station. Today at work they are serving 5 flowers tea which is probably my personal favorite of the Chinese herbal teas.
5 flower tea consists mainly of honeysuckle, crysanthamum, silk cotton, plumeria rubra, and pueraria lobata. The combination can help to remove heat and dampness. If you have a sore throat, insomnia, or indigestion this tea may be helpful for you. Unlike many Chinese herbal tea, this one actually tastes good!
What is your tea of choice this month?
