I debated making a listing for this blend, but I figure I will likely be drinking it often while I’m here so I went for it. I went to the grocery store today, originally hoping to find just some bagged tea with lemon and/or ginger. Right when you walk in the grocery store, though, they have a ton of bulk loose green and oolong tea of various kinds, and while I was looking at what was available I realized that on the table there was also a ton of dried “mix ins” for your tea! All kinds of flowers, mostly, but also some herbs, goji berries, anise, etc. I picked up a bag of jasmine flowers to try, but I was most excited to see a lovely bag of dried lemon slices. Score! I couldn’t find any dried ginger so I picked up a fresh tuber. This cup of tea was made with a small scoop of the Wu Yu Tai Tieguanyin Third Grade, one large lemon slice, and about a half inch of ginger root. I also added honey for its throat soothing qualities. The result? Yummy! My random blending worked out. I could maybe go for a tad more lemon, but I can still taste it there no problem. The ginger is perfect. And it is soothing on the throat, with soothing vapors for my poor, battered lungs. This is definitely the fastest I’ve ever had a cough go from zero to very painful (1 day), and it probably won’t get any better until I leave Beijing and it’s pollution behind (a little over 2 weeks). So yeah, I’ll be brewing up this one often.

Hang in there! Can you find some fresh lemon or citrus fruit? A jolt of vitamin C will really help. (The honey is great, too!)

I thought you were in China!? It sounds like you are on heaven! Bulk tea?? Add ins?? Swoon!

That description of your shopping experience with all of the loose leaf tea and the ‘mix-ins’ sounds wonderful. I think I would feel like a kid in a candy store. : )

Yeah I was just thinking about how I wanted to try to bring some of the “mix-ins” home since they are so cheap. I haven’t tried the tea yet but I am thinking about picking up some to add some variety to my life.

Jen – I have been going for lots of vitamin C lately, including supplements. Hopefully things start looking up soon!

if you can find a place that serves Congee, with preserved egg and ginger in it… that stuff works wonders for me when I’m sick!! better than chicken soup! I can’t imagine how good it’d be from the homeland. Mmmm.
and mix-ins for tea… omg, that IS heaven!

Dinosara

Mm, that does sound good! I’ll have to try and find some. :)
