I’ve been sleep deprived for months and the changing weather doesn’t help at all. Everytime I start sneezing, I just make myself a cup of hot honey citron tea. “citron tea” is known in Korea as “yu-ja-cha” (Hangul: ìœ ìžì°¨). “ìœ ìž” is citron while “ì°¨” or “cha” means “tea”. Honey is “ê¿€” or “kkul”. ê¿€ìœ ìžì°¨ “kkul yuja cha” is honey citron tea.
ìœ ìžì°¨ replaces my coffee habit whenever I’m feeling under the weather. A 600 gram bottles costs 6,000 won depending on the brand. I’ve learned from experience that brands don’t really matter. I use one tablespoon of the tea and fill the cup with hot water. Don’t use boiling water. Just add more tea if desired.
