Honey Citron Tea for Colds
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: 유자차). “유자” is citron while “차” or “cha” means “tea”. Honey is “꿀” or “kkul”. 꿀유자차 “kkul yuja cha” is honey citron tea.
유자차 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.
