Now this is something that I will be trying soon. This is a tasty, flavorful, tangy drink. When served hot it may help in fighting cold or flu symptoms. For a sweeter drink add honey or sugar to taste. When served cold it is the Chinese answer to American lemonade. Posted from for play in Culinary Quest.
