Hi mummies, besides the crysanthemum tea and barley drink. May I know what other stuffs do you make for the family to cool off the heatiness?
I have also tried chuan pei with the pear.

Would like to make more for the family as they will be taking lots of CNY goodies soon.

ju hua can be mix with jing ying hua, lo han guo and ginseng roots also for a higher potency liang teh.

easy one with just hot water (no need boil) - american ginseng + honey

most convenient one is 3 leg brand cooling water - <$1 fr med halls

green beans + lily bulbs + winter melon sugar strips - sweet so gd for kids. green beans clean the blood of toxin and lily bulbs clear lungs heat

old cucumber + pork ribs - use as a meal time soup

watercress + ikan billis - quick boil of the veg its v cooling soup

annieloh, i also always make the barley with beancurd and ginko nuts. but my girl don't like them. she hates the beancurd floating in the water. usually, she likes drinks with no "particles" floating in the water
