| 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.

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

| 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|

| did u get the special beancurd for 'tang shui'. It will totally dissolve when boiled. They always asked me is it soya milk I added for that dessert cos it jus looks like soya milk w added barley & ginko nuts.|
