    Sharon123's Note:

    This is a curative formula traditionally used in Chinese households as a specific remedy for curing colds, flu, and other bronchial ailments of the "cold" type.(This phrase denotes those bronchial ailments accompanied by chills rather than fever. Since the tea is a warming yang formula, it should not be used for colds accompanied by fever.) It is also an effective therapy for "stomach colds" accompanied by diarrhea, for nausea and motion sickness, and for chronically cold hands and feet. Adapted from A Spoonful of Ginger: Irresistible Health-Giving Recipes from Asian Kitchens by Nina Simonds.

      Sharon - My sister gave a similar recipe for me to try on my DD (as a soup), since she is sick a lot and has stomach nauseau often. Hers included miso, seaweed and shiitake mushrooms also. Here's what she said about it "Basically the miso, the seaweed and the shitakes are DEEP immune builders (and d@@n tastey!), the ginger, the cayenne, the scallions help remove excess heat from the body and get circulation going." Maybe I'll post the recipe...

      I chose this recipe for it's unique ingredients, not thinking I would enjoy them much. Boy oh boy was I suprised, I really enjoyed this drink. It's peppery, spicy, sweet and a touch salty. It makes for a great winter drink as it's very warming, I also think it would work well as a pms drink :) thank you for posting this recipe Sharon.
