Yuja Tea – Kick Your Colds Into Touch With This Great Korean Recipe
Koreans just like their East Asian counterparts, the Chinese and Japanese, love their tea.

They use it to treat a cold but it’s a warming concoction at any time of the year.

Karak Chai Tea: A Very Unusual Take On A Cup Of Tea
This recipe from Cooking Ring may be for the most unusual cup of tea that I’ve ever encountered. It uses ginger, cardamom and cloves among its many ingredients to create a taste that’s closer to Arabic coffee than it is to tea. I really enjoyed making this and it’s very much worth a try:
