The insane heatwave is slowly melting me away. Climate change is inevitable. But what we are doing is actually speeding up the process, rapidly. Sorry, I got off track. Anyway, there are lots of ways to cool our bodies down. 1 is stuck in an air-conditioned room. 2, is to keep ourselves hydrated with cups of tea. Especially this chrysanthemum tea.
You can google the health benefits of chrysanthemums. One of which in particular is helping to cool our bodies down, especially in this scorching hot wave. You can probably find all the ingredients in a Chinese grocery store. Or try Amazon. Chrysanthemum gives off this wonderful floral aroma and flavor.
Some like it hot...
You have to give it a try to find out for yourself. Cheers!
