Surrounded by flu and cold viruses both at home and at work, I finally caught a cold. I have been having headache and stiff pain at the back of my neck for the past few days. My younger brother even advised me to go for a check-up as few of his friends who are younger than me have had strokes not long ago. Sound scary.
My headache has slowly went away but came with a sore throat and nose irritation. Trying to avoid taking medication, I try Ho Yan Hor Night Tea and Gold Tea this time, a packet of each came free with the purchase of a box of Ho Yan Hor Original tea. This is the first time I tried the Gold one. The taste is much stronger than the Original one as it is blended with 29 natural herbs to cool down the body heat. The main ingredient is Pu-Er Tea Leaves (普洱), Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae (陈皮), and Angelica Pubescentis (独活), and 26 others.
Ho Yan Hor Tea can be taken hot or cold anytime of the day. I still remembered when my parents were not feeling good they used to drink a cup of this tea with smashed small onions and a pinch of salt or salted plum and covered under a thick blanket to sweat out, they felt better after that, that's their experience.
my cup of Ho Yan Hor Gold Tea with a piece of salted plum to taste, it blends in very well.
I also packed a packet of Ho Yan Hor Original Tea & a piece of salted plum to the office this morning, hopefully it will help me to release both the heat and the stress from work as well (blame it on GST).
