The Magic of Ginger Tea and Glutinous Dumplings

Chinese do not use ginger only for cooking. Ginger tea, ginger soup, ginger milk, ginger milk tea…are very popular Chinese drinks. Apart from its medical function of warding off body cold and rheumatism, it also improves digestive system and relieving pains especially for soar throats.

I like the fragrance of ginger. Even at home, I add ginger juice to my milk tea and I really love it. Tonight the ginger dessert I have is really very delicious – Glutinous Dumplings in Ginger Tea – highly recommended.
