Honey Citron Korean Tea
Citron tea, commonly known as Korean Honey Citron Tea or yuja cha, is a traditional Korean beverage crafted from the yuja fruit, a citrus variety native to East Asia. Particularly popular in Korea during the chilly winter season, this vitamin C-rich tea is a go-to remedy for cold and flu symptoms, offering immune-boosting properties and quick symptom relief within a day. Beyond immunity, it boasts citric acid for digestive aid, and other potential benefits like improved skin health and weight loss.
To prepare this unique tea, honey, sugar, or other sweeteners are blended with thinly-sliced yuja fruit, including its rind and seeds. This mixture is boiled and simmered until it turns into a syrupy consistency, which can be stored and later spooned into hot or cold water to make the tea. The final brew offers a balance of sweet and tart flavors, accompanied by a fragrant aroma that echoes notes of yuzu fruit, Yuza, mandarin orange, meyer lemon, and other citrus fruits. Enjoy it hot, cold, or even as a versatile syrup for desserts and other beverages. For a cozy and healthful experience, find this traditional Korean tea at Mukbang Shows restaurants in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
