I understand. I meant that I could not have any mint flavour with milk, let alone in milk. I guess it's an acquired taste. I've also seen milk/citrus drinks.. Orange, lemon etc.. I couldn't enjoy those either.

Hmmmm... it doesn't seem like we have it here in Calif. Does it taste like you're eating peppermint leaves?

Good Morning from Italy! :wink:
During the summer I prefer fruit juice and lemon tea in a great quantity ... and also... coffee mixed in a shaker!

Ingredients (for 1 person) 8)

1 coffee cup of weak black coffee
1 coffee spoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla syrup
4 or 5 ice cubes

Sugar the weak black coffee and you have to leak it in a shaker full of 4 or 5 ice cubes. :)
Then you have to add the syrop, bung and shake for 1 minute. :wink:
Then you can serve in a stem glass,sprinkle with cocoa, some coffee bean or mint leaf. :o
IT'S READY!!! :P

This summer I drink this new wonderful coffee Javaberry. My family just fall in love with it taste. It quenches the thirst and appeases the hunger simultaneously.

I used to drink Coke a lot a few years ago. Now it makes me feel full. Now I don't usually have gas drinks...

I don't like carbonated drinks either, I prefer to drink purified water or cold fruit juice in the hot days

Does any Chinese guy here know "ErGuoTou"? That's the best drink, not only in summer.

wow, it's a kind of white wine with very high degrees which you can't consider it as a drink in summer

Not only in summer, all year long!
Best drink of all, nobody dared to drink it exept of me. Stephengao, don't you like it? Then you can come to KunMing and I will drink with you.

a cup of green tea, why not?


has anyone of you ever once tried green tea? if yes, you have a right choice ( just in my opition)
if no, allow me to advice you to try it once. my reason is because according to our traditional conception (vietnamese), it plays a rolle not only as solacing the thirst (in hot summer, notable in last european summer,reportedly up to 38 grad in some west european nations like germany, france,... i am :shock: ) but as delivering preventive medicine to some disease as to liver,kidney, heart...

however, i must add that this is our customs, as i know, there is no offical research published on link between this tea´s effect and human health.
anyway it has no bad impact on your health, since our people consuming much tea a day have no health problem.

let´s try and enjoy it.
