“When you find something as refreshing as the Tibetan honey ginger lemon tea is peaceful Himalayas, what could be more perfect. Just sit there sipping your hot cup and admire the beauty. It is very famously called the Tibetan tea for longevity. When you come to think of it, it is a very normal drink which made out of a few basic home ingredients, however it takes art to get the brew perfect with the right blend of all there is in it. It was this spicy sweet mixture which at least I haven’t tasted anywhere else. Ours had these shredded gingers and lemon slices which kept the drink strong and aromatic. Here in the hill stations it is a very famous drink. Whenever you visit the hill stations in the north, the drink is a must try.”
