Has anyone heard of this? Usually I would think this is an atrocity to mix good tea up with something else, but I can see how it would be a good way to keep a tea from moulding. I guess you'd have to use a porcelain gaiwan rather than a clay teapot to make this tea.
Home remedy is widely used and relied on by many villagers of the remote mountain, even today's modern medicine is readily available. Phoenix mountain residents keep aged teas for minor colds, coughs, fevers, stomachaches of the like. Aside of the dried method of aging tea, honey preserved tea is also a popular regional treasure. Honey from local hives and Dan Cong tea combined together is not only a tasty drink, but also medicinal.
That's interesting. Honey is a well known medicinal treatment in the West since medieval times and probably well before that. On a somewhat related note, the other day I tried adding a tiny bit of honey to pu-erh tea that I thought might benefit from a sweeter taste. It caused some sort of weird chemical reaction and made the taste incredibly foul - quite to my surprise. More honey made it even worse. Maybe Dan Cong is just naturally a better candidate for this and there is some special sort of process to make it work.

Hey,Thats sound great.I am very happy to read this thread.Honey is a good for health.honey has a good amount of anti-oxidant,anti-inflammatory agents which helps to prevent and reduces many health issues.
No I haven't heard about that. I used honey with tea in stead of sugar to lose weight but it was not a great idea at all. I gained 1 kg more after that. I now drink black coffee in the morning and green tea in the evening.
