This green tea has a special twist to soothe a sore throat that comes on quickly. Egg whites and sugar are whipped together to add some foam to classic green tea for a cooling and coating effect.

2 tbsp Green tea
2 cups Water
1 Large egg, yolk and white separated
2 tsp Crushed rock sugar or coconut sugar

Place the green tea into a tea ball or tea bag. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Once boiling, turn off the heat, add the tea, cover the pot and steep for 10 minutes. After steeping, remove the tea ball or discard the bag.

Meanwhile, place the egg white in a medium bowl, reserving the yolk for another use. Add the rock or coconut sugar to the white and whisk until frothy. In a mug, pour the tea over the foam and drink.

Tip: For a simplified version, drink just the egg foam whenever your throat is sore or uncomfortable. The mixture can be saved in the fridge for up to three hours.
