Whenever Cumi has a sore-throat or is feeling a little too much “heat” in his body, he drags me to visit the herbal medicinal tea man, on Jalan Pasar.
For me, coming from a scientific background, I honestly do not trust the brown stuff/powder that the old man mixes into the herbal tea. It tastes gross for starters, really bitter and also, if I cannot read the labeled ingredients, I do not trust the contents.
However, Cumi swears by it. Apparently, from the look of things, so do a lot of other people, including children. Cumi says that it actually relaxes his body and makes him feel sleepy.. and he’s right as rain the next day! Well, whatever works for you baby.
