Jehotang is a cold Korean tea made with honey and several ingredients used in traditional Korean medicine. The ingredients include omaeyuk (烏梅, dried and roasted fruits of Prunus mume), sain (砂仁, Amomi Semen), baekdanhyang (檀香, Santali Albi Lignum), and chogwa (草果, Amomum tsao-ko). The powdered ingredients are mixed together with honey and water and then boiled. After the liquid is chilled, it is diluted in cold water. It was considered the best summer drink in Korean royal court cuisine.[2]
