The 24 Solar Terms:

Rain Water, February 19th 

(yǔ shuǐ 雨水)

There is an increase in rainfall starting this term. Perhaps there will be more snow in Colorado. However, you can feel the warmth in the air. Spring is coming.

For this issue, we picked another Chinese dish for you to try at home: Egg and Tomato Stir-Fry.

In this video, Chef Wang teaches you how to make a favorite Chinese dish in six different ways. Although he speaks Chinese, there are English subtitles for the video. It is entertaining to watch how Chef Wang cooks.

Herbal teas for this term (Feb. 19 - March. 6):

  1. White Chrysanthemum flowers, green tea, and sugar (1:2:1)

Instruction: Numbers indicate portions of each herb. Soak herbs in hot water for a few minutes. Honey or crystal sugar can be added for sweetness.
