A touch of honey sweetens the taste.

Well, there is hot lemon too. Maybe it isn't that bad. Bireleys used to make this really nice Hotel Breakfast juice but ever after 3/11 they stopped making it. Too bad. Orange juice is best when it is freshly squeezed especially with Greek oranges. Japan should import Greek or Turkish oranges, they are the only ones that taste really good says me, the world traveller.

Hot drinks in Indonesia?? why?? Coming from Mexico, where my home town, Mexicali gets over 50 centigrade in the summer, anything hot in the hot months just sounds horrible, maybe in the winter but I really doubt Indonesia even has a winter right??

Yes, Indonesia is hot all the year but not as humid as Japan (what I experienced). So it tastes good even in hot season. It's become a tradition to drink it, esp. when you feel like getting cold.

Thanks Naomi, I guess your last sentence you mean when you feel like you are catching a cold, right? I may be bold and daring enough to go out and try this new drink but to tell you the truth, I hate the tastes of any citrus drinks that come from the canned containers, I think they have a very canny taste and it just sends shivers down my backbone, including right now! But if you all down in Indonesia love it, well KANPAI! CHEERS and enjoy!
