Herbal tea is best for hot spell

Sweltering: Grass and leaves turn brown from the scorching heat on a field in George Town. — LIM BENG TATT/The Star

GEORGE TOWN: With the ongoing hot spell, herbal tea seller Kelvin Ng’s sales has increased three-fold.

Ng, 33, who has been operating his herbal tea shop for over 20 years, now sells around 120 cups daily.

“Before, it was only about 40 cups daily. Most of my customers are locals who want a quick remedy to quench their thirst during this prolonged hot spell.

“However, it’s an up and down business and sales are usually not so good on a rainy day, ” he said.

The scorching sun and lack of rain have turned the usually green fields around George Town into shades of brown.

Like the grass, which has all dried up, the leaves of the surrounding trees have also withered.
