  • The preserved sour plum I'm using is rather sour so I using 4 and juice of 2 limes. You can add more if you like.
  • The flavour get stronger the longer you stand the sour plum in hot water.
  • You can drink it hot, warm or chill. I like best when it's ice cold!

    It's similar but with lime juice. I didnt make it too sour. Add more Preserved Sour Plum to make it more sour.
