Winter has arrived with a bang as the first snows have already begun sweeping across Northern China. It seems like it was just a few weeks ago when complaints about the scorching heat were still a common topic of conversation. Not anymore. Now the priority has turned to alleviating the increasingly bitter cold and how to stay warm and healthy this winter. According to the Chinese, one of the best ways of safeguarding yourself from the cold and flu is by drinking plenty of hot drinks. Though the usual emphasis may be on drinking hot water, we think coffee will do the job too. Snuggle up tight and know where to get your coffee fix in Xi’an this winter.
