The winter juice winner – mandarin drink! Mandarins arrived in our county after 1850, but their history starts in China 3000 years ago. They took their name from the Mandarins, the Chinese officials, because of their colour that was the same as that of Mandarins’ uniform. It is not surprising that the mandarin is considered the winter king, as it is the most delicious and juicy citrus fruit, rich in nutrients that shield the body against illnesses and diseases. It is eaten raw or as dessert or as beverage and alcoholic drink (mandarin flavoured liqueur).
