Solar Terms: minor heat (小暑)


Based on the name or the solar term, 「小」 means little, or minor, 「暑」means torridity. 

Although it is not the hottest weather, it is pretty humid and hot. Recent years,
temperatures can go up to 35 degrees Celsius. Afternoon thunderstorms make the 
temperature a lot more bearable. 
This is the season when people eat things such as Jelly figs ice, Xiancao ice, ice tapioca, red bean ice, ice green beans. (may be a bad translation..) 

Remember to find a quiet place to meditate during this solar term!
