It all sounds like my daily Yogi tea, until they get to what look like bars of chocolate. My sweet tooth starts to ping. Actually, I'm told, it's dried donkey skin called ejiao. When cooked in a soup, it helps regulate menstruation. I decide to pass my Western stomach proving weaker than my bruised body. But rest assured, Beijing, I'll be back. Until then, at least I have NYC's Chinatown to make me more beautiful and brave.
