Jung Chang Quotes: The Manchus Drank Tea With A Lot Of Milk

The Manchus Drank Tea With A Lot Of Milk. In Her Case, The Milk Came From The Breasts Of A Nurse. Cixi Had Been Taking Human Milk Since Her Prolonged Illness In The Early 1880s, On The Recommendation Of A Renowned Doctor. Several Wet Nurses Were Employed, And Took Turns To Squeeze Milk Into A Bowl For Her. The Nurses Brought Their Sucking Babies With Them, And The Woman Who Served Her The Longest Stayed On In The Palace, Her Son Being Given Education And An Office Job.
