Gingerly Talk

How about to putting some ginger in your life? This wonder spice has time-tested digestion-friendly properties. Especially during winter I like to use dryed or fresh ginger in my soups or my black or green teas a lot both were good for battling cold and flu leaving you with warm feeling.

We find this ginger candy very handy when we are on the go it works wonders you can just eat it as candy or boil some water and make some hearty tea that will warms you up instantly. Image Fresh ginger is a root and can be found in many markets. Always buy a light and plump piece; if its shriveled it is not as fresh. It is also great for use in cooking and steeping fresh ginger tea. For example a simple ginger garlic shrimp dish is out of this world!!
20130303-111424.jpgPeel it, then slice or grate based on your preference. Ginger is naturally fibrous and as you cut into it it should be juicy not dry. Since ginger is quite potent a little bit goes a long way. Ginger is an acquired taste. Best way to introduce it to your family’s diet maybe baking candied ginger into cakes and muffins.

Let’s talk ginger – how do you use it??

We Love Matcha

20130224-091422.jpgWe love matcha tea and want to share our excitement with you. While in Thailand, one day we popped into a cute cafe to have coffee, instead we had Matcha Latte!! We had the tea before but not as a latte … was love at first sip!!

So we bought some matcha tea before we left Thailand so we could recreate that delightful drink at home; to sip and remember our surprise discovery at the cute cafe.

Unlike other teas that come in dried leaves, pearls, or tea bags… matcha is ground to a powder and its bright green. If you never had it before, here is what Matcha is looks like:

Make sure you are buying it from a tea shop or market that turns through product, to ensure you are buying a fresh batch.

Matcha has great health benefits; it is the super antioxidant! Matcha green tea possesses antioxidant levels 6.2 times that of goji berries, 7 times that of dark chocolate, 17 times that of wild blueberries and 60.5 times that of spinach!

How to make matcha latte at home:

  • 1 1/2 cup milk or soy milk
  • 2 heaping teaspoons of matcha, less or more as you prefer
  • 1 small cube of sugar
  • Bring milk to near boil – add the cube year and stir. Melt matcha in little bit of the hot milk or hot water, whisk till smooth paste. I prefer to melt it in the milk, but some claim you get better result with hot water. Then add the paste to the milk and whisk to create a light foam. Pour into your favorite cup and enjoy it.

    As you can see I really like my latte with a lot of matcha. You can adjust how much you use based on your preference. Hope you try this great drink. Here is to your health!!

    Surprise Tea-Time with Kusmi

    This time we are introducing exclusive and high quality blends from Kusmi tea. They are made in France and they have many kinds of blends — hard to choose just few. Finally, I choose this two blends for special tea-time gatherings.

    Green St Petersburg: is green china tea with scents of citrus fruits, red fruits, vanilla and caramel.

    Spicy Chocolate: is black china tea with natural scents of chocolate and spices. Oh this is my favorite as a chocolate lover it’s addictive!

    Tea is great for health and warms you up in a cold winter day without costing you much in calories. Tea is much better to drink than sugar loaded sodas. Your body will thank you for drinking real an quality tea.
