Let's Tea Together

WHENEVER I CHECK IN TO HOTELS in different states or countries I go to, I always remember to bring back the tea bags or coffee packets with me each time I check out.  I do not drink coffee till today but I do start drinking tea nowadays, especially those Green Tea or Jasmine Tea.  These tea are best consumed after a heavy meal while they are still brewing hot, take them sip by sip... hmmm... that is the satisfaction.   As I eat out so often especially those oily dishes, the first thing I go home, I would get my Ecooe Glass Teapot to make a nice and hot drink and slowly sip it while I relax.  But I know my body system pretty well, I do not consume tea in the late evening, the best time for me to drink is during or after breakfast or lunch.

Alright, how do I brew my Herbal Tea?  I do it according to the beginner's guide as in the website here.  

1)  Put in 2 teaspoons of any loose leaf tea for every cup (8oz) of tea.  As for my case, I use loose Green Tea, (heard that one can lose weight effectively drinking green tea daily)  
2)  Rinse the tea.
3)  Then fill the teapot with hot water and leave it for 3-5 minutes to let it steep in.
4)  Take out the infuser if you like, as for me, I like to leave the infuser in so that I can replenish it with hot water anytime I finish drinking.

I really like my cute little Ecooe Glass Teapot which is purchased through Amazon here, so convenient and easy to use and wash.  No more using a filter to separate the tea whenever it is poured out. Among other tea leaves, there are also Ginger Tea, Lemon Balm Tea, Rosehip Tea, Chamomile Tea which suits my taste pretty well.  Now I am thinking of getting some Peppermint and Lemongrass tea, I heard that they are really beneficial to my body system, as to taking off "wind and gas" especially I eat out quite so often.  As Chinese always use to say, "Let's go Yam Char" (drinking tea), it also means Tea brings  Family and Friends together.  :)

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
