Here in Taiwan: Summer is coming... In some ways it feels like it's already been here for a while now. The temperature in Taichung has hovered around the low 30s (celsius) for weeks now.
Soon we will release our Spring Tea selections, including some new delicious products for you to try.
But for now, as the heat sets in, check out one more use for our tea: Ching Cha Mojito Recipe - icook.tw
(This recipe is in Chinese, and was published by Lifang)
We made some last Sunday with the assistance of our cats Babu and Ai-xin.
Essentially, the ingredients are:
1/4 cup strongly brewed Ching Cha (We used extra tea in big glasses.)
2 tbsp fresh lime (or lemon) juice
2 tbsp rum (or sake)
6-8 fresh mint leaves
Sugar to preferred sweetness
A dash of soda water
Mix and enjoy!
