Thomas // 1/23/2018 to Cooking With Tea
The Ancient Kombucha - Take Your Tea to Another LevelKombucha takes your tea to another level. It’s unique and delicious. And it may even help promote a healthy digestive tract. This traditional fermented drink, made with tea and sugar, contains active cultures. The addition of a SCOBY (a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) creates a nutrient-rich drink that provides vitamins, minerals, acids and enzymes. Fermentation can take anywhere from 5-10 days depending on the temperature of the space and the thickness and strength of the scoby. Sugar is consumed during fermentation, so kombucha ends up being a low-sugar drink when ready to consume. It’s slightly sweet and tangy flavor is delicious.

Thomas // 1/17/2018 to Flavored Tea
Spicy, sweet, delicious chai! Most Westerners think of chai as the milky, sweet, spice-filled brew. But in India, the word 'chai' refers to tea of ANY kind, be it sweet or astringent, spicy or plain. Masala chai, on the other hand, is strong black tea mixed with spices, sweetened with honey or sugar. Indian food incorporates a combination of spices, called masala (typically a regional variation of cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, cloves, cumin and/or black pepper). So, 'masala chai' simply means 'spiced tea' in India!
