Top 5 Spa Waters

There’s something about a jug of infused water in the fridge.
Maybe it’s the colors.
Maybe it’s the sound of crushed ice in a long drink glass.
Maybe it’s the fact that it’s hyped and everyone’s doing it and I feel part of a bigger purpose in this universe when I brew my own magical happy potions.
At any rate, here’s my fav ones!
(Put each of these in the fridge for a good 4-6 hours to achieve full flavor powarrrr!)
1. Mint & Citrus: herby and sharp
Add your ice, your stuff, your liquids and gulp!

8tea5: Strawberry Popping Boba

Enterrrr the noms! But first let me pull out the wictionary.
Traditional boba are tapioca “pearls” used in a drink called Bubble Tea, which is from Taiwan. The tapioca pearls are gummy little additions that people slurp up large straws in their sweetened tea.
Popping Boba
Popping boba aren’t the traditional tapioca balls of bubble tea. In fact, they aren’t chewy at all, and they have a very thin outer membrane that bursts sweet liquid as soon as you bite into them.
Okido! Well a bubble tea bar here in Antwerp has recently started selling their popsters to-go, curiosity made me do it.

Pink Panther Lemonade

Blimey! I created pink lemonade in my cauldron (or mixer, whatever). As in bright pink. With the help of wonderberries (FINE – red berries).
Sheesh. But looking at the color of the lemonade i’d honestly mistake them for magical berries.
Not a lot of shots because I hadn’t planned on making this into a post. But when I saw the bright outcome I felt the need to share this happy looking drink!

Venti Iced Masala Chai Latte coming right up!

What do you think? Can I go work at Starbucks? ;)

What the..?

Masala chai is a blend of classic black tea with aromatic Indian spices and herbs, often “chai tea” refers to the same thing.
Add some milk and you have a chai latte!
Add ice and you get an iced chai latte!
Etc etc until you create a name you can’t pronounce at 7 in the morning.
Because of all the spices chai tea is incredibly healthy for your digestive system, immune system and your mood.. :D

What we’ll need:

  • Water
  • Black tea
  • Cooking pot
  • Strainer
  • Ginger (fresh or powdered)
  • Cloves
  • Fennel seeds
  • Cardamom
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar or honey
  • Milk

That’s a whole lot of spices but they stay with you for ages and make your counter look all cosy.
So it’s an investment really!
