A Refreshing Tropical Cooler

A Refreshing Tropical Cooler

 

I've just arrived in India, and one of my favorite things about visiting Asia is eating all the tropical fruits! Papayas, mangoes, lychees, coconuts, jackfruit... you name it! I love experimenting with tea recipes, so in this post, I'm sharing a refreshing tropical cooler that's perfect for this time of year! You can find all these fruits, plus many new kinds of exotic fruits at Asian markets (I like Mekong Supermarket), so you can still get your hands on these fruits if you don't find them at your local supermarket. 

 

You will need: 

  • 2 young coconuts 
  • 2 tbsp Happy Place (leaves)  
  • 1/2 cup fresh mango, cubed (you can use frozen as well) 
  • 5-6 lychees, peeled and seeded  
  • Mint Leaves (optional) 

 

To make this, crack open both coconuts and pour the coconut water into a diffuser or pitcher for cold-brewing. Next, add the Happy Place leaves to the coconut water and cold brew the tea according to the instructions. You can even cold brew it in the fridge. 

 

 

When the tea has steeped, strain the leaves and add all the fruit. You can experiment with different fruits as well! Allow the fruit to infuse for at least one hour (longer is better), chill, and serve. Enjoy!

Hey Tea Lover: If You're Drinking Tea From A Teabag, You Might Be Consuming Thousands Of Plastic Particles With Every Cup

April 15, 2021 1 Comment

Did you know... Many tea companies sell their tea in teabags that are made with plastic? I hate to say it, but it's true. A recent study conducted in 2019 showed that many of the teabags made by some of the most popular brands contain plastic. The study showed that one teabag of tea steeped at 95C (203F) released “approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.1 billion nanoplastics into a single cup of the beverage.” This is a much higher level of plastic being ingested than what you are exposed to in other foods.
