This morning’s breakfast fruit plate of Mango, Mangosteen and Japanese Plum. I love peeled mangosteen - not only because it’s easier to eat, but also because they look like cute little flower bulbs.

Day 18 TeaCoupGlobal. Suutei tsai is a traditional Mongolian beverage. The name suutei tsai in Mongolian means milk tea. The ingredients to suutei tsai are typically water, milk, tea and salt. A simple recipe might call for one quart of water, one quart of milk, a tablespoon of green tea, and one teaspoon of salt. Some recipes use green tea while others use black tea. Some recipes even include butter or fat. Another common addition to the suutei tsai is fried millet. The tea that the Mongolians use for suutei tsai commonly comes from a block. The block consists of a lower quality of tea that is made up of stems or inferior tea leaves and is compressed into a block that can be easily stored. When needed, the tea is chipped off and added to the suutei tsai. Pic CRT Kevinschoemaker #teacoup #teacoupglobal #tea #asia#Mongolia#tradition
