Cold tea

Ingredients (for one person)
  1. 1/4 cup of boiling water
  2. 1 tea bag
  3. 1 table spoon of sugar
  4. 1 drop of vanilla
  5. 1/2 table spoon of lime juice
  6. 1/2 cup of ice water
  7. 3-4 ice cubs
  1. Prepare tea using boiling water as usual
  2. Add vanilla & let it season for 1-2 minutes
  3. Add tea, cold water, lime & ice cubes together
  4. Blend a bit (to crush ice cubes into small pieces - do not make them too small)
Things to try (or avoid)
  • Do not add lime to hot water, it will kill the taste & nourishment
  • I find Green tea unsuitable for this.
  • You might want to add few drops of ginger
  • Clean up the mess

Carrot Drink

  1. 2 Medium size(5 inches) Carrots
  2. 4 table spoons of lime
  3. 5 table spoons of Sugar
  1. Slice off top part of the carrot (section where leaves fit in - it tastes bad)
  2. Cut the carrots into pieces & put them to blender jug
  3. Add lime
  4. Add sugar and one glass of water
  5. Blend until you see carrot pieces no more
  6. Add two more glasses, blend for some more time & serve
Things to try
  • If you do not like the taste of Carrot, add more lime.
  • Clean up the mess
