My first blog posting has absolutely nothing to do with tea but a fond farewell to Jon Stewart. Watching him over the last sixteen years was my daily ritual – even when I was in Sri Lanka. A few years ago, my mom peeped over my computer screen one day and said, “Isn’t he a famous comedian?” Yes mom, he is and then again more than just a comedian. His wry wit and biting repartee made me a fan early on. His emotional monologue after 9/11 spoke volumes not only of our collective sadness but also our resilience stronger than any speechwriter. He’s also the reason my library includes “It Worked for Me“, “Winner Take All“, “Flash Boys” and “The Wordy Shipmates“. I am struggling to be more articulate here but at the end I simply just want to say, “Thank You, Be Well and We’ll Miss You.”
The sixteen years went by in a flash and in a little over an hour , I get to see his show for one last time. After that I’m not sure what I’ll do – maybe have a nice cup of tea.
That will be my moment of Zen.

They’re so simple, just some coconut milk, matcha (green tea powder–don’t substitute green tea leaves in any form), a bit of sweetener, and a little milk to thin everything out. What results is pure divinity–a rich, yet light coconutty flavor paired with aromatic, grassy matcha. They are Amazing.
The perfect cool treat when you’re craving something creamy and looking for something a little gourmet. I won’t even mention the health benefits of matcha and coconut milk. It might just put us both over the edge from obsession to full-fledge addiction. Continue reading Green Tea Coconut Popsicles
