Milk Oolong Tea

Originally, this tea produce is a cultivar (a plant variety which was produced through selective breeding). It was derived from a tea bush found in different regions of Taiwan. It is more popularly known in those areas as Jin Xuan, cultivar of camellia sinensis. Jin Xuan, also known as Tai Cha #12, is a relatively new discovery, developed just in the 1980’s. Such that all good oolongs come from a specific tea bush cultivar, the uniqueness of each is relative from which territory it was cultured. Today, Jin Xuan is one of Taiwan’s four main cultivars— this is not a small feat as there are hundreds of cultivars grown in Taiwan alone. THis tea, therefore, is made of pure herb leaves and not a single drop of milk is used in the process. In Western culturers, Jin Xuan is so uncommon that it does not even have an English name. But it is described by Westerners who are familiar with it as the tea with the most diverse taste, and no style better shows what a carefully manipulated leaf processing can do.

Sandwich Nation

The British first referred to “bits of cold meat” as a “sandwich,” named after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, who was an eighteenth-century aristocrat. Legend has it that he instructed his servant to bring him some meat between two pieces of bread while he was playing cards with his cronies. Apparently he could play uninterrupted, as the bread acted as a napkin (rather than his sleeve) and kept the card table tidy. His cronies caught on and followed his lead. What was in them we’ll never know, but what a beginning (the Earl will never know).

Let’s check out these favorites:

  • Elvis immortalized the fried peanut butter and banana sandwich, although there’s not a big call for the.
  • Dagwood, named after comic strip Blondie’s husband, stacks up fillings and bread, impossible to eat except in sections, but somehow Dagwood Bumstead managed.
  • The French originated this sinful sandwich in a Parisian cafe in 1910; there is no one named Monte Cristo but simply a French term (Croque Monsieur) to describe a fried sandwich of ham and cheese, not on any weight loss program to be sure.
