#Rose Tea – Chinese Herbal Tea

13 Mar


However despite my mistaken belief that they loved #EnglishTea , I have since learned that the actually prefer #herbal teas.  This box for sal at the local supermarket is full of #roses for #rosetea. They also like #lavender tea, #chamomile, #jasmine, and others.  Makes the #cafe very fragrant!

Chinese #IceCream – you can have mine :p

25 Feb

The #Chinese concept of #icecream and my idea of a delicious treat are not the same 😂 This was a Chinese popsicle my student likes – green tea with a red bean filling.  Somehow not quite the same as good old fashioned Chocolate 😜

#Music at #KTV makes for Fun Times in #China!

17 Feb

I ❤ KTV and #music!! It’s the Chinese name for #Karaoke .  My students and I like to Visit this one because It’s cheaper during the day.  Usually in China, you can go during the day for a lot less than at night. Sometimes you can get a free room as long as you buy a certain amount of snacks 😄 It’s a great way for the students to practice their #esl 😃 This one just updated their pictures outside!

Spicy Beef and Bamboo soup

15 Feb

#Spicy beef and bamboo sprout #soup with noodles.  Traditional Chinese dish here in Henan- made from #spices that numb your mouth :p

Happy Chinese Lantern Festival!

11 Feb

Happy Lantern Festival!  Tonight is the night (15 days after #ChineseNewYear ) when the Chinese light paper lanterns and send them up to the sky.  

My picture wasn’t very good 😭 I’ll post a better one later. But the #moon sure was pretty! Here in Zhengzhou, we have the highest smog records for the country, so the moon is a rare night.  Today was perfect for the festival! Clear skies, brisk air, and a good wind. 😄 

Wishing you all the best and a great upcoming year! 🍀
