Slimy, yet satisfying

Earlier this week, I asked if anyone could identify this:
what is this

There were some valiant efforts. Jenni thought it was an Asian mushroom dish. Cindy guessed a plant, but Chris said it looked more like sickle cell anemia. C&K’s pimp suggested sauteed tapeworm in oyster sauce. Karan and Celine thought it was a photo of green beans. But the entry that made me laugh the hardest was the one from weaker vessel who asked if it was French fries after a tsunami. Thanks to all who played, but unfortunately we have no winners. (Cindy was close though.) Next time, I’ll make it easier or offer a prize for most outlandish guess or something.

So now, the big reveal.

First, you take some Jasmine Dragon Phoenix pearls from Teavana.

Pour 1 teaspoon of the pearls into the Teavana Perfect Tea Maker.

Add some steamy, boiling hot water.


Seep for 1-2 minutes and watch the pearls unravel.

After 2 minutes, place the Perfect Tea Maker on top of your mug. Soothing jasmine green tea magically dispenses into your mug.
