Chris Rock versus Tea Party

It looks like Chris Rock is not a fan of the Tea Party movement…

What is the real problem with the Republicans?

Too many Republicans still want to vote with their heart, not their head, it appears, so the whole “Romney would be a better general election candidate” thing still seems to have limited appeal among the true conservative believers. Ever since the rise of the Tea Party in 2010 it was clear that activist conservatives were going to demand, above all else, an anti-Obama campaign from their nominee in 2012.

From Wikipedia:

In some parts of the southeastern United States, a half sweetened/half unsweetened tea is ordered as a “Chris Rock”, named after the comedian originally from Andrews, South Carolina.

Cold Tea Drinks

This post is written by Linus Hammarstrand.

In the West we often drink our tea hot, preferably with some sugar and some milk. In Asia however, this is not always the case. One rather recent phenomena in the long history of tea is to serve it cold in a bottle, pretty much as we would soft drinks. Tea sold in this manner comes in many strange and wonderful flavors, ranging from more staid varieties such as Oolong Tea, Green Tea, Chrysanthemum Tea and Lemon Tea, to the positively outlandish, such as Coffee Tea, Bubble Black Tea and various strange Fruit Teas.

Cold tea is sold all over Asia, and is especially popular in summer (or year around in perpetually warm countries such as Singapore). Next time you are sweltering in the Singaporean or Hong Kong heat, instead of habitually grabbing a Coke, do as the locals and go for a Cold Tea!

Tea Foods of Taiwan

This post is written by Linus Hammarstrand:

There is no end to the variety of tea products in Taiwan. If you go to a local Taiwanese supermarket, you will find tea flavored candy, seeds, drinks, ice creams and porridge, as well as tea-flavored toothpaste, shampoo and shower gel. Odd tea products are however not limited to the supermarkets or to bubble tea vendors.

On a walk through Shilin Night Market in Taipei, we came across this stall, selling food that’s all been cooked, fried or preserved in tea. Fancy pig’s intestines, boiled in Oolong tea? Or why not try the tea-marinated tofu? Just don’t forget to leave some space in your stomach for some tea-flavored desserts!
