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!

Summer Iced Tea Sorbet

The Chef Jamie Roraback has shared an awesome recipe of Summer Iced Tea Sorbet.

Iced Tea Sorbet
Makes Approximately 1 Quart

For Sugar Syrup

1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Water

Combine in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve, and bring to a boil on high heat.

Turn off, and allow to chill fully. There will be extra syrup for future sorbets.

For Sorbet

3 Cups Brewed Tea (any favorite), cooled
1 Cup Sugar Syrup (approximately – the amount varies depending on the sugar and content of each juice – see method of determining correct sugar content below)
Fresh Lemon or Lime Juice to taste

In tall, narrow container, like a large iced tea glass, pour in your brewed tea of taste.

Now, place a well washed whole egg gently into the mix. It should sink to the bottom. Gradually pour in sugar syrup until the egg begins to float. Continue until the egg shell floats and the surface the size of a dime is exposed over the top of the tea mix. This is correct sugar density for sorbet. If less than a dime sized circle is exposed, add more sugar, if more is exposed, add a little water.

Flavor to taste with a dash of lemon or lime juice, or even raspberry vinegar if desired. Remember, that the mix will taste a bit duller when frozen since our taste buds are a bit numbed when the mix is frozen.

Pour this mix into an ice cream/sorbet maker and freeze fully according to manufacturers directions. Transfer mix into small plastic containers leaving no air, cover and store in freezer to fully freeze. Serve garnished with some fresh fruits that go with the sorbet and a mint leaf. Enjoy!
