Brewing the Apocalypse

The Wei to Happiness-Wei Triplet Boba Tea mixes. 
To make your boba: Go to a chinese market and aquire a package of dried tapioca pearls, also called ‘boba’. Cook on the stove according to directions then place in covered bowl in fridge to chill. Place about 1/2 cup in the bottom of your favorite glass and make sure you have the proper straws on hand! 
For a fruity boba tea or snow, you’re going to need a blender. Take about half a cup of your favorite fruit, berry, or fresh coconut, 2 cups ice, 1/8th cup sugar and 1/8th cup powdered creamer. Add all of that to the blender with about 1/3 cup green tea and blend into a slush. For more tealike drink, add more green tea. 
A less fruity drink would be the Thai Tea blend. You take your favorite black tea and brew it very strong, with sweet spices like star anise, cardamom, and tamarind. While the tea is hot, sweeten it until it’s as sweet as you like (Some like it not sweet at all, some like it syrupy sweet, it’s up to you really) and pour over ice. On top, add either evaporated milk, or coconut milk. Place boba on top and stir with straw for a pleasantly bright mixture. 
A popular variation is the Thai Coffee, and it’s made the same as you would make the Thai Tea, except you brew your coffee as strong as you like and add a sweet creamer to the top, then pour the whole mess over ice and add your boba. My favorite is using Hazelnut creamer and a shot of chocolate syrup. 
Enjoy anywhere, especially on a hot summers day with good company and lots of laughter!

This little guy caught my eye and I had to just go ‘okay, this is for Newt. Or Newt would get one for Hermann.’
The Tea Rex infuser is a nifty little thing that I am now ordering for myself, so maybe soon a product review. Anyhow, they can be acquired for about $11 bucks on thinkgeek. Just search Tea Rex. 
I’m sure with a little modification and possibly some food-safe coloring, this could be a KAIJU tea infuser instead.

heller-hemingway-and-hot-coffee said: what kind of coffee do you use?

I personally use a really cheap roast that I get at the corner store for everyday. When I get it I like to use a really dark Colombian roast or one of the little local roasters here, and brew it like espresso. I may have a problem, but so long as coffee is still legal in the USA, I’m not admitting to it. 

Kaidanovsky Campfire- Happy Hour Special
This blend of tea is a variety of smoked tea called a Russian Caravan blend, only this particular one has added elements of warm bourbon. It’s rich and fragrant, smelling like a warm fire and tasting rich and earthy. The tea itself can be gotten under the name ‘Russian Caravan’ and should be ordered from a supplier, not a distributor. 
The tea should be brewed hot, about four minutes to steep per teaspoon of tea to cup of water, gently simmering on the stove. Drink with a little sugar, or if you like some whole milk floated gently on top. 
To drink it like a Jeager pilot, add a half-shot of bourbon whiskey to the glass, and pour your sweetened tea over it. Hot toddies have nothing on this rich, warming tea. 
Drink in the evening, preferably over a game of cards and with the fallen bodies of your competition already passed out on the floor behind Cherno Alphas Tech locker room.

The Mako Mocha
Medium-roast coffee, brewed strong and black. In the bottom of your cup take a couple spoons of dark chocolate bakers powder and sweetener of choice and two spoons of coffee. Blend in the bottom of your  cup until it’s a thick paste, with no bubbles and all the chocolate and sweetener are wet. Pour hot coffee over chocolate and sweetener, stirring well. 
If desired, top with a scoop of chocolate or mint chocolate ice cream. 
Drink hot on a snowy morning, when all you have to do for the day is crawl back into bed and snuggle with your usual buddy.

a-girl-named-stu said: I feel like I just stumbled upon the beginnings of a great blog. I'm gonna go try and make all your recipes at once and probably go into caffeine shock, but it will be worth it. Can't wait to see what you got coming next!

This blog disclaims any liability due to caffeine overdose sustained in the pursuit of this endeavor. On the other hand, tell me what you think and if you have any ideas! I’m hoping that if I get enough feedback I can post stuff to Adagio and things like that. I’m hoping to post two to three recipes a day. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to know what you think! Drop your favorite recipe in the submit box and I’ll see what I can do to throw it on the menu! 

The Tendo Chai. 
Dark roast coffee, ground fine. Espresso is only for advanced students. Mix into your coffee grounds a teaspoon of nutmeg and a teaspoon of cloves. Brew coffee in either a french press or espresso machine, and add to mug. Float a couple pinches of cinnamon and powdered ginger on top. Sweeten with either caramel or chocolate syrup. If milk must be added, make it steamed. 
Drink on a cool morning with rain, and listen to a brass band. Wear a bowtie for extra class.

This is a recipe blog! If you’ve got a favorite drink, hot or cold, send it in! I’ll find a cute picture for it and apply it to the menu. I’m working on Tendo Chai right now…a dark spiced coffee. 

hannibalchai:

The Hannibal Chai everyone. One of the many delights of the End of the World Cafe. 
Making of: Heat your water and add in some slivered ginger, not much. pour over tea, either Oolong, or a nice rich Darjeeling. Add in a pinch of ground cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and a pinch of allspice. Allow to steep. Add almond milk and sweetener of choice. 
No people or kaiju were harmed in the making of this beverage. 

So I did a thing. It’s a pretty cool thing. I need moooore. If you have a favorite recipie throw that bad boy up and I’ll probably match it to a time of day and a song to listen to while making it.
