Jasmine lends its delicate flavour and aroma to jasmine tea as well as Asian desserts and sweets.
This iced tea is a standard base recipe that is not too sweet and very refreshing on a hot summer day! Asian loose leaf tea leaves give the best result. You can use any concentrated fruit flavouring (bottled or fresh-made), but I prefer lime juice with green tea and lemon juice with black tea.
My grandmother always makes this cake for Christmas. It is a lot lighter than the traditional Christmas fruitcakes. I like the flowery and the fruity flavour.
This is a simple to make Thai rice pudding that incorporates lychees and is served with coconut cream.
This is a simple Thai dessert with homemade tapioca balls in a sweet coconut milk sauce that can be eaten hot or cold.
Taro cakes are a delicious Thai dessert. You should be able to find taro at Asian markets. Great as a snack or light dessert.
This Thai sweet is fun for kids to eat because they can peel off the individual layers as they enjoy it -- an interactive sweet!
