  • White tea
    White tea is nothing more than the leaves of the camellia sinensis that have been processed a certain way. It is the least common of the four types of teas

    White teas are the least processed of any tea and therefore taste the most like fresh leaves or grass. They also have the lowest amount of caffeine and most likely have the highest antioxidant properties.

    Black tea
    Black tea is generally stronger in flavor and contains more caffeine it is also made with camellia

    Jasmine tea
    Jasmine Tea is a famous tea made from Green or Pouchong (Chinese Green) tea leaves that are scented with jasmine flowers. The jasmine flowers are harvested during the day and stored in a cool place until night. During the night, the flowers bloom with full fragrance. The flowers are layered over the tea leaves during the scenting process. The quality of Jasmine tea is determined by the quality of green tea used as its base and the effectiveness of the scenting. Ten Ren offers Jasmine tea, imported from China and Taiwan, in a variety of grades and modalities for your enjoyment.

    Iced Tea
    iced tea is nothing but cold tea,a dding ice to tea

    Brewing Tea

    Brewing tea is really quite easy. Here are some instructions for brewing a perfect cup of tea.

    First start with cold, great tasting, water. If your tap water does not taste good, then use filtered or bottled water. (I say to use cold water because a typical hot water heater will often add contaminants and reduce the amount of oxygen in the water, which is needed for flavor extraction).

    Then bring the desired amount of water to a rolling boil. (Do not boil the water for a long period of time because this too will deplete the water of oxygen).

    Put approximately 2 grams or 1 tsp. of tea leaves per 6-8 oz. of water into a pre-heated pot or cup (pre-heating will allow the tea to steep at the proper temperature).

    Then add hot water according the chart below for the type of tea you are brewing. Please note that these are general guidelines. If your tea container has brewing instructions I would follow those as they are probably ideal for that specific tea.

    The water temperature does not have to be exact. The main thing to remember is to not use boiling water for Green or White teas. They will burn and create bitter flavors.

    A good way to guess at the water temperature without a thermometer is to bring the water to a boil, and wait about 30 seconds (for white tea) or 60 seconds (for green tea) before pouring over the leaves.

    Green Tea

    this is also made with the leaves of the camellia sinensis it is japan tea

    Oolong tea

    Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea, it is in between green and black oxidation

    Chamomile Tea

    this is made with chamomile flowers its a good herbal tea

  • pop queen Madonna, Canadian singer Celine Dion, and the Prince Of Wales' wife Camilla Parker-Bowles have in common? One genealogist claims that they are all related.

    American genealogist William Addams Reitwiesner has found that Bowles' great-grandparents from nine generations ago were also ancestors of the two singers. The relevant individuals, all French-Canadians, lived in the seventeenth century.

    Camilla and Madonna are both descended frpm Zacharie Cloutier (1617-1708), while Camilla and Celine descend from Jean Guyon (1619-94) - both of whom died in Chateau-Richer, Quebec.

    French carpenter Zacharie Cloutier settled in New France, Quebec, in 1634, where he was one of only about 100 in the region.

    The Cloutiers grew to become one of the most influential families in Canada – and are the ancestors of the Queen of Pop, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Franco-Canadian warbler among about 11,000 others.

    How to Turn Terracotta Pots Into Candle Holders

    By: coolboy On: Sunday, March 21, 2010

  • Terracotta pots are used as candle holders. They're well suited for a number of different craft projects. It takes about a minute to transform a terracotta pot into a simple and elegant candle holder. Invest 5 minutes in decorating and you will have a singular, durable work of art.

    Plug the hole in the bottom of the pot with something that won't burn or melt when exposed to burning wax. One quick and cheap way of doing this is to put a quarter, dollar coin or other metal disk over the hole from the inside. It may be necessary to seal the plug in place with a little bit of melted wax from another candle. Keep in mind that if the wax holding it in place melts when the candle burns down, your sealing piece may move.
    Place your chosen candle into the terracotta pot. You may choose to hold it in place with a little melted wax from another candle.
    Decorate your terracotta candle holder on the inside, outside or both. Some easy decorating options include colored sand and decorative stones on the inside or acrylic paint, ribbons and markers on the outside.

    A lit candle is a fire hazard. Always burn your candle on a fireproof surface and never leave it unattended.
    It is vital that you plug the hole in the bottom of your new candle holder. If you don't, hot wax may leak out and start a fire. If you plug the hole with a quarter, monitor it closely when the candle burns down low to make sure it does not shift in the softening wax.
    If the terracotta pot you want to used is not glazed on the inside, you need to seal it yourself to keep it from absorbing melted wax and becoming a fire hazard. One useful product for this is Mod-Podge, available on most craft stores.
    If you don't want to seal the hole with a quarter, you can use a terracotta drip tray or saucer that matches the size of the pot.

  • what is Terracotta?

    Terracotta is a ceramic material that has been used for building construction and decorative arts since ancient times in cultures around the world. Terracotta, which literally means "baked earth," is made from natural clay, which gives it a characteristic reddish-brown color. The color varies slightly depending on the clay used. Terracotta may be glazed for extra durability or to provide color. It is a waterproof and very sturdy material, and many ancient terracotta sculptures are still in excellent shape.

    was widely used in the decorative arts of ancient China, perhaps most famously in the tomb soldiers of 2nd century BCE emperor Qin Shi Huangdi. Terracotta vases and other sculptures are known from ancient Egypt, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, West Africa, and Central and North America. Terracotta pipe was also one of the oldest materials used in plumbing.
    Terracotta remains a popular material in the decorative arts as well, particularly pottery and sculpture. Unglazed, it is ideal for planters, as it is semi-permeable to air and water. It is also amenable to sculpting into rather elaborate designs

    Terracotta pots

    The Terracotta Army is the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shi Huang the First Emperor of china. The Terracotta figures, dating from 210 BC, were discovered in 1974 by some local farmers near XI'an, Shaanxi province, China near the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor. The figures vary in height (183–195 cm - 6 ft–6 ft 5in), according to their role, the tallest being the generals. The figures include warriors, chariots, horses, officials, acrobats, strongmen, and musicians. Current estimates are that in the three pits containing the Terracotta Army there were over 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses, the majority of which are still buried in the pits. Many archeologists believe that there are many pits still waiting to be discovered.

    Expensive dish

    An Indian restaurant in London is celebrating the DVD release of Slumdog Millionaire in its own, special way. It’s called Samundari Khazana—“seafood treasure”—and, at £2,000, it’s the most expensive curry in the world.

    Bombay Brassiere has packed this platter full of the most expensive ingredients they could find. Devon crab and white truffle and a half tomato filled with Beluga caviar and dressed with gold leaf are just the start of this lavish dish. A Scottish lobster, also coated with gold, four abalone and four shelled and hollowed quails’ eggs filled with even more caviar round out the dish.

    Bombay Brassiere’s head chef, Prahlad Hegde, expects to sell the dish despite the recession that makes the £2,000—over US $3,200—price tag seem ludicrous to some. Regardless of its success as a standalone dish, the hype surrounding the world’s most expensive curry will undoubtedly bring some new faces to the Brassiere.

  • Perry Watkins from UK, created this Flatmobile and it has entered the Guinness Records for being the lowest car in the world
    The Flatmobile stands at just 19 inches off the floor and has a ground clearance of 2 inches.
    This crazy car was constructed from a 1963 Hillman Imp and is based on the original Batmobile from the 1960s American television series, Batman.

    It still uses the original Hillman Imp 875 Sport engine but Perry has added a home built gas turbine to give it extra power.
    This custom car is completely road legal in the day but is not allowed on the roads at night due to the headlights not being at the road regulations height.
