Chai Tea Iced Cube Latte
This weekend, my friend had a 'Cube Latte' which is dutch coffee ice cubes with milk poured over it. The milk melts the coffee so that it becomes a prefect cafe latte! So I did some digging and found the chai latte version (because who doesn't love chai lattes) and wanted to share it with all of you! Makes about 2 cups (gluten-free, easily made vegan) 2 1/2 cups water 1 whole star anise 1 whole cinnamon stick 3-4 whole cloves 4-5 whole black peppercorns 4-5 cardamom pods, cracked 2-3 thin shavings of fresh ginger root 1/4 cup + 2 TBSP turbinado sugar (light brown sugar) 3-4 TBSP loose leaf black tea (or 4-5 tea bags) For serving: 4-5 cups whole milk (or your favorite vegan alternative – coconut would be nice!) Method 1. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, whole spices, and sugar. Bring to a boil, then cover and remove from the heat. Let steep anywhere from 5-15 minutes, depending on how strong you like the spices to be. 2. Return to the heat and bring to a boil. Add the tea, remove from the heat, and let steep for another 5-7 minutes. 3. Strain out the tea and spices. If you’d like to make a regular batch of chai, add the milk and serve immediately. To make the chai iced tea cubes, let the mixture cool, then pour into an ice-cube tray and freeze. 4. To make an iced chai latte, add 2-3 ice cubes to a glass of milk (about 1/4 cup of milk per cube). The tea will get stronger the longer it sits and the more the ice cubes melt. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon, and enjoy!
A Glimpse into The Pneumatic Tire Industry of Sri Lanka
Photo byThomas MillotonUnsplash Pneumatic tires are an innovative approach to all types of tires and a blessing in disguise to the automobile industry. With its ability to absorb shock, deflect and provide the perfect balance, these have revolutionised a complete industry. What Are They? Bob Adamsfrom Amanzimtoti, South Africa,Bell BW24RH Pneumatic Tyred Roller (15138216031),CC BY-SA 2.0 With an ability to use on both indoor and outdoor devices, pneumatic tires are most often used on bicycles and wheelbarrows. While there are two types to select from, air tires are recommended for outdoor use, due to their ability to travel on rough surfaces like gravel roads, resulting from their foundation filled with air. The solid type built with 100% rubber is puncture-proof but lacks a smooth ride. However, pneumatic tires have gained recognition as tires that carry the ability to handle several surfaces, ranging from rocky roads to smooth paths. The Global Market Image byPexelsfromPixabay While manufacturing giants like Japan, Korea and India are known to export and dominate the pneumatic tire industry in the global market, Sri Lanka too has garnered attention in this arena. With agro tires, material handling tires along with many other types, the pneumatic tire industry in the country exports to countries like the USA, Canada, Mexico and Germany.

The Benefits Photo byJaye HaychonUnsplash Carrying a crate of benefits, the choice of pneumatic tires can make a difference in your devices. With the ability to absorb shock and carry valuable cargo, these are an ideal pick for those expensive items that need transportation. Other benefits include the reduction of noise pollution and the ability to travel through delicate indoor surfaces as well as rough outdoor roads.
So Good Or No Good: Kimchi Soda - Are You Down?
Welcome to another week of the Funny Community game - "SO GOOD OR NO GOOD"! At the beginning of every week, I post to ask your opinion on weird food combinations that people either strongly love or strongly hate, and then share the full community results! Last week, I asked you how you felt about Tabasco sauce! Out of the 57 users who voted either way, Tabasco was decided to be 'SO GOOD' by 44 voters. That means Tabasco sauce is SO GOOD!!!! This week I want to know: Would you try kimchi soda? For those unfamiliar, kimchi is spicy Korean cabbage that undergoes fermentation, giving it a distinct sour flavor. And Japanese soft drink company Ramune was just like "Hey, let's make this kimchi stuff into a soda!" But would you be brave enough to try kimchi soda yourself? Is Ramune's kimchi soda SO GOOD or NO GOOD? Let me know in the comments below!
