Azusa Tea Club (3/5/2011) - Leicha Experience

Karen and Ben, two participants of the World Youth Hakka Summer Camp in Taiwan last July, held a session in Leicha making this past weekend. I thought it would be a great idea to let Karen lead this tea event for our Azusa Tea Club. During which we all had the chance to hand grind the tea and ingredients by ourselves. I believe that both Karen and Ben did a great job. After we all had a chance to enjoy or self-made Leicha, Josephine led a short sharing session. So…what’s next?
Here is the ingredient list that we used to make the Leicha per Karen's suggestion:
- Cilantro (Fresh)
- Peanuts (Dry roasted and unsalted)
- Almonds (Raw and unsalted)
- Black Sesame (Whole)
- White Sesame (Whole)
- Black Sugar (In powdered form)
- Genmai Cha (6 Teaspoons)
- Matcha Powder (1 Teaspoon)
- Rice Krispies (Used to top off our drinks, when enjoying the final
product of Leicha)
