Hello, busy-bees! The weather in my hometown has been crazy lately. It’s raining all day, and even when the rain stops, the sky remains cloudy. Down with a terrible flu for 3 days now, this afternoon I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and head to the kitchen instead. I’d like to make something simple and warm: like this home-made ginger tea.

GingerTea-1

Ingredients:

  • 2 fresh gingers, grated (or you can use more if you’d like it stronger)
  • 2 teaspoons of green tea (you can replace this with other kinds of tea like jasmine, or if you’re lazy, a teabag will do)
  • 4 cups of boiling water

Put your grated gingers and green tea into the teapot, and then pour the boiling water. Leave it for a while, then pour it into a cup. Add a tablespoon of honey or sugar if you’d like to have a trace of sweetness there. You can also add a slice of lemon to enrich the taste (I like to have it with honey only).Β It’s a very simple recipe and extremely easy to make, but it gives you such a lovely extra warmth on rainy days.

For the time being, stay healthy!

  1. It’s been raining here in Portland, Oregon too. I have a cold and just saw this in my reader. I actually have ginger in my fridge and will try this as it sounds delicious πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    1. Really! Wow, it’s funny to think of this rain as a “universal rain” (it’s raining again now as I typed this). I have no idea why I said such a strange thing πŸ˜€ am gonna blame it on the flu! πŸ˜€ Enjoy your own cup of ginger tea! πŸ™‚ *cheers*

    1. aaaah! yes, gula jawa! I didn’t think about it before, but yeah, I guess it would give such a unique added flavor! will try one with gula jawa today! πŸ˜€

  2. yang aku temukan, teh itu nikmat saat dinikmati di saat yang tepat, tetapi ini ada penemuan kalau teh bisa lebih nikmat jika dipadukan dengan rasa yang lain πŸ™‚

If you made it this, far, please say 'hi'. It really means a lot to me! :)

Beradadisini Love Letter to Self
I took up a personal journaling project this week: writing a love letter to myself before bed. I work on a thin A6-size handmade paper journal I got from a paper artist, Els. The journal is thin and small enough, so it doesn't overwhelm me. It feels like I am only going to work on a small project.

Standing up for yourself does not have to look aggressive. It does not have to feel like a fight. It's not always about convincing others or explaining yourself and your decisions with the hope that everyone else understands or accepts your choice.

Hi. I'm HANNY
I am an Indonesian writer/artist/illustrator and stationery web shop owner (Cafe Analog) based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I love facilitating writing/creative workshops and retreats, especially when they are tied to self-exploration and self-expression. In Indonesian, 'beradadisini' means being here. So, here I am, documenting lifeβ€”one word at a time.
