Day 1 – Bali Blue Moon (Cold Brew)

coffee review bali blue moon

Highlights: This coffee is for anyone who wants a wake-up call each morning. The strong taste really packs a punch at first, but after taking a few more sips, my body is more awake and it becomes a really smooth drink. This coffee would go great with some sweet bread.

PRO TIP:  Add a bit of milk if it’s too strong of a taste for you, paired with some sugar for a delicious drink.

Cold Brew Quick Tip Preparation: 

Instructions
  1. Grind our Teasia Single Origin Coffee Beans into a coarse grind.
  2. Combine the ground coffee and water in the jar.
  3. Mix well together.
  4. Steep the coffee overnight in the fridge. (This works best so you have something ready in the AM when you really need it.)
  5. Strain the coffee liquid. The best way for straining is to use cheese cloth
  6. Pour extra cold brew to a new jar for storage OR share with coworkers.
  7. Enjoy right away OR add ice for some iced coffee.

Ingredients:
Vegetable oil spray
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of Uganda Bugisu (brewed)
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. To make the cake: Place the cup of brewed Uganda Bugisu coffee, butter, and cocoa in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl. Heat, stirring, until the butter melts. Remove from the heat, and whisk until smooth. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.
  3. While the chocolate is cooling, put the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking to combine.
  4. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and mix again to incorporate any residue.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, eggs, and heavy cream. Mix into the chocolate batter, stirring until thoroughly combined.
  6. Thoroughly grease a 10- to 12-cup Bundt pan, preferably non-stick. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes, until a long toothpick or skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Note: a pan with a dark interior will bake the cake more quickly; start checking at about 40 minutes.
  7. Remove the cake from the oven, wait 5 minutes, and turn the pan over onto a cooling rack. After 5 more minutes, lift the pan off the cake. Let the cake cool completely before icing.
  8. To make the icing: Combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over medium heat. Heat until the cream starts to bubble around the edges.
  9. Remove from the heat, and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Spoon the icing over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.
  10. Store any leftover cake at room temperature, well wrapped, for several days. Freeze for longer storage.

PRO TIP:  To intensify the chocolate flavor of this cake and cut down on the sweetness level, try a stronger brew of Teasia Coffee .

STRONG:  Teasia Rwanda Coffee

SWEET: Teasia Tanzania Peaberry Coffee

Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 1

RoseBlackHey guys I’m Paulina!  I’m a recent college graduate trying to find my way in the workforce while balancing my social/ family life along the way. I’m a very busy person so any chance I’m able to take some ‘me time’ I do. I like going on long jogs, hiking, reading, Netflix (binge-watching), crafting and above all staying physically and mentally healthy.

I’ve recently started being more attentive to the things a put in my body as well as to the things I’m not. Teas are a great and delicious way to give my body a boost without adding harsh chemicals nor unnecessary sugars I don’t need. Not to mention they all have health benefits as well as most have antioxidants. What I love most about Teasia Teas specifically are the wide range of flavors offered, sure to meet and exceed anyone’s taste buds!

Day 1: Rose Black Tea

Flavor Highlights: I like this tea with a splash of milk to balance with the bitterness of it. This tea is a fun option for when you’re wanting to get creative in the kitchen.  It is a great drink to serve cold, blended, and even used for a cocktail.

This tea also pairs great with a spicy snack. This is a definite romantic drink with different personalities depending on how it is worked into a drink, which is something we can’t say about many teas.

Let me know in the comments below on your favorite way of drinking rose black tea. If you haven’t tried it yet, I definitely recommend it. Since it’s the summer, add a few ice cubes in it and enjoy.

Stay tuned for the next tea I’m trying!
