Tips for Tea - Tea Popsicles
Chilled tea helps to get refreshed during hot summer days. But hey you can be even more creative and make a tea popsicle! Let's try sakura tea & strawberry. You will need: a cup of sakura tea, 5 Strawberries and honey or sugar.
1. Rinse sakura petals from the preserving salt in warm water for about 5min. Remove the salty water and pour hot water on sakura petals. Leave it for about a minute.
2. Put strawberries, honey/sugar and sakura tea into a blender and mix it well.
3. Before freezing cut some fresh strawberries and put them into the blended mix - it will make the bite more fruity.
4. Freeze in the popsicle shapes for about 2 hours and here you go your own delicious popsicle!
A big thank you to Kim, previous Obubu intern, for a beautiful recipe. Get more inspiration here.

Meet Obubu's Friends - David and Sebastien

Who are you and what do you do? David: Hi, my name is David Tristan. I’m a traveler, philanthropy, tea ceremony enthusiast, writer, artist, designer, creative director and a founder of the Creepy Design.
How did you get to know Obubu? Sebastien: We had a meeting with Mr.David in a Japanese Garden in London and he explained to me and he showed me what is the way he wants to move forward in the future. He shared with me a part of he’s plans which includes a huge amount Japanese Minimalism and Taoist philosophy. After I asked him if he has any experience about this beautiful culture he told me that part of he’s meditation he is a practitioner of the Japanese Tea Ceremony on the modern way of course. So I took a chance to search for more information about this and let’s see what I can find. That’s how I found Obubu.
What is Obubu to you? David: I believe that this family has just found a right way to connect with the outside world with other countries and other cultures. I think it is special because you have to be interested about tea, Japan, health etc. to find them. I am honoured to be a part of the Obubu tea club and do appreciate the meaning and the importance of their message.
What is your favourite way to make tea? David: Peaceful silence with the beauty of simplicity. (Tea Ceremony)
What message would you like to pass to Obubu readers and friends? David: "When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful." -- BM
