🇮🇹 In questa fantastica (per me) giornata, sempre così speciale, aka iL MIO COMPLEANNO 🎂 - colgo l’occasione per fare un meraviglioso annuncio: MI TRASFERISCO!
Stavolta non di pochi km, non di un’ora in auto, non cambio provincia o regione... Un nuovo continente 🤪
Ho raccolto un po’ di tempo e coraggio (che per stare dal lato opposto all’apparecchio che uso quotidianamente ce ne vuole) e riassunto otto anni in questi nove minuti di imbarazzo, impegno ed amicizia!
Non faccio altri spoiler perché il resto è proprio nel video in bio/nelle storie 😝 | 🇬🇧 On this day, always so special for us, which is OUR BIRTHDAY 🎂, I’m taking the opportunity to make a wonderful announcement: I’M MOVING TO A NEW CONTINENT!
I collected a little time and courage (to be on the opposite side of the device that I use every day… takes time) and summarized eight years in these nine minutes of embarrassment, commitment and friendship!
I won’t spoiler more because the rest is right in the video! Link in bio/in the stories 😝 #birthday #birthdaygirl #youtubeitalia #youtubevideos #muccitas

🇬🇧 One of the things I love the most when it’s cold outside: candles. I use them in summer too, but let’s be real - how beautiful is when you are sitting in front of your window, hugged by a warm throw blanket, drinking your favorite tea, with all these @myjoliecandle scented candles around you? | 🇮🇹 Una delle cose che amo di più quando fuori inizia a fare freddo: le candele. Le accendo anche d’estate ovviamente, ma non prendiamoci in giro - quanto è bello quando sei seduta di fronte alla finestra, fuori è grigio, magari piove, la tua copertina ti scalda, stai bevendo il tuo tè preferito e le candele di @myjoliecandle.it avvolgono la stanza con i loro magici profumi? (Tra l’altro, questa è  gusto marshmallow! Decisamente nel mio stile 🥰 e una volta finita, troverò un dolcissimo gioiellino Swarovski!) | #myjolie #myjoliecandle #myjoliecandleit #myjoliexmas #octolyfamily

🇬🇧 One month ago I travelled to Germany with @federicadinardo_ to explore and discover more about the Bauhaus architecture movement. We travelled in different cities across the country, but the place that impressed me the most was this hidden gem in Weimar: the Anna Amalia Herzogin Bibliothek, Unesco world heritage site. This place burned out in 2004, it’s been reconstructed preserving the original design. Because of its fragility, was not easy to get into. They sell only 50 tickets per day! (That’s why we had to go there twice 😅) This explains also my stylish slippers :P How gorgeous are these colours? 💛 | 🇮🇹 Di recente sono stata in Germania con @federicadinardo_ per esplorare e scoprire di più sul movimento architettonico del Bauhaus in onore del suo 150° anniversario. Abbiamo viaggiato in diverse città e visitato molti posti singolari, ma il posto che mi ha colpita di più è stata questa perla a Weimar: la Anna Amalia Herzogin Bibliothek, patrimonio mondiale dell'UNESCO. Questo magico posto è andato in fiamme nel 2004, dopodiché è stato ricostruito preservando il design originale. A causa della sua fragilità, non è decisamente stato facile entrare. Per l’entrata sono disponibili solo 50 biglietti al giorno! (infatti siamo tornate due volte 😅) Questo spiega anche le mie eleganti e stilosissime pantofole :P Quanto sono belli questi colori? 💛 | #CelebratingBauhaus #germanytourism #Bauhaus100 #weimar #germany

🇬🇧 When I was a child I was always afraid of falling and breaking bones. To fight this fear, I even started snowboarding. End of story: I broke a foot running upstairs once - with my camera. I stopped everything apart my photography job, and in different situations I was scared of myself, I wasn’t “sure” even just walking on a normal straight street.
Don’t know how this happened but I went surfing for my first time and loved it more than anything else. I forgot everything. All my fears were gone with waves. I never felt so alive. And happy.
Today I wish you to find something that helps you to forget your fears! 🦋 | 🇮🇹 Quando ero piccola avevo sempre paura di cadere e rompermi qualcosa. Per combatterla, avevo persino iniziato a fare snowboard. Morale della storia: un giorno mi sono rotta un piede correndo sulle scale - con la mia macchina fotografica. Ho smesso di fare tutto, tranne la fotografia, e in diverse situazioni avevo paura di me stessa, non mi sentivo "sicura" nemmeno camminando su una semplicissima strada dritta.
Non so come sia successo, ma sono finita a fare surf per la prima volta in vita mia e l’ho amato più di ogni altra cosa. Ho dimenticato ogni cosa. Tutte le mie paure erano sparite con le onde. Non mi sono mai sentito così vivo. E felice. Oggi ti auguro di trovare qualcosa che ti aiuti a dimenticare le tue paure come è successo a me! 🦋 | #visitaustralia #goldcoast #visitgoldcoast #thisisqueensland #visitqueensland #queensland

How to Prepare Matcha Tea & Matcha Latte

Rich with beneficial properties, matcha tea is prepared following an ancient Japanese ritual using special tools, from the cup to the wooden whisk. Let’s find out how to do it!

I’ve been experimenting with teas lately and wanted to give a try to the matcha tea: it gives you an energy boost without the crash you often experience after a strong cup of coffee. The latte version, which is easily called matcha latte, is a surprisingly perfect marriage of tea and creamy milk; when lightly sweetened, it is truly a treat. I recently found a great organic matcha, and I’ve been making lattes with it almost every day. You’ll notice the high price point on this tea– the best matcha, known as “ceremonial grade,” is quite expensive. If you have the means to buy it, it’s worth the spend, especially if you enjoy matcha tea on its own (meaning, plain matcha tea– not the latte form). However, there are also some less expensive “culinary grade” matcha alternatives out there that are pretty good. Here is one I’d recommend; for mixing into lattes and baked goods, it does the trick.

How to make classic Matcha Tea

To prepare a perfect matcha tea it is important to have excellent ingredients of course, and some specific equipment.
First, you need a teacup called chawan, that must be warm and dry. True matcha tea should never be drunk in a mug.
Instead of a classic metal spoon, you should use a chashaku, a sort of scoop used to measure the amount of tea. For a light matcha, usucha, 1 or 2 teaspoons of powder are enough, while for a stronger one, koicha, up to three.
The water poured into the cup must be hot at maximum 80 degrees, and must be mixed quickly with the powder eliminating all the lumps. To do this, we use a very small wooden whisk, the chasen, which lets the air come in, making the layer on the surface of the tea slightly frothy. The movement to mix powder and liquid is not circular: we must draw a sort of W.
Sugar or other sweeteners should not be added. Matcha tea should be tasted hot and natural!
Also don’t forget to clean your chasen before and after use, with 80 degrees water.

Japanese-Inspired latte with a healthy green matcha tea base, lightly sweetened with dairy or non-dairy milk.

Course: Drinks
Cuisine: Japanese
Keyword: 5 Minute, Japanese, Matcha Latte, Matcha Tea, Tea
Servings: 1 cup
Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp matcha powder (when using ceremonial grade, you may need less - adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 cup whole milk (or preferred non-dairy milk)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (or a few drops of stevia)
Instructions
  1. Pour the matcha powder into the mug along with 1/4 cup of hot water, 60-75°C.

  2. Let the tea "bloom" for 1-2 minutes, whisking rapidly to break up any small pieces. For this, you can use a wooden matcha whisk or a small metal whisk (a matcha whisk works best).

  3. If you have an automatic milk frother, add the milk to the frother, heat, and froth the milk, pour it into the bloomed matcha and sweeten to taste.

  4. If you do not have a frother, add bloomed matcha to a small saucepan with the milk and sugar or sweetener. Heat until mixture bubbles around the edges, whisking constantly.

  5. If you prefer a frothy latte, use an immersion blender to carefully whip up some foam after it's done heating.

  6. Pour into a large mug, serve and enjoy! This type of latte tastes best lightly sweetened.
