Christmas in Cayman

100% caffeine free

Who says you can’t have a taste of Christmas all year round? Swirling with cinnamon and spice, this therapeutic herbal tea is based on a classic, Ayurvedic formula to promote longevity, stamina, balance and circulation. Perfect for the holidays when everything gets a little crazy! Cinnamon bark may help improve insulin resistance and make the cells of the body absorb glucose more easily. It has been said that cinnamon can lower blood sugar levels and slow digestion, which further reduces blood sugar after eating. The Madagascar cinnamon used in this blend is one of the best grades in the world, and is sweeter and more flavourful than common cinnamon.

Ingredients: cinnamon bark, hawthorn petals, ginger, clove, black pepper, cardamom

Origin: China. 50g makes: 50 cups (based on 3g per 8oz of water, infused 3 times).

Temperature: 212 degrees F, Infusing time: 3-5 minutes

These amazing holiday inspired lattes can be found at Bay Market, in Camana Bay. Drink up the joy of Christmas and enjoy!

Matcha Green Tea Shortbread Cookies

 

Ingredients:
3/4 (2.25 oz.) cup confectioner’s sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of Tea Time in Cayman’s Super Zen 

10 teaspoons (5 oz.) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 3/4 cups (8.5 oz.) flour
3 large egg yolks
1 cup granulated sugar (to coat the dough)

Preparation:

1. Whisk the confectioner’s sugar and Super Zen together.
2. Beat the butter and Super Zen sugar mixture together in a stand mixer (use paddle attachment) until the butter is smooth and light.
3. Add the flour and stir until just combined.
4. Mix in the egg yolks until they are incorporated and the dough comes together. Gather the dough into a ball and flatten it into a thick disc. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until it is firm.
5. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to about 1/2-inch thickness. Use a small cookie cutter (about 2-inches) to cut shapes from the dough.
6. Roll the cut shapes in granulated sugar and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

*This recipe makes about 5 dozen 1-inch cookies (about 3 dozen 2-inch cookies). Store in airtight container away from sunlight as the color will fade with exposure to sun.
