This past weekend, I went with my parents to a Taiwanese store called Monja. They are famous for red grain pork. Continue reading


More 85°C Tea

I tried another flavor other than Jasmine today. It actually tastes pretty good. It reminds me of Tenju’s Mountain Green Tea sample. I feel like 85°C makes Mountain Green Tea better than their Jasmine Green Tea. I don’t mind the taste of Mountain Green Tea, but I crave Jasmine Green Tea more. @_@

This insect is telling me to lower my caffeine intake. Thank you… I’ve been drinking a lot of tea to stay awake to study lately… I didn’t want to waste this tea that’s been sitting there, but the insect helped me out.

(It’s still alive by the way.)

I knew I saw something move around my room for the past day… I thought it was a spider or I was seeing things…

Tenju Tea House

I ordered Cream-Topped Green Tea (left) and Jasmine Green Tea (right). The Cream-Topped Green Tea is my favorite in this shop! There is a bit of sea salt in the cream to give it a bit of a salty taste. It is pretty unique to drink salty cream with refreshing green tea. They even give instructions on how to drink it and it does make a difference. They say that when you first drink it, take off the lid and drink from the cup. That’s how you can drink both the cream and the green tea at the same time. (I personally don’t recommend mixing the cream and tea with a straw to make the liquid murky, but it is up to personal taste.) It is their 2nd most popular drink! The first one is Monk’s Blend. (Monk’s Blend is a bit sour, if I remember correctly. I don’t really like it as much. Because I rarely order it, I forgot what was in the drink…)

Ajisen Ramen

Temporarily ignoring the main dish, the drink I ordered is called Honey Aloe Green Tea. This is my go-to place for this drink because my favorite tea place for this drink closed down many years ago.

The ramen I ordered is called Ajisen Ramen. Yes, it is also their shop name. I want to call it their house special~ I don’t remember when was the last time I came here to eat this. I missed the soup.

When I first tried their Ajisen Ramen, I didn’t like it. I remember complaining to my sister that the noodles tasted like spaghetti… I don’t dislike spaghetti, but I wanted my ramen noodles to taste like ramen noodles.

Then around 2014, I started to appreciate the taste more. It no longer tasted like spaghetti. When I got over that, I started to crave for their special soup.

Now when I want ramen, I do consider coming to this shop if I want their soup. I still prefer the thicker noodles, but this isn’t bad at all.
