Asian Tea Houses/Places in Westchester?

I have ordered Darjeeling tea from them.
They have an excellent selection of Darjeeling-the owner is very nice and knowledgeable-
you might enjoy her teas.

What's for Dinner? #346 - The Deep Freeze Edition!

does anyone else use an aerogarden for growing herbs?
I start some of my seeds in the pods and then transplant the seedlings to containers for my balcony. I particularly enjoy growing different types of basil and have had good success.

What's for Dinner? #346 - The Deep Freeze Edition!

It was chilly(by Florida standards) down here in Broward County-
55 degrees at 7 a.m.

tonight, I am making roast turkey breast with homemade cranberry sauce, baked sweet potato, cucumber salad and kidney bean salad.

I am enjoying making my list of herb seeds and container plants.
I also started my newest set of herbs in my aerogarden.

My son was happy that Northern New Jersey did not receive the predicted snowfall amounts. He got the day off and was able to catch up on household chores including preparing dinners for the week.

I also followed egullet.org, mouthfulsfood.com and off the broiler.com
They all seem to have dropped off from years gone bye.
The quality has not been the same.
I have not followed NJ board that much since moving to Florida 6 years ago.

I miss the discussions and recommendations-
I followed NJ site for years-
now my local board is Miami-Ft.Lauderdale where there are a few active posters but they have businesses which they indirectly promote.

Hot milky coconut tea (black tea) recipes

this is a response from a poster


Black Milk, or Milky Black, or Black Milky...just means the type of flavoring on top of the "bubbles" or tapioca.

First, you need the bubbles for the tea....which you can get in kits, or buy on their own. Usually you need to boil these yourself, but lately I've seen them precooked. These are widely available at Asian groceries out here in the Seattle area (have seen them at Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, and Chinese stores)."

"Black Milky" Tea just means they use a black tea mixed with milk or half 'n half or almond/soy milk. Usually the teas come as syrups at these places (I know, not so great), but sometimes it is just a strongly brewed, usually sweetened, iced tea. "Coconut" might mean they use coconut cream instead of milk, but I would suspect it is just a flavored syrup (like the ones used in coffee or Italian sodas).
