Granola everything

Ever since an American friend of mine introduced me to granola I could not free myself from it. It's not easily accesible here in Norway so I'm always on the lookout for it when abroad.

Both Costa and Starbuck sell granola bars and after tasting both, there is no doubt as to which is best!

Iced Green Tea

Here at Lady Mju's we have started a new project - dive into the cupboards month.

First off was the green tea. It's been in our cupboard for a long while - or maybe ages. Luckily it was stored in a proper tea box and didn't loose too much of the original jasmine flavour. This was also the first time I cold brewed tea. In fact I learned it was possible to prepare tea in this manner only yesterday, after some browsing and reading up on the topic of iced tea.

The result proved pleasant and the beverage didn't turn too cloudy, which supposedly is a plus in the eyes of iced tea connoisseurs.

Recommended on a warm August day like this one!
