milk oolong tea

✨ Chai spells ✨

Now that it’s getting colder I feel like it’s time to post about chai spells! 

✨  Basic recipe for chai  ✨
- ¾ mug of milk (or milk alternative)
- ¼ mug of water
- Any tea that goes with milk (so no green or fruit teas)
- Sugar or honey to taste

Heat up your milk, water and sweetener, once boiling whisk in your tea. If using black or milk oolong tea then do not exceed 45 seconds of stirring - it seems like a small amount of time but your chai will be bitter if you go over this time! Any tea other than black tea would be alright for a bit longer, but you shouldn’t need much time at all! 

Pour the chai through a strainer and serve! Drink this while hot for the best flavour (though it doesn’t taste bad if it gets cold either)

For the following spells, use the milk, water and sweetner and then add the tea specified! Feel free to personalise your blends!

This week we made BOBA MILK TEA (Tapioca Milk Tea, Bubble Tea, Milk Tea with Pearls)!

Random Snapchat Adventures w/BTS #3

     You lied on the hotel bed, stomach down as you kicked your feet around. Namjoon and Yoongi was sharing the sofa across the room as the three of you waited for the rest of the boys to come back from whatever late night adventure they decided to do. 

     “The jet lag is real,” you said, rubbing your eyes but not really feeling the need to sleep even if it’s near midnight already.

     “You’re the one to talk,” Namjoon scoffed, glancing over at Yoongi. “This boy over here is wide awake and he’s always sleeping.”

     “Yaaaah, it’s not faaaaair,” Yoongi grumbled and fell backwards into the seat of the couch. “I want to sleep but I can’t.”

     Flipping over onto your back, you stared up at the white ceiling of the hotel room. A second later, you focused your attention back to the boys at the couch. “You guys wanna go somewhere?” 

     “Where?” Namjoon replied right as Yoongi deadpanned a “no.”

     You shrugged. “I dunno. Wanna go get boba?”

     Yoongi rolled his eyes. “At this hour? Are any stores even open?”

     Grabbing your phone next to you, you quickly searched up a place. 

     “Oh woah, yeah,” you marvelled. “It’s a little cafe that’s open 24 hours. It’s only two blocks from here.”

     “You wanna go?” asked Namjoon, looking up from the book he was reading.

     “Yeah sure.”

     “Buy me a oolong milk tea with black pearls please,” Yoongi immediately ordered.

     You smiled and rolled off the bed. “Yeah sure.”

     Namjoon walked towards the door and pulled it open, waiting for you to grab your jacket. “See you later Suga.”

     “Bye,” the addressed bid. “Oh, and no ice please because I might be asleep by then.”

     “Yeah yeah of course.”

     Closing the door behind you, Namjoon and you walked down the creepily lit hallway of the hotel.

     Shuddering you passed Namjoon only to walk backwards to see his face. “I hate hotels dude. They’re so creepy.”

     A teasing smile stretched across his face, his dimples showing. “It’s okay, you have me!” 

     You smile and shook your head, the rest of the other boys randomly popping in your mind. 

     Phone whipped out, you took a picture of whatever happened to be in front of you (Namjoon) and quickly texted “we’re getting drinks, anyone want some?” before sending it to them. At the same time, you grinned and teased Namjoon- “dang boy, look at this model status,” showing your phone to him.

     Namjoon smiled in embarrassment but quickly recovered by posing for you. You laughed loudly and the two of you continued out of the hotel for the boba.

I also got my calc 2 midterm back today which I scored 68% on, was totally stressing about that til I realized that it’s an A thanks to the curve. that curve is my favorite thing in the world right now.

Food tips

- replace tortillas for lettuce and make lettuce wraps to cut down on carbs
-make zucchini noodles instead of pasta
- the best time to eat carbs are in the morning because you’ll burn them throughout the day
- ginger will cure basically any nausea, stomach ache, sore throats, nasal congestion, etc. Steep with tea and drink without cream or milk (ginger and milk are gross together)
-if you blend a banana and freeze it, you have an all natural sugar free ice cream
- replace mayo with avocado, it tastes better and is better for you
- replace hamburger buns for Portobello mushrooms, more filling and more nutrients
-use natural sweeteners such as honey or agave nectar. Honey also helps with coughs
-kale, broccoli, spinach, and beans provide calcium for people who don’t like milk (me)
- green tea, oolong tea, and peppermint tea have no caffeine and are great for detoxing
- drinking the suggested amount of water everyday could burn you 70 calories alone

Jambajunkie’s 340-Something Follower Gratitude Giveaway!

Thank you everyone for putting up with this silly and very obsessive blog!  

In gratitude to my followers, and also in celebration of the upcoming holiday season, I’m doing a Wizardess Heart-themed giveaway, involving character-themed rewards!

Prizes.

1. Elias’s Notebook 

“His notebook records everything of all lectures he took before [sic], so it has more detailed information than any textbooks in this academy! His writing is so beautiful that it’s super easy to read for anyone… That’s why everyone in the academy is eager to borrow his notebook like a fortunate treasure!” – MC’s Journal

  • A beautiful leather notebook to store your notes, memories, or dreams. 
  • Navy waterproof Italian leather cover, embossed with quill design. 
  • Cream-colored, lined acid-free paper. Gilded edges. Satin ribbon marker.

2. Luca’s Escape

“You should try drawing sometime.”
“Me?! I couldn’t draw to save my life.”
“Being good or bad has nothing to do with it. Forget all that and just draw.”
-
Luca Orlem, His Sweet n Spicy Special Lesson

  • Not all of us may want to draw, but everyone knows how to color. These coloring books feature intricate, beautiful, intriguing illustrations that bring stress relief and peace of mind when coloring. Just as Luca found that drawing helped whisk him away to another world, let these coloring books do the same for you.
  • “Lost Ocean” and “Enchanted Forest” by Johanna Basford. 
  • 96 pages each, gold foiled covers.  
  • Includes a set of 30 coloring markers.

3. Yukiya’s Embrace

His kiss felt so warm and special that it could have been like magic. He wrapped his arms around me, pulling me tight, and it made me feel so calm. It was a special sort of magic that only Yukiya could use… the magic to make me happy. –Yukiya’s Route, Happy Ending

  • There’s no direct substitute for a warm embrace, but a warm blanket comes very close.  This heated blanket will keep you warm on a cold winter day – or any day when you could use a little extra comfort. 
  • Garnet red, silky plush on one side, Sherpa on the other. 
  • 50” x 60”, 4 heat settings, auto shut-off, machine washable. 
  • Note that this comes with an American plug, so may be best for those in the US.  
  • Blanket has never been used; it was taken out of the box once for this picture, and then immediately put back in.

4. Teatime with Klaus

Klaus whipped together some tea with a swift, practiced technique.
MC: You’re good at that.
Klaus: I like tea. I make it every day.

- Klaus’ Route, Day 6

  • A personal tea set, for a serene start to each morning, or a lovely afternoon interlude. Includes a tea infuser, 2 tea cups and saucers, and two tins of tea.  
  • One tin contains Jambajunkie’s favorite loose-leaf ‘Milk Oolong’ tea. ‘Milk Oolong’ tea does not contain milk, but has a famously sweet, milky fragrance and a silky texture, reminiscent of sweet cream.  
  • The other tin contains a white tea – called, “Emperor’s White.” 
  • You have a choice between EITHER two matching Klaus teacups – black with gold edges – OR a “his and her” teacup pair, with one Klaus teacup and one rose-patterned white teacup, representing MC.

5. Randy’s Sweet Tooth

“Ugh…oww…”
“Ah, just as I thought! It’s Randy!” He was panting and breathing hard, with a grimace, as if he was dying at any minute. [sic] I quickly propped him up. “Randy, Randy! Are you okay?”
“Ugh…*pant*…Are you…MC?” When his unstable eyes caught me finally, he weakly stretched his hand towards me.
“Yes I am! What happened to you? Are you hurt?”
“I…”
“Yes?”
“I’m…”
“What is it?!”
“I’m…hungry…”
“…………Huh?”
“How hungry I am…I’m going to die…I’m too hungry…I need…fooood…”

- Randy’s Route, Day 2

  • A giant box full of sweets.  This box will contain sweets of all kinds, from all over the world.  You’ll tell me the things you don’t like (as well as any allergens), and I’ll fill a big box with literally everything else – cookies, candy, chocolate, Pocky, and anything else interesting and unique that I can find. The sweetest surprise you’ll ever receive.  
  • Not pictured, as the contents will depend on the recipient.

6. Sweets and Bitters from Azusa

[Azusa] reached into his pocket and pulled out a small bottle…He took my hand and pushed the bottle onto my palm. It was filled with small little circles of all assorted colors. Upon closer inspection, they looked like little stars. 

– Klaus Route, Day 2

  • This package pairs sweet and bitter, in a taste of Hinomoto. In addition to a jar filled with konpeito, you’ll also receive a beautiful sake set that comes with two little sake cups.  
  • Best of all, the sake bottle and cups look like tanuki (raccoons)! Even if you don’t enjoy sake, you’ll love your little tanuki family. 
  • Both the sake set and the konpeito are imported from Japan. Konpeito will be sent in their intact original package, rather than loose in the jar.
