Fresh Cilantro Tea

May 18, 2015


The feathery, aromatic leaves of the coriander plant are known as cilantro. A popular addition to Latin American, Caribbean and Thai dishes, cilantro provides a cool, refreshing balance to spicy flavors. But did you know cilantro can also be used to make a fragrant and healthful tea?

Although Coriander and Cilantro come from the same plant, their tastes and uses are very different. Cilantro leaves add a refreshing kick to chicken, seafood, rice and citrusy flavors; they also contain substantial amounts of vitamins A, C and K.

Research in recent years suggests that cilantro may also be useful as a detox agent. Evidence that the leaves can filter heavy metal toxins in water and in some laboratory mice has led to cilantro’s use in a variety of detox tea recipes, but  more research needs to be done to understand it’s effectiveness humans.

Would you like to try a Cilantro Tea recipe? Fresh cilantro is sold any time of year, or you can even grow your own on a sunny windowsill. To brew the tea, simply fill an infuser or filter with chopped leaves and steep for 10 minutes.

Common sense precaution: Cilantro may interfere with prescription anticoagulants.

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
