Hey, guys! I've got thinking that I'd like to do a little recipe that I interpreted from one of my favorite Miyazaki Films, Ponyo. If you've seen the film, you'll know that there is a hot drink that Ponyo drinks with Sosuke and his mother in one of the scenes. Within the film itself, you can practically feel the warm and fuzzyness that the drink bestows upon the characters. Here is the recipe to try for yourself!
Ponyo's Hot Tea Milk and Honey Recipe:
4 oz. Water
1 teabag of your tea of choice (Different flavors of tea can give it a different taste, I use green.)
4 oz. Milk
1 large spoonful of honey (or to taste, I like mine sweet.)
Bring water to a boil in a small sauce pan then pour it into a mug. Place the teabag into the water and let seep to a desirable potency. In the mean time, heat up your milk in the same saucepan until warm. Pour your milk in the mug with the tea. Fill a spoon up with honey and stir it in the drink.
Oishi! This is really good! It's perfect for cold days, bedtime, and for those with a cold. Enjoy! More Japanese recipes to come!
