Cupom Pichau is a very popular delicacy from Thailand. It is known as the King’s Cake and is made from rice that is freshly picked from the King’s favourite plant, the Argyreia Variegata. There are many versions of this sweet recipe with slight variations depending on where in Thailand the tea is grown. I particularly love the version made with coconut. If you try this delicious Thai delicacy and have not yet tried it, why not give it a try today?
There are several ways to prepare the King’s Cake. In Bangkok it is usually served in a small cone-shaped container. This is then decorated with black sugar and fresh fruits. The tea leaves are also used in the decorating. I was given a cup of this delightful pichau by my friend in Thailand a few weeks ago and I must say it was even more delicious than I thought it would be.
This delicious tea is normally made using a method called “kue Ong” which literally means through boiling water. There are two types of tea used here: one is green tea and the other is red tea. When these two tea types are combined they form a solution and boiled for about 20 minutes. This tea solution is then filtered, dried out and cut into chunks. These chunks are then prepared and rolled into balls and cooked.
Cupom Pichau is made into cakes or pate. I prefer to eat it plain but if you want to add some flavorings or anything to it I do so! One of my favourites is to add a little sugar (sugar is naturally sweet) and a little bit of cream. Some people like to add raisins or chocolate pieces. I tend to stick to the more natural ingredients.
My mother brought this delightful treat back from Thailand when she moved there two years ago. I had never tasted anything quite like it and thought to myself “This must be the new American tea”! A delicious cup of this is always welcome anytime, anywhere. You can get it at any Asian supermarket, or just head down to your local Asian market to buy some. If you are buying in bulk you will save money.
One of my favourite places where you can buy this delicious beverage is at KFC. My friend works there and on her days off (she usually works during the weekdays) she brings this with her to work. I have never tasted anything quite like it. I would drink it every day if I could!
My husband loves this delicious beverage too. We have been getting it at our local restaurant where we go for dinner now and then. I don’t think we will stop getting it anytime soon. Whenever we go to Singapore we end up getting this at home too. I have even tried to order it online and ordering it in bulk from various places in the USA. Nothing beats having a good cup of piping hot cup of tea in the comfort of your own home.
If you haven’t had it before, you are in for a real treat. If you have had it, you are going to love it. The only thing that could make it better is if you could bottle it and give it as a gift. That way you could share this with friends and family for their own cup of tea! You are truly missing out on a great adventure.
This delicious tea was actually invented in China. It was only later that it ended up in the hands of the English who perfected it. Although the English brought the use of the spices to add more flavor to the tea, the main ingredient has remained the same. This was because the Chinese were already enjoying this wonderful tea and wanted to share it with everyone.
When you sit down with a cup of this delicious tea you will be glad that you are drinking a traditional cup of tea. While this is certainly not an ordinary type of tea, there is definitely something about the exotic taste of the Malaysia grown tea leaves that makes it so special. You are just going to have to try it to see what all of the fuss is about.
You can order this tea at many of the regular chain restaurants but you are really going to get a deal if you look for it online. There are many suppliers online that will ship the Tea for you for a much lower price than you can buy it at a store near you. If you are looking for a really good deal, then try looking online. You are going to be surprised by all of the different varieties that are available. You will certainly be able to find a variety that is perfect for your tastes. It is really easy to find a great cup of Pichau and it is something that you will enjoy drinking on a regular basis.
