South African's love their tea! They serve black tea with warm milk and sugar. When I first went there 12 years ago, I hated it. By the end of our two week stay, I was hooked. I loved the teas so much; when I got home I purchased a Mrs. Tea machine so I could brew the perfect cup of tea. I now have a cup of this delicious tea almost every morning.
I love the yogurt! It has double the cream of our yogurt here in the good old USA. The consistency is thick and creamy, almost like a custard. Is is also filled with big chunks of juicy fruit. I started almost everyday with yogurt topped with Muesli Crunch and a mince cup of tea.
Grapetiser, oh how I love thee! There are white and red Grapetisers. They also make Appletiser and Peartisers. I love them all! They are a carbonated fruit drink. Light and refreshing. A great alternative to soda pop.
Melktart or as we call it Milk Tart, is the dessert of South Africa. My husband loves this dessert! It has a custard like filling with a sweet crust. On Friday, I will be posting the recipe.
Our friends in South Africa love Biltong. It seemed like everywhere we went, people were asking if we had tried it. Biltong is a dried jerky kind of product. It is lightly spiced and has a high fat content. I did not like it. It was too fatty for me. But if you visit South Africa give it a try.
