The smoky and fragrant taste of Earl Grey is a unique experience that many people can not get enough of. Described as a spicy citrus flavor, Earl Grey is a hard to describe taste that is unforgettable once tasted. Apparently Captain Picard of Star Trek fame will not drink anything else!
Although many people consider Earl Grey as a type of tea, any black tea with bergamot flavor added is in fact Earl Grey. Some manufacturers will even use their lower quality black tea to make Early Grey in the belief that the strong flavor of bergamot will mask the poor taste of the tea. Mostly taken black with maybe a slice of lemon added, Earl Grey is nevertheless one of the most popular of all the flavored teas in the world.
The Origin of Earl Grey Tea
Earl Charles Grey was the Prime Minister of Great Britain in 1830. The story is that while on a diplomatic trip to China, he saved the life of a mandarin. To show his gratitude, the mandarin gifted Earl Grey a special tea, which the Prime Minister took back to England with him. The tea quickly became a favorite in the Earls drawing room, and he asked his personal tea supplier to reproduce the same flavor for him. The new tea became fashionable and eventually spread throughout England and the rest of the world.
It is a good story, but unlikely to contain much truth! Charles Grey never visited China and the Chinese drink very little black tea in any case, which means the true origin of Earl Grey tea is still a mystery.
Bergamot is a citrus tree that is cultivated on the south coast of Italy. Also known as the Princes Pear, the fruit is inedible but the oil extracted from it is used to fragrance perfume as well as tea. The oil was an ingredient of one of the first Eau de Cologne ever made. (It is quite different from the herb called bergamot) The fruit is a cross between lemon, orange and grapefruit, sometimes compared to orange blossom.

Cooking food with a charcoal spit is not just an easy way to get taste-tempting, great looking food, but it is also one of the healthiest forms of cooking. Since there is little oil or grease, if any, introduced into the cooking process, calorie and fat content are drastically reduced.
There are a number of foods that can be cooked this way, and those include poultry, fish, pork, lamb, beef, and even vegetables can be placed in a spit to being out the flavor. However, a whole pig is often the preferred option at large functions, and there are a lot of reasons for this.
Roasting can be compared to baking except that higher temperatures are used for this method. This tends to cook the meat more thoroughly and since it is rotating, more evenly as well.
When deciding to set up a charcoal spit, there are a few things that should be considered. First of all, you have to consider the weather, particularly the direction of the wind and how hard it is blowing. Of course, you can accommodate any weather conditions if you can find suitable shelter.
When planning a party where you will be roasting whatever cut you choose, consider that it is often better to have too much of a good thing than to not have enough to go around. Remember, people with full stomachs are much happier than those who are running on empty. You want your party to be a memorable experience, so make sure that when you put on the feed, you feed real well.
Most parties are planned events, so if you are going to be using a charcoal spit to make your guests happy, make sure to make preparations well in advance. That way you will not disappoint attendees because you could not find the right carcass you had been promising.
If you are going to be roasting a whole pig, lamb, or goat, remember that it takes a long time for them to cook. A whole carcass weighing 125 pounds will take between 5 and 6 hours to reach desired internal temperatures. Don’t wait until just

Every energy drink is not created equally and as a result many people are turning to a sugar free energy drink because of the obvious health benefits and great taste! Each year energy drinks gain more market share in the beverages market as they continue to gain media attention. As a matter of fact, they have gained so much attention that even Pepsi and Coke have developed their own varieties. One of the main concerns that people have is the amount of sugar in these beverages, and the second complaint is taste. The solution is a sugar free energy drink that has great taste without that aftertaste that some other diet drinks have.
The first thing most people think of when they hear of a sugar free energy drink is “Where does the energy come from if there isn’t any sugar”. The problem with sugar in most beverages is that the large amount of sugar is what causes the feeling of “crashing” after consuming the drink. The way sugar free energy drinks give you that extra boost is naturally with vitamin b12. An 8 ounce can has as much energy as the equivalent to a quarter of a vitamin b12 shot that you would receive at the doctor’s office. The most exciting part of getting the energy boost naturally is that since your body needs b12 to create energy in the body and anything the body doesn’t use, it will pass through when you go to the bathroom. However, with every other non sugar free energy drink out there, the body will store the unused sugar as fat which is a major cause of obesity.
The other common complaint about energy drinks is their taste, unfortunately most of those non sugar free energy drinks only have a few flavors and in addition they don’t taste very natural. Because nothing is for everyone, there are many naturally flavored varieties in three different categories. For those who adore the dark cola taste, there are classic Cola, Cherry Cola, and Root Beer flavors. By far, the most popular category contain the Natural Fruits,

Let’s find out. Each flavor of Naked Juice contains no added sugar, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. I like it already! One particular favorite, the green machine is widely known for its weird green color. However, the taste is impeccable! The green machine contains 2 apples, banana, 1/3 kiwi and a hint of pineapple. It’s also packed with 1300 mg of spirulina, a complete protein containing all essential amino acids, and chlorella, another ingredient high in protein and other essential nutrients.

Each bottle of naked juice contains anywhere from 1-4 recommended servings of fruit per day. A 15.2 ounce bottle contains a pound of fruit, and the 32 ounce bottle contains 2 pounds of fruit.
