Toast to All Women

Pink Guava Iced Tea

With this Pink Guava Iced Tea, I toast and commemorate all the women in the world! It is International Women’s Day today with the Campaign theme, #BalanceforBetter. A balanced world is surely a better world. Let us celebrate women’s achievement and take action for equality. The theme for International Women’s Day by the UN is, “Think Equal, Build Smart, and Innovate for Change” and drink Pink Guava Iced Tea. Cheers !

Woman Power

A woman performs all the duties of a man but a man cannot do all that a woman can do, isn’t that so true?Every woman should be taught to believe in protecting herself on her own and not to depend on a man for her protection. She has the power to protect the world and not just herself. Do you agree?Every woman has the power to turn the direction of the wind on her own, but she doesn’t realise it. There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.

Favourite Fruit Guava

One of my favourite fruits has been the Green guava but here in the south, we get hard and crisp guavas unlike the mushy ones in the north. The joy of sinking your teeth into fresh crispy guava is awesome. When I was a kid my mom used to pick the best from the vendor for me. At that time pink guavas were a rarity but she would somehow choose a pink one especially for me and get it. (She knew I had a weakness for all things pink) Miss u Ma! I may love all things Pink but that doesn’t mean I am soppy!

Pink Guavas

Pink Guava

India presently grows almost 27000 tons of pink guavas and they have flooded the market. Pink Guava has more water content, less Sugarless starch content and Vitamin C and less seed or even seedless. White Guava has more sugar, starch, Vitamin C and more seed. Instead of an apple have a Guava a DAY and avoid the Doctor. This is the only fruit recommended for Diabetic People to take every day. A mocktail made with Pink Guava is refreshing to drink as well as to feast your eyes on the soft colour.

Pink Guava Iced Tea

But I decided to make a Pink Guava Iced tea instead. Make a weak tea decoction and cool it.  This weak tea reminded me of Eleanor Roosevelt comment- “A woman is like a tea bag , you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water,” so try us and you will know.

How to make Pink Guava Iced Tea

For the Pink Guava Iced tea, pour a little tea in a tall glass, fill the glass with ice and pour the juice of the pink guavas and pomegranate pearls on top. Garnish with mint, mango ginger juliennes, lemon and a guava wedge. Guava juice is very tasty and refreshing especially in hot climes where I live.
