Tea for Three

October is over, but as I was putting together the Frankenberry S’mores yesterday, I thought they were the perfect color for Breast Cancer Awareness treats.

So I molded them into some sprayed muffin tins…

…to create little pink balls – complete with chocolate nipples!

For my favorite pair of boobs, of course!

Met up with Jenny and Taryn for tea today at Hwa Sun Ji in Koreatown, and wanted to celebrate the success of the “Touch Your Boobies” video (which has gone viral on YouTube!!!)

Once you walk past the parking lot (free!) a charming oasis awaits.

I’m STILL feeling full from Malo, so I went with a cup of Ginger, to aid digestion (and prevent baldness)

I think they used sugar in there? Forgot to ask.

Also ordered a Traditional Mix of Korean sweets to share

You can read all about these on Sophia’s blog, which is actually how I found out about this place!

I tried at least one of each, but ate a few more of the persimmon rolls…

…also a number of these seaweed biscuits

The above were complimentary, as was the barley tea that came at the end of the meal. I actually preferred this one to the sweet ginger, and wound up drinking two cups!

I LOVE the boobies! We made a boob cake for our brother-in-law complete with chocolate nipples! Fun to make and fun to watch others eat!

I LOVE hwa sun ji! It’s a post-KoreanBBQ tradition since Tahoe is just around the corner. They have super legit green tea ice cream with a very strong matcha flavor. :)
