Hi guys,

It’s another week and another edition of The Tea Times!
Here are this week’s favourite finds.

Three ingredient Nutella brownie recipe

Nutella brownies, you guys. Do I even need to say anything more?

All you need to make 16 brownies is 3 simple ingredients:

1 1/4 cups of Nutella
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour

Mix it all together and bake at 180°C (360°F) for 15-20 minutes and you’re done!  I haven’t tried these out yet but I’ll be sure to let you know when I do. Let me know if you give in to temptation 🙂

Of Monster’s and Men ‘Beneath the Skin’ 2015 album

On 9 June 2015 Of Monsters and Men launched their second album called ‘Beneath the Skin’. Their 2011 album ‘My head is an animal’ was a thing of exceptional loveliness, and their new album is nothing short of melodic brilliance.

I’ve been listening to it on repeat for days now, and my favourite track so far is called Empire. This series of lyric videos on their Of Monsters and Men on YouTube is a bit eccentric and raw, but I like it. Give it a watch/listen!

This is what a cup of tea looks like around the world

If you know nothing else about me, know this: I love tea more than it’s be reasonable for a person to love a warm beverage. So when a friend sent me this Buzzfeed article about what a cup of tea looks like in 22 different countries, my heart did a little pitter patter. Tea is something that’s been around for centuries and it’s enjoyed in so many different ways by so many different cultures, and there’s a very good reason for why it’s stood the test of time: Tea is just flipping marvelous.

Here are some of my favourite pictures from the article:

Terminator Genisys is now in theatre

I grew up watching Terminator with my dad. I’m not sure how appropriate it was for a 7 year old to be watching something as violently explosive as Terminator, but it was our thing. Nearly two decades later I am still super excited about the Terminator movies, and the latest Terminator Genisys didn’t disappoint.

The film came out in South Africa last week, and so of course I watched it with my dad in 3D in Montecasino’s Il Grande cinema – what an enthralling viewing experience! I must be honest: I hadn’t done much research on the film before hand, because I knew that I’d be watching it regardless. So you can imagine my surprise when I learned that Emilia Clarke (the one and only Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones) had been cast as the badass female lead, Sarah Connor.

If you’re the movie-going type and you’re looking to catch a good one this weekend, Terminator Genisys should be at the top of your viewing list!
