Number 2 of this week's daily feature on 7 must-sees in Muscat is the astoundingly impressive and beautiful Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. If you've come all this way to Arabia, it would be criminal to miss this stunning piece of Arabic architecture, set in a vibrantly floral and peaceful landscaped garden.
My recent fabulous first trip to Japan - where green tea was EVERYWHERE and in everything - got me pondering why exactly green tea is regarded as good for you. Does green tea’s reputation really stand up to all the health hype? So I've looked at some of the most recent scientific papers (so you don't have to!), and summarised it all for you here. And I found out how to make a proper cup of matcha, and I've come up with recipes for Iced Matcha shake, Matcha Latte, and Matcha Affogato, which I've included here too. You're welcome!
