First Taste – Ting

This is documentation of the first taste of the Jamaican drink, Ting. Tasting a “pink” flavoured version of a drink that I cherished as child, forces a connection between childhood memories of the past and new experiences in the present. The original flavour’s taste recalls a time when I longed to be older, while the pink flavour’s taste becomes associated with a time in which I dread entering into adulthood.

Sha Qi Ma, or soft flour cakes is a Chinese snack equivalent to rice cake in Canada. It is originally from the Manchu population which lives in northeastern China, but is now popular across China. The version I brought to class is a Fujian variance which is a little different from the Manchu version with the addition of sesame and eggs. You can get this in almost every Chinese market in the GTA area.
