I am full Tongan!! And OMG!! No way!! I love 'Otai!! It is the most refreshing drink ever!! Great stuff!! Instead of cream you can substitute it for milk and in my opinion watermeleon is the best version of 'Otai!! You could even crack out the water bicuits or breakfast crackers and just breaking that into the drink adds more dimension!! BEAUTIFUL!!
