  • The Iron Goddess

    The Iron Goddess

    It’s that time of year when Michiganders are blessed with a week of unseasonably warm weather that fills us with false hope that springtime is right around the corner. Sure, it will be 52 degrees on Wednesday, but realistically we still have about two months of cold temperatures and snow left. But, that doesn’t deter […]

  • Avaata Supreme Nilgiri Green Tea

    Avaata Supreme Nilgiri Green Tea

    Perhaps it was kismet that I made a last-minute decision to take the day off– otherwise, I would have missed signing for this charming package from Golden Tips Tea! It’s not every day that you receive a package in the mail from India. Especially one wrapped in cloth and sealed with wax. The selection of […]

  • Won’t You Be My Valentine Tea?

    Won’t You Be My Valentine Tea?

    Some say Valentine’s Day is just a Hallmark holiday– a consumerist holiday to lure starry-eyed suckers into buying over-priced chocolates to prove their love. And to them I say, “if you’re not going to eat those, may I have them?” I shant complain about February 14, and if my boyfriend chooses to love me one […]

  • Teaview: This is What Christmas Tastes Like?

    Teaview: This is What Christmas Tastes Like?

    I’m feeling fairly removed from the holidays this season. I haven’t done much shopping, I haven’t listened to Christmas tunes, I haven’t watched any of my Christmas-time faves, and to top it off, it seems like we’re going to have more of a muddy Christmas than a white Christmas this year. So, in an effort […]

  • Teaview: Cranberry Tea– a new Thanksgiving staple?

    Teaview: Cranberry Tea– a new Thanksgiving staple?

    Why is the cranberry a staple of Thanksgiving dinners? It’s so tart, and how can it even compare to the rest of the savory dishes that fill the table? It is a traditional side dish though, and when it comes to Thanksgiving, I cannot forego tradition. Sometimes it just requires a creative twist. Like this […]

  • Teaview:  I’m not nuts about Almond Tea

    Teaview: I’m not nuts about Almond Tea

    On occasion, I get a hankering for the flavor of amaretto or raw almonds. I blame it on my sister-in-law, who fixed me my first amaretto sour, when I went to visit she and my brother in the very flat lands of North Dakota (to this day, one of my favorite vacations…EVER). I’ve been obsessed with […]

  • Teaview:  What do you mean you’re not black tea?

    Teaview: What do you mean you’re not black tea?

    Every so often I’ll dive into a cuppa tea without reading into what I’m drinking, and I’ll make some pretty rash assumptions. This happened recently when I was brewing myself a cup of Adagio’s Ooooh Darjeeling. (Did I type all the “O”s?) During my first few brews of Ooooh Darjeeling, I thought to myself “Wow, […]

  • Teaview:  This Tea Actually Made Me Wish for Snow

    Teaview: This Tea Actually Made Me Wish for Snow

    I received a bunch of different types of tea for Christmas, yet the lonely, sample tea bag of Adagio’s Chestnut Tea was the one that piqued my interest the most. I should preface this by saying I’ve never had a chestnut, so I can’t say “OMG, this totally tastes like chestnuts” or “Wow, Adagio. This […]
