“Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea.”
Last week I ran out of Kodiak cakes! Fear not, more boxes were on the way the next day. I bought them myself, but I asked Cameron if he might want to give a discount for you guys – ‘cause they’re so good and all. 20% off coupon on the way soon!
I’ve been using up a box of Buttermilk + Honey and just switched back to Original this morning (I bought one of each) and I have to say I think I prefer the Buttermilk now! It’s got a tangy doughiness that I just love.
Cookin’ away with chopped pecans and bananas!
Another product I have stumbled upon and love are these Adagio teas I keep writing about. Blog reader April turned me on to their site when she emailed me a $5 off coupon and said “GO BUY THE COCONUT.” I was on the hunt for teas I love then, so I did – along with Vanilla and Birthday Tea [which has sprinkles in it!], all black teas.
They were all WONDERFUL! I’ve been using them up, so I just went back online to order more, and that’s when I found the Almost Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream, which is my current favorite. I love that you can order smaller sample bags in most of the flavors. I ordered a sample of the Rooibos Cocoa Mint, which was great in the afternoon because it’s caffeine free. Nice and minty with a chocolate hint. I liked A Toasted Marshmallow, but didn’t love it [and had to buy full size on that one, but I took a risk on marshmallow.]
Lastly, I bought the Holiday Sampler of black teas – Chestnut, Candy Cane, Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread but haven’t tried these yet! I have high hopes!
Three more teas I’ve been into – Golden Moon’s Vanilla Mint + Coconut Pouchong (maybe the coconuttiest tea ever? It’s not black though, so it’s weaker) and Red Velvet – caffeine free and good. These two Golden Moons were recently on sale on OpenSky.
Adagio did notice that I had sent them quite a bit of traffic via the teas that I bought, and this arrived on my doorstep gratis:
It’s their IngenuiTEA tea pot for brewing loose leaf teas. I have to say, it has changed my life when it comes to loose leaf. I much prefer the ease of teabags, but this has made either kind no problem. [At first I was nervous about pouring my hot water into the plastic container, but they use a special heat-resistant plastic that’s BPA-free]
You just put in your tea, pour on the water and when you’re ready, put it over your cup and the tea comes out. No dripping, no spilling. I was very impressed. I just lightly rinse it out after use, deep cleaning every week or so.
Oh, and I’ve mastered the foam! In the bottom of my mug (so glad I don’t have to use a separate glass now!) for 30 seconds in the microwave (glad I have one now!) and froth for 30 seconds. I just put the IngeuiTEA on top and I’m ready to sip!
So back to those cakes..!
This was the Sweet Potato Blend! Not as good as the Pumpkin Ice Cream, but still a great black tea.
Happy Halloween Eve!
