matcha

It’s green. It’s hot. It’s fresh. It’s new {but not really}. It’s MATCHA!

It’s the new “IT DRINK”.

Made from finely milled green tea, it’s perfect as a morning healthy kick in the pants or afternoon pick me up. Lovely as a tea latte or a different twist in your smoothie, matcha has so many ways that it can be enjoyed. Because it is in powder form, it is easily added to ice cream to yogurt; popsicles to desserts.

At Two Red Bowls, they offer a recipe for Matcha Shortbread Cookies. We think it’s perfect with a cup of tea.

Tell us how you enjoy your matcha or stop in our shop and let us whip you up a cup!

Cheers!

Here in the South, we know Spring has arrived by our noses. The equation goes…
beautiful blooms = sneezing + scratchy throats
It’s ok! Local honey helps relive the woes of the season. And just add honey tea company wouldn’t be a tea company if we didn’t have a little of Spring’s ‘liquid gold’ to help you through the season. So while brewing your cup of tea, stir in a spoonful of honey.
Cheers!

6 Creative Ways to enjoy National Hot Tea Month

teapot and tea

January is National Hot Tea Month. There is National doughnut Day. National Pi Day. National Talk Like a Pirate Day. But tea gets an entire month! Tea lovers rejoice!!! And what better way to celebrate than to embrace the frigid temperatures and turn on the teapot. Here at just add honey, we welcome National Hot Tea Month and find creative ways to enjoy the beverage all January long.

  1. Sample a tea you have never tried before! Have you heard of pu’erh tea? Or Yunnan? How about basil tea? Or infusing lavender in your current favorite? During January, take a moment to relax, relate, revisit teas that you want to explore and possibly enjoy. You only need an ounce to start with. And if you love it, add it to the rotation. If you don’t, offer it to a friend.
  2. Host a inspirational board party! Where do you want life to take you in 2014? What are your goals? Aspirations? Invite your business colleagues, girlfriends, or family over to brainstorm future goals for 2014. Turn on the teapot and get to work. With a group setting, it forces you to dream and explore past your comfort level and your counterparts can hold you accountable later during the year when you feel sluggish.
  3. Read a good book. With so many new indie authors out here, anything you want to know is in print or e-book for you to read. We are always so busy with life that we never take the time to stop. Force yourself to read a few sections, pages, chapters. During that time, enjoy a cup of hot tea. Schedule it in your day.
  4. Have a mid day mixer. Green tea has about 20mg of caffeine per cup {coffee = 85mg}. Why not have a green tea mid day mixer with your co workers. Around 2pm, ring a bell, turn on the teapot, and enjoy a cup like you would at the water cooler. Let the green tea give you the extra push to finish out the day!
  5. Meditate. Find a quiet place and reflect. Let your breath be slow, your mind be at peace. It only takes five minutes. After your meditation, enjoy a cup of hot tea. Your well-being will thank you for it.
  6. Just drink it! All the cool kids are doing it! Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world {water is first}. Do to be in the “in crowd”; do it for your health. Happy habits start now.

Cheers tea lovers!

fridays are fun days

November 22, 2013

As i sit at my desk, looking outside on this partly cloudy day, i think about when i was a kid. Fridays were fun days!

Now as an adult, Fridays are just the end of the work week. Thinking ahead to the next week. Trying to complete a to-do-list before quitting time. Busy weekends…

BUT I CAN THINK LIKE A KID AGAIN! I CAN MAKE FRIDAYS FUN DAYS! I CAN! I CAN!

Unknow

I will start with doodling in my calendar.

I will take a long lunch with my friends.

I will close my computer and daydream.

But first, let me finish this cup of tea.

HAPPY FRIDAY TEA LOVERS!!!

love it a latte!

What’s Fall without a cup of tea!

Fall has arrived and you must have the proper cup to enjoy the changing of the leaves. Leave it to just add honey to set you up properly. We have compiled a list of our favorite teas that are perfect, accompanied with milk (cream, almond milk, your choice) or can be enjoyed alone. Whatever you fancy, don’t let this season pass without your favorite blend in hand.

Cheers!
