Saturday Cruisin’

March 1, 2014

Saturdays are easy {kinda like Sunday morning}. You wake up late, decide how you’re going to spend the day, and head out. You may meet friends for brunch or head to the market for tonight’s dinner.

You may even be this stylish pair and cruise downtown on your bike. Meet Ese and Jack.

We met them at Piedmont Park’s Green Market this Saturday and the two immediately caught our attention. Well dressed pair, vintage yet modern bikes, and their love for tea! They purchased our georgia peaches and black coconut tea and rode off into the park. What a perfect way to spend a Saturday! Carefree and cruising on bikes while enjoying the city.
So… Next Saturday, when you roll out of bed, put a little dapper in your wardrobe. Have an agenda but none at all. Get a little bit of effortless exercise. And enjoy the day {oh and a cup of tea, of course}!
Cheers!!!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

It’s the happiest season of them all!

{{{are you singing?!}}}

December is here {how did arrive so soon} and the Holiday seas is in FULL swing! And it is that time to pull all of your Pinterest boards together and channel your inner craft. Even if you are semi to not-so crafty, there are things you can make to impress your friends.

Our friends at The Kitchn, have posted a recipe that we are going to attempt to add to our gift giving list {and you should too!}.

Herb Infused Honey

Herb Infused Honey

Ingredients

Basic formula: Use about 1-2 tablespoons of dried herbs per 1 cup (8 ounces) of honey.

Honey: A light, mild flavored honey generally works best. {Our friends at TruBee offer an amazing honey}

Herbs: Use a single herb or a combination. Rosemary, sage, thyme, mint, lemon balm, lavender, chamomile, rose petals, and pine needles all make lovely infused honeys. You can also use spices like vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and star anise. Herbs should be dry; see instructions below.

Equipment
Clean, dry jars and lids (half-pint and pint mason jars work well)
Chopstick, wooden spoon handle, or other stirrer (avoid metal, which can scratch jars)
Clean cloth for wiping jar rims
Strainer

Instructions

1. Prepare herbs: Herbs should be dry (see safety note, below) and may be in the form of whole sprigs or separated leaves, buds, and petals. Chopped herbs may infuse more quickly, but they may also be harder to strain out. (To dry fresh herbs, use an air or oven drying method, dehydrator, or microwave.)

2. Combine herbs and honey: Place herbs in the bottom of a jar and fill the jar almost to the top with honey. Using a chopstick or other implement, stir to coat the herbs with honey. Top off with more honey to fill the jar. Wipe the jar rim with a clean cloth and cover tightly.

Tip: Label the jar with the contents and date so you don’t forget!

3. Infuse: Let the herbs infuse for at least 5 days. If the herbs float to the top, turn the jar over a few times to keep them well coated. For a more intense flavor, infuse for another week or longer.

4. Strain: Strain the honey into a clean jar. Depending on the volume of honey and herbs and the size of the strainer, you may need to do this in stages. (Tip: Use the leftover herbs to make a tisane.)

5. Store: Store the honey in a tightly covered jar in a cool, dry place. It will last indefinitely.

Pair with a tin of just add honey tea and your gift giving is done.

Cheers!

The Flavor of Georgia event was a blast! We picked up our apron, set up our space, and could not wait to introduce our tea to Georgia! We met Senators, Congressmen, Lobbyists, and several other prominent figures in and around the state. We received rave reviews and look forward to a busy 2013.

We also met so many new food companies, made new friends, and sampled WAY too much food!!!

Our neighbors, and now buddy, Gayla’s Grits, keep us in stitches {and our bellies full} with her truth humor and delicious corn milled grits. I have so many grit recipes I can’t wait to try, I’m going to make the house sick! Okay, maybe not sick, but I’ve already made olive oil grits in the crock pot. Grits with Rotel is next on the menu!

Our neighbors on the right make spices to aid in down home Southern Soul food. Their entry: collard green spices. The spices enhance the flavor of your greens and reduce the cook time. Brilliant, I tell ya! Their collards and corn bread was a huge hit at the sampling table.

I have a sweet tooth that I just can not shake and the ladies from Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies did not help me with my problem. Their sea salt caramel bars were AMAZING! I forced myself to stay away {considering I wasn’t a judge!}, but boy was it difficult. And they were nice ladies too. Charming and fun to be around. I hope I run into them again soon.

Along with other talented artisianal food companies like Emily G’s jams and Phickles Pickles, TruBee honey was named in Bon Appetit’s article for it’s smooth taste, modern packaging, and southern flair. But we already knew that!

Order a jar of American raw honey today to complement your cup of tea. Because life is always sweeter, if you…
