meet matcha

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!

steaming teapot

We’ve been MIA and we apologize. We run here. We work there. We brew. We blend. We deliver. We open. We close. We have been moving at the speed of light!

So… this morning. We have slowed down just a bit. Turned on the tea kettle, prepared a cup of tea (we’re actually on cup three), and enjoyed the moment. There are no cell phones around. No iPads or computers (I promise to shut down after this post!). No agenda.

Everyone in the office is on required quiet time break. It’s nice. I can hear the bird outside of the window. I can hear a lawnmower in the distance. I can the faint noise of the flute in the jazz song playing on the radio. I can smell the lemon verbena growing in the office. My senses are alive. My heart is calm. And this cup of tea feels good in my hands.

Try it. Take a moment for yourself. Unplug. Breathe. And sip…

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!

smooth’tea’

March 11, 2014

You’ve pulled out your blender to make a smoothie. Now what?
ADD TEA TO IT!!!
With the warmer temperatures here to stay (we hope), there should always be iced tea on hand. So, no matter your favorite flavor, there’s a smooth’tea’ you can enjoy.
We started with our sweet tart iced tea
Added frozen strawberries, blueberries, and peaches. Threw in a few chia seeds, and you’re looking at refreshing!

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.

20140301-142949.jpg
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!!!

delicate and perfect

Today we are selling and sampling our teas at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It is the beginning of the Orchid Market and will be a busy day. Patrons from all around come to see the orchid collection.
I love the way an orchid looks. So delicate yet so sturdy. It doesn’t require much attention as long as it’s planted correctly and kept in good settings.
I guess, in a way, our lives are like an orchid. Proper foundation and ideal settings, we’ll thrive. Even though we are delicate, each one of us are beautiful flowers, waiting to bloom.
Cheers tea lovers!

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!
