Roasted chicken with tea, clementines + smoked salt {A comforting meal, a comforting evening}

Roasted chicken…it might sound boring to some, but it’s one of my favorite meals. And the fact that S, my 5-year old daughter also loves it, makes it a regular dish in our home. Crispy skin, fall-off-the bone meat…what’s not to love? With caramelized shallot mashed potatoes and some sautéed green beans it becomes a

Tea-infused wine from Tattle Tea {New Discoveries}

Don’t you just love when you come upon something new to eat or drink? It happens to be one of my favorite pastimes, so my ears perked up when I heard the words tea-infused wine. The lovely people at Tattle Tea, a company I’ve been talking about on Twitter + Facebook, have been adding blends

Not your grandmother’s iced tea

There are classic iced tea drinkers and those who love to experiment. If you’re in the latter category (as I am), I have a few ideas for you. One is this wonderful tea I just discovered at Harney & Sons in SoHo: the Fruits d’Alsace tea was inspired by Jean Joho, a famous Alsatian chef.

Tetley Tea Drinks for Kids (that you’ll enjoy, too)

Have you ever served tea to your children? I hadn’t until one day I was drinking my usual Chai and my daughter asked me for a sip. She loved it (she must take after me) and it made me think: perhaps I could make some tea drinks for her, with other ingredients she likes. Tea

Tea forte iced tea

I’m always raving about tea here on my blog. It’s truly one of my favorite drinks.

Honest Tea

New York was hot today, nearly 90 degrees, the kind of day that can wear you out if you walk a lot as I do. And when I was out and about with my very active toddler, I got thirsty. Not one for drinks one buys at corner delis (all that high fructose corn syrup

Zhena’s Gypsy Tea

As a self-confessed tea-a-holic, I am always on the lookout for new tea leaves to add to my ever-evolving collection. And though I prefer black tea of all sorts, I found a green that I actually like: the new line of biodynamic tea from Zhena’s Gypsy. This organic tea, which meets extremely rigid guidelines to

Tea Roasted Chicken

I’ve always loved the idea of cooking with tea, and what better way to begin than using this beverage to baste a roasting chicken. I have a whole cabinet of tea but decided on using one with some spice, just to experiment. When I was in Harvard Square in Cambridge a few weeks ago, I

Tea from SerendipiTea

I’ve come to the realization that I am a tea fanatic. Aside from wine and water, it is my drink of choice. I have an entire shelf of a cabinet devoted to tea and on that shelf I stock tins of Mariage Frere and others I’ve found in my travels. I don’t have a particular
