Candy Cane Milkshake with Pure Leaf Raspberry Iced Tea

December 6, 2016 in Beverage / Tea Recipe

This is the perfect recipe to say a final farewell to the warmer weather all while welcoming the festive season. Ice cream is not a one season treat for me and sometimes plain vanilla is all I need because I prefer dressing ice cream up myself. That usually involves tea in some way. Whether I’m sprinkling matcha on top before I indulge, or drizzling on a houjicha infused magic chocolate shell, tea and ice cream seem to be made for one another. This time around I’m taking Pure Leaf Canada’s Raspberry Iced Tea and making a candy cane milkshake. Read more…

Masala Chai

5 of the Best Chai Brands You Should Try

November 29, 2016 in Learn / Tea Thoughts

Let’s be real for a moment. I don’t always make myself a cup of masala chai from scratch. While I do know that it’s incredibly satisfying and delicious to drink a warm cuppa that I know was made entirely by me, there are many days I just want to use a tea that is already blended for my convenience. There is no doubt that I love masala chai. It’s always a favourite when the colder seasons arrive whether I prepare it traditionally, bake with it, or even steep it into my hot chocolate for an extra tasty treat. I even named my cat Chai because of my love for it! So when I’m feeling like a quicker but still delightful and flavourful cup, I reach for one of my favourite and best chai brands. Read more…
