Keeping Up With iHeartTeas

As most of you already know I have a lot going on right now.  You would think being pregnant was enough for someone’s to-do list but as it turns out I just can’t stop myself from doing more.  I will highlight a few things that have been going on.  A brief explanation of what I have been up to just 6 days 3 days away from delivering my baby boy Ethan Asom Carter.

Monthly Tandem Tea Tasting Google+ Hangout

Our last gathering consisted of a mini-holiday card project and a couple of seasonal tea favorites from iHeartTeas.  We sampled the following…

  1. Creamy Pumpkin Spice Tea – Not a chai so please expect a very spicy tea.  This is a mellow tea with essence of pumpkin, creamy sweet background, and a light flavoring of seasonal spices.  This is great straight but lately I have been making it as a stovetop latte.  I have a post about just how I did this on my blog.  I will link it here.  Pumpkin Tea Latte Recipe Creamy Pumpkin Spice Pic
  2. Winter Frost – Also a black-based tea I actually enjoy this blend year around.  I know my husband can’t live without it.  It is his absolute favorite tea ever.  It is bright, minty, with deep undertones.  It blends peppermint, cinnamon, and vanilla flavors.  I would like to make is as a cold blended tea similar to a Frappuccino from Starbucks but have yet to try it.  When I do I will report back of course. Winter Frost

I don’t want to go to into these teas as they are mine and I am partial to them but feel free to read the unbiased reviews of the others that drank these on their blogs in case you are curious of their feelings.  Lastly, below is the card I put together for our mini-holiday project.  I love card making and scrapbooking so including this was a ton of fun.

theDevotea & iHeartTeas Holiday Gift Pack Collaboration

For the last 4 to 5 months I have been working with Nicole Schwartz, owner of theDevotea-USA to come up with some natural, tea-infused products to showcase our best products and talents.  Using her amazing tea blend known as 1,001 Nights I formulated an exclusive to theDevotea only products.  The first of many adventures I hope.  The first product made is an all-natural vegan cold process soap and the second also an all-natural, vegan lip balm.  The soap is geared more towards a bright vegetal lemongrass scent and the lip balm more balance with both fragrances but a touch more towards the side of peppermint.  We used no artificial colors or fragrance and just know you will love this pairing.  Don’t’ forget we tea-infused the oil used in both products with real tea, peppermint, lemongrass, and lemon myrtle which was provided by thedevotea.  It is sure to please everyone on your list this holiday season.  Perhaps this would make a wonderful present for you as well.
