Today I bring you a creative twist on gift ideas- DIY duos. I wanted to take something oh-so-popular like face masks & pair with other items I found inside Macy’s to creature unique gift duos moms & friends would love! Perfect for Mother’s Day, birthdays, holidays, & just to show you’re thinking of them! Keep reading to see these pairings! I also collected a vast amount of alternative ideas just in case you want to try something else!…
So are you ready for another Tea & Coffee Tuesday? This week we have a very special tea in a new beloved mug. Oh happy day. My mom & I went to the Getty Museum when I was in California & had quite a fancy meal. By the end we were too full for dessert so we opted for tea- & I’m pretty sure it was this one! The Revolution Tropical Green Tea is a full-leaf tea with flow-through net infuser. The box I purchased has 16 bags all in a resealable bag within the box. Handy & not as much waste as individual packages which remaining fresh.
What made me search this out was the flavor- mom & I went wild for it! After having an amazing cheese plate & a beautiful wild mushroom & truffle risotto you’d think tea wouldn’t compare, right? Nope, it stuck with us & we both sought it out. I think my box might be a bit outdated because you can see it on their website & the box is different.
From Revolution– You are about to enjoy the most exciting green tea on the planet! Revolution Tea’s Tropical Green is a natural blend of Dragonwell green tea, Young Hyson and pineapple flavoring. Rich in flavor, this award-winning tea will convert anyone to the wonders of green tea. This is fabulously tropical- perfect hot or iced. There’s something beautiful about these see-through sachets. I think being able to see the ingredients with zero cleanup is just such a treat. I taste the pineapple along with notes of orange peel, jasmine, & a light lemon undertone.
The mug is brand new so I want to make a little note about it! I thought this was so cool & it is a Kate Spade Saturday Morning Mug. I know I don’t need more mugs/cups/reallyanything but I just fell in love. This mug in particular doesn’t appear to be on the site any longer but here is the Kate Spade Saturday home items to shop through. Not an affiliate link, just sharing! She has some gorgeous things! I love the soothing shades of blue, different faces, & basically awesome artistic-ness.
What are you drinking today? Anything fun going on in your lives?
It sure has been a long time since I posted a Tea & Coffee Tuesday, sorry about that! Today I get to share with you Garden of the Andes 100% Organic Rosehip & Hibiscus Herbal Tea. It is almost Valentine’s Day after all! Doesn’t it sound romantic?
“For centuries, roses have grown freely in the Andean prairies. When their tender petals fade and fall, what’s left is one of nature’s most potent curative secrets: the rosehip. Combined with the power of hibiscus, the result is a blend rich in vitamin C to boost the body’s immune system, stimulate kidney function and improve digestion. Garden of the Andes’ organic garden produces millions of these ruby jewels, allowing them to bring the Chilean sunshine to your teacup. The Garden of the Andes organic tea farm is nestled in the lush valleys of the Andes Mountains. Blessed with crisp alpine air, fed by crystal waters of mountain lakes and streams, abundant in nutrient-rish soil, this idyllic environment produces vigorous plants with exquisite aromas, flavors and health benefits. Using the latest sustainable practices and traditional growing methods, Garden of the Andes nurtures the finest indigenous herbs and flowers to create highly praised tea blends.”
This tea smells heavenly & has that great floral taste I was looking for. Although I like that is is organic I do wish it was packaged a bit differently to go with the whole earth-loving theame. I have a box of 20 tea bags, each individually wrapped (great for on the go!) & they also have tags with strings. Just something to note! this tea comes from Chile as do other teas from the brand.
Name: Garden of the Andes 100% Organic Rosehip & Hibiscus Hearbal Tea

Notes: 100% Organic Rosehip fruits & Hibiscus flowers

Where to purchase: You can find it on Amazon here for purchase. You can also find their products here.
Have you tried any teas from the Garden of Andes brand? I think I’d really like to check out some more! I have a problem finding rose-based teas so this is a great treat!
