August Love Letter

What are your most beloved summer memories?               For me, it’s the sweet scent of newly opened blossoms and baskets filled with iced tea, fresh fruit, and homemade snacks. Wearing breezy cotton clothes and leaving shoes behind to feel the earth - moss, grass, or sand underfoot. Meandering through woods, dipping in wild waters, and getting lost in gardens or fields of wildflowers like bees drunken on nectar. The embrace of golden sunshine kissing the skin. These long summer days feel eternal, full of abundance, joy, and light. In our gardens and wild spaces…               August is here and we are making the most of the season and preserving the bounty to use in the year ahead. The work we...

Ritual Chai Tea Latte

Not many things make my heart pitter-patter like chai tea does. Yes, that may seem an extreme thing to say, but have you had a perfect mug of chai? Today, I'm going to walk you through the steps to do just that, using Ritual Chai, my absolute favorite tea. We'll be using the stovetop method to get the most out of the spices and make a tea concentrate, before turning it into a chai latte.  You will need:  1 small saucepan 2 cups water 2 tbsp. Ritual Chai, heaping 1.5 tbsp. honey (or preferred sweetener)  1.5 cups milk (dairy or plant based) Blender (optional, but makes the best frothy chai) This recipe will make 2 large servings.

Snow Drop Chai Latte

Snow Drop Chai is a beautiful herbal blend that has quickly become a favorite for when I need tea (and that is very often) , but it's too late at night to drink my absolute favorite,  Ritual Black Chai. Orange, lemongrass, and star anise shine through in this blend,  with lovely notes of jasmine, ginger, and cinnamon, while fennel and peppercorn dance within. It's somehow gentle, yet bold. I love it with a splash of milk and of course, honey. My favorite way to brew tea is to simmer it on the stove for at least 15 minutes. Doing this, intensifies all of the flavors and creates somewhat of a concentrate, which is perfect for mixing with milk. Here is my go...
