Lime Cupcakes

  It might come as a surprise to you, since I love dainty, pretty things covered in pink, gold, and roses, that my favourite color is green. Not a soft pastel green. Not sea foamy green. A bold, dark green with a touch of blue in it. These cupcakes are a celebration of my favourite (green)…

Meet the Chickens

  Every day I feel so blessed to live in the country. I’m thankful for the birds singing outside my window, I’m happy for the wide open spaces, I’m grateful that I have enough space for a strawberry patch, but most of all, I’m overjoyed to be able to have a small mixed flock of…

French Soda

My dear friends, I have to apologize for the lack of posts on here lately!! I’m trying to get back into posting, and hopefully over the summer you will see more from me 😉 Warm weather has finally arrived, and I’m celebrating it with all the iced tea I can manage 🙂 I saw a…

Very Berry Bundt Cake

I know, most of the cakes I’ve posted on here have only slightly been related to the tea that I pair with them, or they haven’t been even close to them in terms of flavour. I promise, this one is different. And the recipe will be included at the end of the post 🙂 But…

Strawberry Jam and Pink Flamingo

I found the perfect macaron bowl! But first, this tea. Dusky blackberry coloured. Flavour reminiscent of lemon cough drops with a sweet tang from the hibiscus. Fruity notes from the apple, carrots, and tangerine. Meet your new best tea friend, Pink Flamingo (from Davids Teas)! If you love hibiscus and tangerine as much as I do,…

An Apple Cake + Nuts

I think pussy willows mean that it’s officially spring now. Who feels the same way as I do? I changed my backdrop! Do you like it better? I do, and hopefully I’ll be using it from now on. Also…new tea!! I was going to post a photo of my tea haul, but just never got…

Blood Orange Cake

Happy weekend friends! It might come as a surprise to you, after all those photos of the blood orange cake, that I am not the biggest fan of blood oranges. They have a beautiful colour, but they’re very expensive, hard to find, and they don’t taste that great. However, I have decided to try baking…

Strawberry Cream

  Who else is ready for spring? Winter is cozy, but sometimes I just feel housebound when it’s cold, snowy, and cloudy out. Thankfully it’s been warm over here, and sunny too, but it’s still pretty quiet outdoors. I’m looking forward to the spring birds coming back, and having fresh goodies from the garden again….

Tea Board

  Happy Thursday friends! How has your week been so far? I was hanging over at Hey Modest Marce a few days ago and was eyeing her fancy cheese boards. As you probably know by know, I’m vegan, and while good vegan cheese does exist, it’s pretty expensive and sometimes hard to come by over…

It’s Always Tea Time Somewhere…

 I’m trying to find different ways to photograph and arrange my photos, so you might see some changing looks as the blog and my pictures ‘evolve’. The photos for this post were shot*  on an oak table with natural lighting. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, I hope you get a chance to enjoy some…

Vintage Teacup Collection

I have to apologize to you guys- I had intended to post this last week, but I got busy and didn’t prioritize like I should have. Hey, it can be hard when you’re a student with lots of extra-curricular activities going on! But anyway, it’s here now, so no more excuses 🙂 I’d like you…

Vegan Chocolate Cake with Tahini Buttercream + Tea Pairing

Today I’d like to share one of my favourite cake recipes with you- Vegan Chocolate Cake with Tahini Frosting – and a new tea, Coco Chai Rooibos from David’s Tea. Has it ever been cold over here! I live in an area where we usually get a lot of snow during winters, but this year has…
