I joined the festivites and sent the chocolate and tea above to Danielle in Brooklyn, NY. The theme was tea and a snack. I chose chocolate and coconut chai teas and paired it with a chocolate and coconut bar. Hope she likes it.
I don't buy a lot of pre-bagged teas; loose leaf teas are usually a higher quality. But when I do pick a bagged tea, I like Zhena's. Zhena's teas are hand-crafted, unique infusions and they are 100% organic and 100% Fair Trade certified. On top of that, hers is a tear-jerking story. At the bottom, I've included a link to her book. It's inspiring, delicious, and engaging.
Danielle sent me a fantastic package and a lovely note. My boys tore into the package immediately!
Her card really made me smile! Look at those smiling flowers.
And here's just one of the treats Danielle sent: 'Baked in Brooklyn' flatbread crisps. They were so delicious. I actually took them out to the pool within minutes of opening the box and snacked while my boys splashed and played.
Danielle included some of her favorite teas - Celestial Seasonings because she went to college in Boulder; Bigelow because it's from the northeast. And she picked snacks from local New York companies. What a great package of treats!! Thanks so much, Danielle!
