Tea Advent Calendar Day 20 – Carrot Cupcake

Only a few more days left for my Advent Calendar! In some ways I'll miss blogging every day, and in others I'll be happy to go back to my average of 2-3 posts per week. It's been hard to find time to craft since I started blogging about tea every day, so as a result, my blog has been pretty craft free this month. And I have to say, I'm feeling the pain! I think I'm going through craft withdrawal or something!

Tea Advent Calendar Day 19 – Organic The Spice is Right

Cute name for today's tea, it made me giggle a bit when I saw it. The Spice is Right is a green tea, and when I opened the tin, to smell it, it smelled strongly of cinnamon and cloves. Again.

I'm pretty sure I haven't tried it before, and it surprises me, because if I had seen it, I'm pretty sure I would have bought some based on the name alone.

Tea Advent Calendar Day 17 – Caramel Shortbread and Fantastic Bake Along Cherry Tarts!

I was late getting my pie filling for this week's Bake Along, I only picked it up this morning and didn't get making my tarts until late this afternoon. In fact, I just finished baking them about an hour ago! So instead of posting two separate, almost simultaneous posts, one for my Tea Advent Calendar and the other for the Fantastic Bake Along, I thought I would do one double duty post.

Tea Advent Calendar Day 16 – Sleigh Ride

We certainly have enough snow in Ottawa for a Sleigh Ride, an interesting name for a tea. This one is a fruit infusion and contains cinnamon, apples, raisins, almonds, hibiscus blossoms, pineapple, coconut and popped rice. (That last one gave me a start, I thought there were bits of popcorn in the tea when I opened the tin and dumped the mixture into the infuser.)
