Tea Advent Calendar Day 23 – White Cranberry Bark

Only one more day to go in my Advent calendar, and today’s tea is White Cranberry Bark, a fruit infusion with dried cranberries and white chocolate. It also contains dried papaya, apples, raisins, elderberries, and hibiscus blossoms.The mixture sounded delicious when I read the description.

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.)
