Giveaway: MarketSpice

For Today’s Tuesday Tea, I have a great giveaway, brought to you by the wonderful folks at MarketSpice in Washington state.

A little bit about MarketSpice:

  • The history of MarketSpice can be traced back to a small tea and spice shop established in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in 1911, where they are still located. (How did I miss them during my Seattle trip?)
  • They offer nearly 200 teas, continually developing new blends which are made daily in small batches.
  • MarketSpice Cinnamon Orange Tea is their “Signature” blend of black tea with spices and flavorings, though it also comes in different tea bases now.
  • In addition to teas, MarketSpice has a large assortment of spices as well as their own candle line, honeys, cookies, hot chocolate blends, chocolates, drink mixes, sauces, and mints.

I’ve also received some great looking teas from them to taste and share with you. Unfortunately I’ve only had the chance to try one so far (Knockout Tea), but it was quite delicious! I’ll be sure to report back with my thoughts on all of them, including: Winter Spice, Sunset in Seattle, White Chocolate Mocha, Market Chai, Knockout, Jamaican Fruit, Pike Place Market Anniversary, Egg Nog, Emerald Surprise, and Jingle Bell.

Single Origin Teas: Candied Chestnut

Packaging

Tasting Notes The dry leaves smell of rum and sugared nuts (think of those roasted nut stands in Asia). The smell of the brewed tea is of roasted nuts and smokiness with a hit of sweetness at the end. The liquor is a light amber. The sip starts

Banoffee Danger Pie #SecretRecipeClub

Banoffee Pie is one of my favorite desserts. It's a simple combination of bananas and toffee that together taste, as a whole, more than their parts. I've only seen a few banoffee "in the wild", and whenever I see it I snatch it up. That's why when
