Tea-Rrific! Limited Batch Ice Cream Brown Butter Sticky Toffee

The first review of the new year isn’t always promising. And yes, it starts with a cheat. I’ve had a bag of kale chips, coconut chips, and three different flavors of whey sitting on my counter for a week now but decided to go for the kill and suffered greatly for it.IMG_20160107_223158754Mediocrity comes at a cost. Roughly $12, to be precise. Continue reading “Tea-Rrific! Limited Batch Ice Cream Brown Butter Sticky Toffee”

Tea Box Express: September 2015 Subscription Box

I know, I have a backlog of boxes in my food review trunk, but what can I say? I love getting mail. I promise I’ll be back to sniffing out weird sandwiches sooner than you can say “questionable health codes”, gang. On the docket we have a Chicago trip, packed with more sausages and Michelin stars than a gay chef’s convention, and more tea to satisfy my endless, undying tame hedonism. For now, Tea Box Express.20150914_111756 Continue reading “Tea Box Express: September 2015 Subscription Box”

Amoda Tea: August 2015 Subscription Box

I’m a relatively classy guy and let the record show that if you want to up your sophistication, tea is the way to go. Fact: the best way to distance yourself from the bustling screams of the derelict on the streets below and the sounds of angry dogs fighting over garbage is not opiates, but oolong. I recently received a box of the good, leafy stuff from Amoda Tea, a Canadian company running a curated subscription box service, and tried out the goods for your consideration.IMG_20150827_160843024_HDR Continue reading “Amoda Tea: August 2015 Subscription Box”

Southern Boy Teas Rainbow Sherbet

Garlic bread, cheesecake, and cotton candy are not foods people, on a whole, would prefer to consume in liquid form, yet through the magic of modern-day science and free time, we now have that option. I ordered ten of the strangest iced tea flavors from Southern Boy Teas (garlic bread not included…I mean, we know how that’s going to end) last week to put them to the test. Since I’ve been home, I’ve really been getting into tea. Rather, my laziness has. Throughout my one-bedroom apartment, I’ve been placing strateagic (I swear that’s the last tea joke) stations to satisfy my craving. There are plenty of kettles to trip on.IMG_20150827_161855223_HDR Continue reading “Southern Boy Teas Rainbow Sherbet”

Palais des Thés Vive le Thé

I’m dead. There’s nothing left of me but a pile of promissory notes and a battered, bloody copy of the Model Penal Code. What’s the difference between a lawyer and a shut-in? The degree. What’s the difference between breakfast and lunch? No damned clue. I had a coffee for lunch. I distinctly remember blinking once at 10AM and once at 12PM and all of a sudden, it was 4 and the sun was going down.DSC_6669Oh my god. Continue reading “Palais des Thés Vive le Thé”
