If you made it over to the BUST Holiday Craftacular in Greenpoint,New York this past Saturday, you might have been lucky enough to get down with some adorable cats from Sean Casey Animal Rescue in our Cat Café sponsored by David’s Tea. But now—a week from now, to be exact—you will be able to release your inner cat lady any time you want (for $4 per half hour, booked online). Manhattanites are finally getting the cat café we have so longed for and deserve. Eater reports that Meow Parlour will open at 46 Hester Street on December 15th. Read More

For my first poetry show ever, one of my best friends offered to bake a super simple shortbread cookie for the audience. I was so nervous, but it was the perfect thing to add a calming and almost familial atmosphere. I endlessly appreciate this gesture because, since then, I have made ALL THE COOKIES! This recipe combines two of my favorite things, tea and baking.
I hear time and time again that baking is a very exact science and that straying from the recipe can lead to trouble, but I think I kind of like trouble, especially when it results in a soft, flavorful and elegant cookie. Read More

Tea is my favorite non-alcoholic drink--I'd choose it over hot chocolate or coffee on any cold day. So I was super excited when I first got my hands on a box of Kusmi Tea Essentials. This sampler box comes with 12 (yes, 12!) different teas. The variety can be a bit overwhelming, but in a good way. After all, who doesn't like having choices when it comes to food and drink?
My favorite is the Darjeeling N°37, a "subtle tea from India." It's a good tea to drink while working--an excellent option if you have lots of emails to reply to, or a stack of paperwork to get through. Read More

I love many things in life, but two of my favorites are cute things and tea, which makes Andrews and Dunham Damn Fine Tea now among my favorite favorites. Their unique blends of (delish!) tea are packaged in adorable tins with motifs like Star Wars, Chinese New Year, and mermaids! Sadly, all their teas are limited edition, but I think it would be totally awesome to build up a cute little tin collection after you've finished your teas. Read More
