It’s Tea Time!

I am a self-confessed coffeeholic. My day never starts {and my parts never function properly} until I got my first cup of the day. When I get bored, or run out of ideas to write, or get lazy to eat a proper meal, I go fix me another cup and before I knew it, I have downed 3-4 cups before my day ends. And even I get worried. Even when drinking coffee is truly enjoyable and it comes handy whenever I have headaches, over-consumption of caffeine has its downside and I must really do something about it.

That is why I decided to give tea a try. I have tried it before but I thought it was far less exciting than drinking coffee. Tea flavor is simply too bland for me and I thought I needed the kick that coffee gives. That is until I discovered there are actually tea brands and flavors that taste great! Like this Organic Apple Rosehip Raspberry Ripple from English Tea Shop, for example. I got this from a package I received last Christmas and since I am not really into teas, this box has been sitting in my cupboard for almost a year now. Turns out, it was the best tea I have ever tasted and now I am hooked!

I love the sweet hint of apple and the yummy raspberry flavor! And since this is organic, there is no cause for alarm when I consume up to 4 cups a day! It is perfect for this cold, Christmas weather and whenever I am feeling lazy and needed something to wake me up. It is also great company while working on my laptop writing this post about jazzmaster pickguard or while reading a new book. I will soon run out of my favorite tea and I sure hope I can find this in my local supermarket. I would also appreciate it if someone will gift me with this for Christmas! 🙂

Do you also love tea? Which flavor can you recommend?

Thirst-Quenching + Healthy Drinks From Islands Juice

foodie finds, beverages, healthy eating, juices

We’ve entered the rainy season last month, but can you believe the scorching heat? The hot and humid weather felt like we are still experiencing summer, and we need all the help we can get to cool off.

I was in a haste to find the Robinsons Galeria loos, when I passed by this small kiosk that sell seemingly-awesome looking juices. They looked too inviting, I did not leave without getting myself a bottle. Among the many flavors available, I opted for a bottle of lemon juice, which is one of my favorites.

I grabbed a quick late lunch and paired my meal with my newly-discovered lemon juice. I enjoyed my meal while reading all about fender telecaster musicians friend. The juice was surprisingly not too sour as I expected and tasted just about right. It has a rich natural lemon flavor and was the perfect thirst-quencher. It was also delightful to find out that Islands Juice products are made fresh everyday and that they are devoid of HFCS, preservatives, food coloring, and artificial flavors, making it a very healthy juice for everyone in the family to enjoy.

Islands Juice come in 11 exciting flavors, including Mango, Watermelon, Guyabano, Orange, Melon, Avocado, Pineapple, Bucky, Lychee, Lemon, and Apple Kiwi. Each bottle sells at Php50. I cannot wait to try the avocado and apple kiwi variants next! 😀

Indeed, it made my day juicier. Now, I wish we have a branch in the local mall in our city so I can easily grab a bottle or two whenever I am craving for healthy and tasty juices!
