Depending on the blend, it can transport you away, calm you down, soothe a bloated stomach, help with symptoms of a cold, or just keep you going. If you come to my house, you won’t find 1-2 blends of tea; you’ll find […]

Sous Vide FEature image

Sous Vide. Before you go and bastardise the French language and read the whole post saying it wrong, let me tell you now; it’s pronounced ‘sue veed’ not “sue’s veeday”. Also, my photos aren’t up to normal standard. These were taken when I was between homes and lodging back with my parents. I had Mum […]

If you ask me if I want a coffee, the answer will always be no. I am a tea person. I used to have the occasional mocha (hot chocolate + coffee), but I practically only drink tea and water these days. My main two favourites are Earl Grey and green tea (Chinese or Japanese, I’m […]
