blood Orange Humm Zero Kombucha


I found this kombucha on sale.  I was super excited to see a zero sugar added kombucha.  It does not need the extra sugar.  And I like that it does not have stevia in it.

This stuff is so good for you and your gut!!


10 calories!  And the flavors are really nice.  The funny thing you never see Blood Orange in the ingredients.  They list monk Fruit and white grape juice as the fruits.  So, I am not sure if you tell me it is blood orange and I just believe it....or if you combine grapes and monk fruit and they taste like blood oranges.   But, it did taste like oranges to me.



I give this four tea cups out of five.  The down fall for me is the cost.  But, on sale it is great!!  The flavor is really nice, the calories are great.  But, I think that the price is pricey for the smaller can.  I also like that you do not have to refrigerate it since it is in a can.

Buggy Brew, Spiced Apple Chai, Berlin



I was out and about in Amish Country looking for tea places. I was surprised to find a cafe inside the store, Country Gatherings in Berlin Ohio.

Country Gatherings reminds me of Chip and Joanna Gaines.  The style in there is very country rustic and I loved it.  I tried not to look at the items in the shop and just focus on the tea.




This little cafe is adorable. There was a nice variety of tea options. I was excited to try the Spiced Apple Chai.  It was fantastic!  I tried four teas while I was out and about this day and this one was my favorite.




There were several seating areas to pick from in the shop as well as outside too.


I just love their logo!!!  The tea cup is part of the buggy! Super clever and unique.




The flavors of this chai was so tasty.  I could get notes of apple and the warming chai flavors.  The prices were good, the decor can't be beat, and the staff was very friendly.  I would recommend this cafe and the shops around the area.

Tea Cup Quilled Card

I love this card!!!


I am a fan of quilling, my mom used to do it...and even I have have made a few quilled items.  But, nothing like this card!!!

I found it at Lehmans Hardware in Kidron Ohio.  https://www.lehmans.com/

Each quilled card is beautifully handmade by a highly skilled artisan and takes one hour to create. A quilled card is meant for you to share, treasure as a keepsake, or display as the work of art it is.



I have been looking for just the right frame for this card.  Knowing that the quilling made it thicker and I could not use a regular frame.

Then I was in a second hand store and saw a quilled card that framed!!  Perfect and it was only $2.00.  And now I have a quilled heart card that I can send to someone else. (Although I have no idea what the Chinese writing says, so I want to be careful who I would send it too, lol)


I love that there was a matte already included with the frame.  It is just beautiful and my card is protected. 






Check out the detail.  These cards run about $11...totally worth it.  I would not make this card for $11.00  They have lots of designs and styles.  Check out the website, they are all beautiful!

Li Wah Red Bean Milk Tea In Clevelands Asia Plaza

Heading to Cleveland for some dim sum and tea....





This restaurant was voted best Chinese Restaurant in Cleveland in 2021.


Red Bean Tea is a Taiwanese hot or cold tea drink made out of red beans.  Red beans (Adzuki )— are a good source of iron, phosphorus and potassium. They're also an excellent low-fat source of protein and dietary fiber. Red beans also contain phytonutrients. may include their ability to aid in weight loss, prevent and manage diabetes, optimize digestion, contribute to growth and repair, increase energy, lower blood pressure, reduce birth defects in infants, and detoxify the body.




My friend, Heidi and I, did our Wednesday Wanderings in Cleveland at Li Wah. 
Li Wah is in the Asia town in Cleveland.  It is one of the largest tea house in Northeast Ohio. I love a good adventure and exploring new place and this place qualifies for sure as a new place and a new adventure. 
I'm a huge fan dim sum and this was so much fun.
The food was really good and there was so much variety.


I love that they came around with a cart and asked what we would like to try...we did pot stickers, shrimp dumplings, fried Taro, and more.

I also enjoyed the hot tea and it was really hot, lol.



The fried Taro was my favorite.  It instantly took me back to Malaysia!  



The Red Bean Milk tea was good.  It was what you expect...sweetened milk with red beans.



There really are red beans in this tea!


The tea was good, not something I would drink on a regular basis. but good.  I forget how sweet some milk tea can be.  It is unique and fun to try.


Heidi did the bubble tea.


This is a fun restaurant and I look forward to going back again.  The restaurant is in a plaza, so be sure you leave time to do some shopping.
