  • Ingenuitea

    Ingenuitea

    My friend Heather cannot say enough about this teapot. The site has a very clear description of how it works: “When tea is ready, simply place it atop your cup. This will cause a valve at the bottom to release: crystal-clear tea flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the leaves.” Golf claps all around.

  • Laptop Lunch Bento Box Set

    Laptop-lunch-bento-box-set

    A reader wrote in to say: “This is an awesome lunchbox for kids, my standby birthday gift! Compartment setup really encourages people to avoid pre-packaged foods in favor of more eco-friendly (and healthy) options. Everyone on the playground has been asking me about ours.” The site calls them American-style bento boxes and says they’re dishwasher safe. Sounds good to me.

  • Yoga and Chocolate Chakra Box

    Yoga-and-chocolate-chakra-box

    Ha! Chocolate to align your chakras. The premise is that you have seven chakras that put out different energies in your body. You’re supposed to eat each truffle while sitting in a particular yoga pose to stimulate the various energies. It’s a tour of your spirit. Or a box of really good chocolate with an inspirational book. Either way, you can’t go wrong.

  • Mighty Leaf Tea Sampler

    Mighty-leaf-tea-sampler

    Delicious! When I admitted to being a tea freak, a bunch of my readers (most notably, Elise) sent notes urging us to post about Mighty Leaf Teas. I feel silly to have forgotten about Mighty Leaf for so long, because they’re an old favorite. Mighty Leaf packs tasty, whole-leaf tea into convenient, silky tea bags. (Most other tea bags are filled with crushed, bitter leaf flakes that are practically undrinkable.) This sampler gives your favorite tea snob 108 moments of peace, and many of the teas are even better on second brewing. Includes: Breakfast Americana, Earl Gold, Vanilla Bean, Orange Jasmine, Marrakesh Mint, Green Tea Tropical, African Nectar, Chamomile Citrus, and Mint Melange. (If you want the tea, but don’t need the pretty box and menu, you can purchase a refill box for only $54.)

  • Organic Calming Chamomile Herbal Tea

    Organic-calming-chamomile-herbal-tea

    ON SALE Though I’m a tea fanatic, I’ve never much enjoyed herbal teas. This chamomile tea has made me a convert. When you open the tin, you’ll find a jumble of sweet-smelling, whole chamomile flowers that look lovely in your cup. It has a touch of lavender and jasmine that make it a bit spicier and more honeyed than an average chamomile tea, but the effects are just as soothing. The site suggests reusing brewed blossoms in your bath, which sounds just fine.

    (Regularly $13. 1.9oz - makes approx. 40 cups)

  • Henckels Pro S 8-Inch High Carbon Stainless Steel Chef’s Knife

    Henckels-pro-s-8-inch-high-carbon-stainless-steel-chef-s-knife

    This knife makes me purr. We received one as a wedding gift years ago, and it still makes me smile every time I pull it out of the drawer. Hold one in your hand, and you’ll see what I mean. Resist the temptation to lick it, though. That smarts.

  • Safari Chef Portable Grill

    Safari-chef-portable-grill

    The Safari Chef is my new favorite camping gizmo. It’s a lightweight stove, grill, non-stick griddle, wok, and boiling pan in one. Everything stacks up nice and neat, and zips into a small carrying bag. My sister in law gave us one for Christmas, and now a few of our friends have bought their own after using ours. For portability and versatility, I prefer it to our two-burner Coleman stove. Not built for backpacking, but great for everything else.

  • Teastick

    Teastick

    An artfully designed option for loose-tea drinkers, the teastick scoops up your tea, slides shut, and rests against the side of your mug or teacup while the tea brews. The designers claim that it supports the “optimum flow for perfect steeping.” I just think it’s pretty. Thanks for the tip, Heather!
