ROOIBOS TEA

Although my absolute favorite teas are the Pu Erh Teas, when I am wanting a caffeine free option, my go-to is a Rooibos Tea, commonly known as the “red tea!" These teas are great anytime throughout the day, hot or iced, and have a wide range of health benefits associated with them! Unlike White, Green and Black teas, Rooibos tea does not come from the typical Camellia Sinensis plant. Instead, rooibos is actually from the South African bush known as Aspalathus Linearis, which is a member of the legume family (beans, peas, peanuts, etc.).

OLIVE WOOD HONEY DIPPER

If you've ever walked into any of our stores, you may have seen the Olive Wood Honey Dippers near our honey section! These Olive Wood Honey Dippers are not only gorgeous, but they are actually quite useful if you are a honey enthusiast, like myself! Our employees regularly get questions about the function and benefits of using a honey dipper! The honey dippers that we carry are made from Olive Wood. These beautiful honey dippers are handcrafted in Tunisia, which is a North African country found on the Mediterranean Sea. They are formed from a single piece of wood, and are never glued or joined together. Sometimes, depending on the consistency, honey can be difficult to get out of a jar using a spoon without making a deliciously sticky mess! That's where our Olive Wood Honey Dipper comes in...
