Sweet Green…Tea!

March 8, 2007

Green Tea Cookies
In keeping with our “green” theme for the month, I figure it was only appropriate to include this special offer from Amai Tea & Bake House.  Of course I’m a bit partial to this special bakery, being the CBO and all!  But seriously, this lovely box of Green Tea Sweets cookies and organic, fair trade, Emerald Lily Green Tea makes a perfect gift for someone special or a wonderful treat for yourself.  I promise you won’t be disappointed!  And while you’re savoring every bite and enjoying each sip…you can also relish in the fact that your purchase is also doing some good.  Amai will donate 5 percent of the sales from the Green Tea Gift Box to the GREEN RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION, whose mission is to create an ecologically sustainable restaurant industry (which represents 10 percent of the U.S. economy).  And if that weren’t enough, just think…these cookies have been in the company of some of Hollywood’s finest, as they were a centerpiece for after parties at the Golden Globes and Oscars!  They’ve even had their 10 seconds of fame as “snack of the day” on the Rachel Ray Show.  So, if you’ve been waiting for the perfect reason to try some of these yummy cookies…now is the time!

Living Green Tips of the Day – WATER CONSERVATION:

  1. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
  2. Do not let water continue to run while washing dishes by hand.
  3. Limit your time in the shower.
  4. Fill a pitcher of water and keep refrigerated instead of running water for cold drinks.
  5. Only run the washing machine and dishwasher when completely full.
  6. Do not flush the toilet unless absolutely necessary.
  7. Don’t thaw foods under running water, fill a bowl and soak.
  8. Reuse water whenever possible.
  9. Listen/check for leaky faucets (inside and out) and fix.
  10. Insulate hot water pipes so that you don’t have to run as much water to get hot water to the faucet.

    Hi Vivian!! We miss you too! It’s been way too long since we’ve seen you. But if it’s any consolation, we haven’t really seen any of the other ladies either. Hopefully, we’ll all be hanging out in a new shop/kitchen very soon! Hope all is well…loved hearing from you.
