Gluten Free Goodness, Tea and an Awesome Giveaway Courtesy of Wild Earth Bakery
Posted Oct 13 2009 10:07pm
I love tea.
And all things related to tea.
My dear friend Charis introduced me to the goodness of tea. My first tea love was Bengal Spice. I loved the spiciness and warmth and now enjoy it with a bit of almond milk for an extra special treat. I’ve since expanded my tea repertoire and it’s incredibly rare for me to go without tea at some point in the day.
A couple weeks ago Joey, Lori and I stopped byWild Earth Bakeryagainand I was absolutely thrilled when we found this:
A pinkto-go mug with a loose leaf tea strainer!! While I do have a lot of bagged teas, I adore my loose leaf teas (including rooibos, organic mint and licorice) especially because many of them have incrediblehealth benefitsand healing properties. Joey saw my excitement and bought it for me. I was so excited to be able to easily take my loose leaf teas on the go with me in a pink cup nonetheless! Not only is it cute, but it’s functional too and keeps my tea warm for 2 (sometimes 3) hours! It’s so perfect for rehearsal, work or my meetings.
Mug aside, I was once again excited to be enjoying a baked good from Wild Earth. They have such an amazing selection of delicious treats, even (and especially) for those of us who are gluten free and/or vegan.
They also have a pretty amazing selection of teas. When I went back there this week (everything in moderation, right?) I treated myself to a gluten free vegan berry square and creme au caramel rooibos tea – such a lovely duo!
I love that the berry square had quinoa in it. Such a great touch and it was absolutely scrumptious.The baked goods are made in house and extra precautions are taken to ensure that there is no cross contamination between the gluten free and traditional baked goods. Wild Earth also offers gluten free breads, sandwiches and have recently added soup to their menu as well. Everything I’ve had so far has been delicious and it’s just so refreshing to be met with so many options in the gluten free AND vegan baked good department.
I’m so thrilled thatWild Earthsponsored this giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a clear BPA free, eco-friendly,Trudeau Tea-riffic(sorry no pink, this one was the second to last one in the store!!) and a bag of the Creme Au Caramel Rooibos (delightful!)
