I am a huge water drinker. I mean HUGE, meaning I drink about twice the amount that one person is “supposed” to drink in a day. But sometimes plain old water can get boring. That’s why I was so excited when Kaizen One approached me to help with the launch of their new VIVA Infusion Tumbler. To give you a little but more background on the brand, Kaizen One is a small team inspired by making healthy choices, living in the moment, and one believes that self-improvement is needed in order to make a difference within our communities. With that mission statement, I was totally on board.
Their new VIVA Infusion Bottle is absolutely gorgeous- lovely glass complete with an eco-friendly bamboo top. I think what excites me the most about it is that I can use it for steeping tea or for fruit infusions. I have been meaning to try to replace some of my coffee consuming with tea consuming… TBD on how that goes, but I’m sure this VIVA Infusion Bottle will help on that journey.
I’ve made it one of my goals to start making more coffee at home, since 1: I am a coffee addict and 2: I spend entirely too much money on coffee from coffee shops, even though I do enjoy a trip to Alfred Coffee or Eightfold. I like to make coffee at work on the weekdays (yes, I do work a full-time job) and at home on weekends. At work, I have a nice Pour Over Coffee Maker that I like to use with Stumptown Coffee. But at home, Jack likes to make espresso using Blue Bottle Coffee and an Italian Espresso Maker. I figured it would be good to write a post about how to use these contraptions to save money but make really good coffee while at it!
I’m super excited to share with you all today’s post. I teamed up with Pique Tea, an innovative tea company based in San Francisco that makes organic tea crystals that dissolve instantly in both cold and hot water – making it easy for tea lovers to enjoy exceptional loose-leaf grade tea in an instant. Being an avid tea lover myself (iced green tea mostly), I really like this concept, because there is no steeping involved and you can still get all the great health benefits of green tea. To fuel my iced green tea obsession and hopefully yours, I created an easy recipe for Jasmine Green Tea Lemonade using Pique Tea’s Jasmine Green Tea, lemons, and a little sugar.
