Day 2: Teatulia’s Neem Nectar Tea

3 Dec

I am having issues with the images so I will post the picture later!

Before I began to steep this tea I was woried that it was going to be a plain tasting cup, but as soon as I took my first sip Only one thought came to mind…. Comfort.

Describe in one word: Comforting

December: My month of Tea Day 1

2 Dec

I lost my grandmother on June 24, 2009. She was my best friend. My world.

She and I were both insomniacs. We would sit in the kitchen watching Seinfeld, playing cards, and…. drinking hot tea. We would stay up until 4a.m. doing just that and would make pot after pot of tea. I have not had one cup of tea since I lost her so this month is going to be a flood of emotions and memories.

How will this work?

– I am going to post the tea that I am trying every day along with an outline of what I think, then at the end of every week I will go into further detail.

December 1, 2010: Day 1

Tea: Teatulia’s Bengal Breakfast Tea

Steeped 2 minutes

Very rich aroma.

Bold yet not overwhealming.

Once I added creamer the flavor seemed to intensify and I was able to fully enjoy.

In one word: Mellow

Organic Smoked Oyster Mushroom Chowder Recipe & Review

20 Nov

I am going to be honest, I DO NOT like chowders. So, when I received the package from FungusAmongUs I was ecstatic. Then, as I was going through the contests and saw this soup my stomach dropped to the ground. I looked over the ingredients and came up with this.  <!–more–>

Onion Chowder Cups

You will need:

1 Package Organic Smoked Oyster Mushroom

1 pint Heavy Cream

2 cups water

1 package of biscuits

1/2 an onion

1 muffin pan

1 Sauce pan

1 small saute pan

Mediterranean Mushroom Melange- to your taste

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 spoon


Pour 1 pkg. Smoked Oyster Chowder, 1 pint heavy cream, and 2 cups of water into your sauce pan;  simmer on medium.


Open your package of biscuits, take your greased muffin pan and press the dough in the mold to form a “cup”.

One you have finished  bake the biscuit for half of the cooking time listed on the directions.


Take your saute pan and add the tablespoon of olive oil, onions, and Mediterranean Melange to taste and saute.

Take the muffin pan out and using your spoon flatten the biscuit so that if can be filled.


Add a few onions to each cup.


Then pour a few spoon fulls of your Oyster mushroom chowder on top.


Once all of the cups have been filled place the pan back in the oven for the remainder of the time that biscuit package advises.

Once done let sit for a few minutes and serve!



I have a confession to make… I think I may like chowder after all. I am so glad that I gave this a try, the flavor, and texture are both amazing! My Husband and father had a blast eating the little “cups”. Again this meal took less than 45 mins. So far these soups seem to be great and some thing good to have on hand for a quick, substantial meal.
