le meilleur thé est en France

Most people would think go to England to get the best tea. But, believe it or not - France actually had tea nearly 25 years before the English. I am talking 17th century, in the 1630s. Tea became popular in French aristocratic circles and its rumored that the French actually initiated the addition of milk to tea. Well, that doesn't surprise me one bit, they put cream in everything. Today, I am touting that the best tea is in France, and you can get it at Mariage Frères (Mariage Brothers) tea company in Paris; which today the oldest tea house in France, founded in 1854. The Mariages have family roots in the tea import biz, since late 1700s.


Catskill Comfort

Maples trees are a dime a dozen in Upstate New York. Maple syrup requires 10 gallons of sap to yield one quart of syrup. That is about what the average tree will tap in one year. It really should be called liquid gold! It is wonderful to see the resurgence of the popularity of cottage industry goods, like local maple syrup. Catskill Comfort, besides having a catchy name has a stellar medium amber syrup that is going to make my good stuff picks. I found it at my local coffee shop, Jacks. Catskill Comfort will guild the lily on my Stack of Homemade Pancakes this weekend.
