with tea – summer. journal I by Alexis Siemons
One of the best parts about being as involved in the tea world as I am is having friends who do really, really cool things. with tea is definitely one of those things. +Alexis Siemons has long been one of my favorite writers. I was so exited when I heard that she would be producing a quarterly printed journal. Each edition is filled with seasonal tea-infused recipes and stories. Not only does she have an incredible way with words but she also has a knack for putting together wonderful flavor combinations. Her stories really make the recipes come alive.
The summer edition contains 11 recipes accompanied by beautiful photography. All together it is 48 pages, making it a fun and quick read. I really appreciate the high quality feel of the paper used. From in-a-jiffy tea butter to earl grey & roasted garlic lemon aioli, each page that I turn makes me hungrier! Each journal comes beautifully wrapped in a vintage handkerchief. It’s a old fashioned touch of class that you don’t often see. The entire package is beautifully done and I can hardly wait for the fall edition to come out. Congrats to Alexis on a job well done!
