Currently Crushing

Every now and then I come across a product or a gadget that I’m really feeling and I want to tell everyone about it, and since you are my new BFF I must tell you all about what I’m currently crushing on.

Peach Cobbler Tea

I love a flavorful tea. See this post to see how much I enjoy a good pot of tea. Truth be told, although the blog is called Mochas  and Mimosa. I actually prefer tea over coffee. I generally start and end my day with a cup of tea. It may be because I am Jamaican and growing up tea was the cure all in my house. If you had an upset stomach, drink mint tea; can’t sleep, drink chamomile tea; broken leg, drink some ginger tea. There was no ailment a cup of tea could not cure.

The other day I was perusing the tea aisle in my local grocery store and stumbled across this Tazo Organic Peach Cobbler tea. It sounded like a good after dinner drink on those days when I skip dessert.  It’s described as a melange of black tea with peach notes. It’s really more of a black spiced tea and not very fruity. There is just a hint of the peach flavor. I drink mine hot, with honey and sometimes I add a splash of milk.  Delicious!

Grill Mates Sweet & Smoky Rub

My favorite salty snack is popcorn. My love for popcorn is so serious that I had a popcorn bar at my wedding. It’s to the point that I base the movie theater I go to, around how good their popcorn is. Yes, I am serious about my popcorn! I buy popcorn kernels by the pound at the grocery store and make it at home, old school style, on the stove or with my air popper. I like to drizzle olive oil and sprinkle a little sea salt on it. So tasty!  I was feeling fancy one day and was rummaging through my spice rack in search of something different  to top my popcorn with. I decided to try this Grill Mates Sweet & Smoky Rub, which I initially bought to  season chicken, but it has become my official popcorn seasoning. It has a sweet, salty, smoky barbecue flavor.  Now, when you start seeing BBQ popcorn in the store you can say you heard it here first.

Rose Pinot Noir

In true Olivia Pope fashion I have to have something to wash my popcorn down with, and this Rose Pinot Noir  is it.  My go to wine is pinot noir and when I’m in a celebratory mood (which could be any given Friday), or at brunch, I like to sip a little bubbly. A friend of mine gifted me this bottle of Rose Pinot Noir for my birthday this year.  It was like my two favorite wines got together and had a baby. Hey baby Rose, you are just the cutest thing! I’ll admit the bottle alone had me swooning because it’s so lux and girly. I’m a sucker for cute packaging, but it taste good too. It’s crisp with an underlying flavor of red berries and pears.

Have you tried any of these? If so, drop me a line and let me know what you think. I would also love to hear what you’re currently crushing.

  1. I love these crushes! I am a huge popcorn fan myself and will have to give that seasoning a try. I generally just sprinkle parmesan cheese on mine. Thanks for sharing these ideas, you’re awesome!
