Creative Recipes / Restorative Ginger Mint Tea

It is officially fall! The weather is getting crisp and cool and all of a sudden our urges to be out and about have turned into urges to curl up in a blanket and read a book with a hot cup  of tea. We all have our go-to teas that we love, but if you want to change things up this year, try making your own herbal tea from scratch! This recipe uses ingredients found in most grocery stores and tastes fresh and restorative. See the full recipe below in our lovely stoneware teapot with hand stamped designs and bamboo handle and matching cups in fun colors.

Notes From the Road / Frankfurt 2015

Guten Tag!

After a short stop in our Portland design studio, we headed to beautiful Frankfurt, Germany for a quick buying trip filled with lots of inspiring city scenes. Frankfurt is one of the oldest cities in Germany, and because of its central location, a major hub for business and travel. The city is a mix of very old traditional architecture and modern high rise buildings. We enjoyed all of the street side markets, the convenient(albeit crowded) subway system, and the stylish and charming people that we met there.
