If you're searching for your new favorite fall tea, look no further than Harney & Sons "Hot Cinnamon Sunset." This "remarkably assertive tea" is all about the spiciness, with a hint of citrus to round out the flavor. If you are a fan of chai teas or hot spiced ciders, you'll love this blend. It [...]
This week I finished "Wild." The beautifully written memoir by Cheryl Strayed tells her roller coaster story of her multi-month hike along the gorgeous Pacific Crest Trail — as well as the events that inspired her journey. The book starts out with 20-something Cheryl reflecting on her life with her mother — discussing her childhood [...]

This week's cutest of the week, from The Pet Collective, involves some puppies getting their license to drive trucks. Does it get any cuter than this?
Happy Holidays from Life's a Cup of Tea! Watch these kittens and puppies get in the Christmas spirit, running around and playing, then meeting Santa. There's too much adorableness packed into this video.
