March Wrap-Up! (It’s already April??!)

Is anyone else surprised that it’s already a fourth of the way through 2016? I forgot to do a wrap up for February, but I won’t make that mistake this month! Here’s a summation of everything that’s been on BB&GT in the last 31 days.

Teas I’ve been Obsessed With

  • IMG_3667Citron Tea with Honey: I picked this up from my local Asian market. It also goes well with my ginger tea.
  • Freya’s Spiced Apricot: I got this from Calabash, a tea shop near Howard University. Mix it with a tea called Kiss Me Guido!
  • The Republic of Tea’s Vanilla Almond: I don’t drink black tea, but I used this tea to flavor a vanilla almond buttercream frosting a few weeks back. It was GREAT– all I did was steep it heavily in the heavy cream that I was using to make the frosting.
  • The Spice & Tea Exchange’s Coconut Oolong: It smells just like coconut, which got me right in the mood for spring. There’s a groupon for them here!




There’s been a lot going on this month, right? I think I’ve finally hit my stride with this blog. Let me know in the comments if there’s anything else you’d like to see!



  1. Some amazing books you’ve posted about this month. I am on the waiting list at the library for Writing My Wrongs. I can’t wait to read it.

    Also – vanilla almond buttercream – yum!

  3. Such an amazing list. Have a great April. 🙂


  4. OMG, the tea buttercream thing is genius! I keep meaning to try your tea suggestions, now I have to try that, too 🙂

    1. Funnily enough, it was really because I’d run out of vanilla extract. This was a great little substitute!

  5. What was your favorite book out of all the ones you read this month? 🙂 and yess, before we know it, it’ll be 2017!


    1. Awakening Kali and Citizen. But Citizen could have more to do with the fact that we discussed it as a whole book club. I get more out of books that way.
