Ahhh, Spring. You bring a sigh of relief and a warm fuzzy feeling to our very being.
Here in Chicago, spring has been making itself known. The tulips are in bloom and the sun has been shining, all inspiring us here at Greenheart to celebrate (given, we are a rather joyous bunch)
Check out some images of our delicious spread below:
Tin filled with some fragrant Cinnamon sticks... perfect for soaking in chai! (checkout our recipe below)

Laura, our operations manager and resident rain man..she is a whiz at numbers. She also looks pretty awesome wearing our Andean Collection necklace.
Greenhearts from scratch hot chai recipe:
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup Half & Half (or non dairy alternative)
1 full teaspoon black tea
1 pod cardamom
2 pea sized pieces of fresh ginger (mulched)
1-2 big size whole black pepper
1/8 cinnamon stick
On a hard piece of paper or cutting board, crush all of the spices together. You can do this in advance and store in an airtight tin or container... although I prefer to make fresh and soak in my milk/water mixture in advance.
Add spices & tea and bring milk and water to a boil for approximately 15 minutes, stirring consistently.
Strain and serve, add honey to taste.
Makes 1 cup.
