Perfect cappuccino at Tutta Bella's in Seattle

Favorite Things: Coffee and Tea

Okay, so I wanted to share my favorite teas and coffees with everyone.  Try them out and let me know what you think of them.

I love coffee, hence the name Caffe Girl.  My husband, being italian, loves Illy espresso medium roast.  We also, like Seattle's Best, Henry's Blend beans.  For a local roaster, I like Caffe Vita in Seattle(Caffe Del Sol and Luna blends are nice.)

Okay, for tea, I'm in the holiday mode and I love Harney and Sons, White Christmas it has a vanilla taste to it and is just perfect for colder weather.  I also, love Celestial Seasonings holiday blend teas.  One of my favorites is Sugar Cookie, again a nice vanilla flavor to it. Oh, and I can't forget my ultimate favorite tea, indian chai!!  That is heaven on earth!

Well, that's my ramblings for now.  Let me know if you try any of these and what you think of them.
Happy sipping!

Autumn in Savannah

Okay, so this is my first attempt at blogging, but I have a lot to talk about so I'll give it a try.  Well, I'm so excited to be back in the South.  I love the beach, I am a total beach bum and I love historic Savannah.  I can't wait to go on some ghost tours this weekend.  I'll let y'all know if I see any spirits.  I just moved to the area from Washington State.  Beautiful state, but I've always been a southern girl at heart.  I would love to hear from people who have lived in the south and could share their favorite places to eat, shop, visit.  I am an explorer and love seeing new places and meeting new people.  I would love to hear from you!  Ciao for now.
