Blueberry Walnut Cereal and White Tea

Good morning! Let's hope today is a better day for me! I was so glad to get to bed after the bummer of a day that I had yesterday.

I decided to skip the gym this morning, but I still woke up pretty early. It was nice having some quiet time to myself and hanging out at home until it was time to leave for work.

Breakfast today was 5 grain cereal with fresh blueberries and walnuts.


My mixture ended up a little on the "soupy" side. I guess I added too much water? Or maybe the blueberries added some extra moisture? I don't think I did anything different... it was still a scrumptious breakfast!



I received some Bentley's Ginger Peach White Tea as a shower gift, and I am trying it out right now. So far, so good! The flavor is an equal combination of ginger and peach, and the longer the tea bag seeps, the more "zip" the tea has to it. I'm a fan!


Bentley's White Tea - Ginger Peach Product Description

Hand picked pure white tea from ceylon. The Champagne of teas. White Tea, once brewed exclusively for China Royalty dating back to the Quing Dynasty in the 18th century, is now available to the connoisseur of tea packed in a convenient tea bag. This light golden tea comes from the same tea plant, Camellia Sinensis, as both black and green teas. Unlike these other teas, our 100% pure white tea contains a higher portion of buds to leaves and is harvested before the leaves open fully and are still covered by fine white hairs, thus giving it the name White Tea. It is rapidly steamed and air dried, producing a mild fresh flavor and natural sweetness. Because the tea must be carefully hand picked, only small amounts can be produced, making it rare and more expensive to produce than traditional teas. Because it is processed far less than black and green tea, its health benefits are far greater. White Tea contains 3 times as many cancer-fighting agents as other teas. These anti-oxidants, known as polyphenols, are also believed to strengthen the immune system, lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, and even fight fatigue. Known as the gentle tea, White Tea is primarily grown in China and India. A very small quantity is still made in Ceylon. We have procured all of the production of one of the finest tea estates in Ceylon so that can always enjoy our White Tea's mellow and delicate flavor that we call our Champagne of Teas. Pure Ceylon tea - packed in Sri Lanka.

Hi Tina, how do you make your oatmeal; using milk or water?? Thanks!! It looks great!

magpie said...

That tea looks so good! Have you ever tried cooking with tea? There's this book I saw at Border's the other day called "The Ultimate Tea Diet" and the guy uses it as flavoring in a bunch of things.

Tina said...

Katie,

I typically use water, but if I am in the mood for something different, I will use soy or hemp milk.

I've been meaning to ask what brand of buffalo sauce you use? Everyone I look at has HFCS in it, or is this just one of those products that usually has it in it?

Tina said...

Alisha,

I use Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce. I love it!
