Sip Your Day Away with this Drinkable Tea Calendar


Move over Folger’s Coffee, the best part of waking up is ripping off a tea bag from a calendar, dunking it in hot water, and gulping down some super rad brew. Totally has the same ring to it.

This tea calendar was designed by Hälssen & Lyon, a German based tea manufacturer, and distributed exclusively to select business partners of the company, which naturally makes us all want it more.

Made up of 365 days of brewable deliciousness, each day on the calendar is made up of “finely flavored tea leaves and pressed until wafer-thin”.

The directions to brew up today’s date are fairly straight forward.

1. Boil some water.

2. Tear off the date

3. Throw that bad boy into your cup of hot water

4. Watch that sucker brew itself up…

. . . into a nice little spot o’ tea.

5. Sit back and enjoy possibly the coolest cup of tea ever.

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to partake in this fancy way to make some tea, that is, unless some tea loving genius out there can figure out how to recreate this delicious calendar.

Until then, I’ll just sit here with my boring cup of Earl Grey. Hmph.

Anaheim, CA: Ho-Toy’s Chinese Food

Let me tell you about Ho-Toy’s Chinese food on St. College in Anaheim. Ho-Toy’s is the Chinese food spot that you wish your Chinese food spot was like. They give you more food than you know what to do with, it’s always fresh and hot, and is just all around amazing. If you blinked you’d probably miss this place, but if you enter the magic wonderland of Ho-Toy’s you will not be disappointed. Here is my last meal there; Orange chicken, BBQ chicken and about 2 pounds of chow mein. Thank you wonderful Chinese ladies that serve this up for me.


Creamy Candy Corn Ice Cream

I’m guessing there are going to be a lot of candy corn inspired desserts in the next few weeks, but why not, candy corn is awesome. In the spirit of Halloween, we have a wonderful creation: Creamy Candy Corn Ice Cream. I’ve had pumpkin pie ice cream and I know it’s amazing, but I can only imagine how good this is. Someone find me some of this stuff. (Thx FPD)


Domino’s Pizza Guy Delivers Despite Flood; $1,004 Tip

During my visit of Domino’s HQ a few days ago, a couple of their employees were telling me a story of one of their amazing delivery drivers and how he delivered in a flood, just so a woman can get her pizza fix. Reportedly, driver Caleb Hartsell departed from his East Bay Domino’s location to deliver 4 orders, only to turn onto a street that was covered with a foot and a half of water.
