Honey & Tea Tasting

BY CAILIN BURKE

Nothing new here — this post talks about matcha, again! … But for all of the matcha lattes in NYC, my favorite green drink is few and far between in Upstate New York (our hometown). I was looking up where I could find matcha in the area, and saw that Saratoga Tea & Honey had one on their menu! So there we went!

Before we grabbed a latte, we went straight to the back to see their “Honey Room.” It’s just how it sounds, a room with jars of honey everywhere! You can taste all of their varieties which was so fun! I love honey in my tea, yogurt, and smoothies, but for some reason don’t like to eat it plain — so I wasn’t jumping up and down at the chance to sample tons and tons of honey.

24! Woohooo! My 24th birthday just passed and I wanted to let you in on the festivities. Ever since we were little Cai and I decorate the house for each other and this year Cailin set up this awesome photo station with gold balloon letters.

Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course

BY CAILIN BURKE

We happened to be home for one day prior to our end of summer trip to the Berkshires (posts coming soon!), and were supposed to be packing for our trip. Except we suddenly remembered the Travers was happening that Saturday and that Triple Crown winner, American Pharaoh was going to be racing in it! Of course the race was sold out but we had just set our minds to going and were able to get 3 tickets the night before! We got there super early to avoid traffic and get a prime bench which let us have a spot all day to watch the races before Pharaoh came out.
