Earth Fare Opens a Tea Room

For years I have been a sort of tea snob, always getting the latest and greatest new teas. Now you can purchase all you favorites at Earth Farewhere tea has it’s own room. Recently, Earth Fare, West Ashley, opened a room dedicated to tea and all it’s accessories. Earth Fare always providing the best in health and wellness for our community has done it again. Tea is not only yummy on a cold day but provides a plethora of health benefits. The staff is educated and helpful, ready to answer your questions about tea. If you have been curious to try something other than sweet tea stop by Earth Fare and step out of your comfort zone with some yummy Chai or Jasmine Green Tea and you can begin to reap the benefits of tea. If you are have little ones check out the Teddy Bear Tea Party on March 22 at 11 am. Children are invited to bring their favorite Teddy Bear and come try some kid friendly teas. Call to reserve your spot!

Taco Boy, Well Worth The Trip!

I know that driving from Mount Pleasant all the way to Taco Boy on Folly Beach is not the "greenest" way to get a taco, but it is worth the trip. About once a month my family of five pile into our Volvo wagon and head to the beach for tacos, chips and pico and we enjoy every bite! Recently I learned that Taco Boy will be opening a downtown location and I am thrilled beyond words. I also learned that unbenonced to me Taco Boy is a "green" restaurant, from using recycled materials in their building process to growing their own chili peppers. The menu offers great vegetarian dishes as well. With an atmosphere great for kids and adults alike it is hard to pass up, so next time you are craving some queso and chips head to the beach and stop by Taco Boy!
