Market Spice Tea – Because There's an Adventurer in all of us

Written by Ryan Fyfe

By now we’ve all heard of green tea and probably even read aboutrepparttar health benefits that it has and lots of other information. I want to take amount and put all of this nonsense aside and tell you about a tea that is something to get excited about: Market Spice Tea.

Market Spice originated from Seattle’s Historic Pike Place market in 1911. Market spice is made from sweet huckleberries, which is what gives Market Spice it’s “unlike anything else” taste. Don’t be confused with Huckleberry Finn how ever I’m sure if Tom Sawyer was to drink tea it would be Market Spice. Only Market Spice packsrepparttar 138598 type of punch that an adventurer like Tom Sawyer would be satisfied with. I’ve heard it compared to Orange on Steroids. How ever you look atrepparttar 138599 Tea, The taste is something else and leads to a simply unforgettable experience.

From Prix Fixe to Cold Tea: A Glossary of Popular (and Obscure) Restaurant Terms

An Offbeat Glossary of Restaurant Terms

Everyone knows what a bistro is...right? And a la carte is a term that even a fifth grader knows...well, maybe not. And what exactly does smart casual mean? There are so many words and terms inrepparttar English language that are taken for granted, including those used inrepparttar 138440 restaurant industry. In a public service to diners from Boston to Bakersfield, Boston's Hidden Restaurants presents a glossary of useful, as well as totally useless, restaurant terms. (Note: This page is part of our restaurant features section.)

A La Carte A term used by more upscale, expensive restaurants that means each item is separate. If a restaurant says that bread and water are a la carte, flee as quickly as you can.

Bar Pizza A type of pizza served in bars (duh!) that is smaller in diameter (usually about 10 inches) and greasier than pizzas found in restaurants or sub shops. Bar pizza tends to taste better with beer, and MUCH better after many beers.

Bistro A small restaurant, usually informal, that typically has a decent wine list. If a place that calls itself a bistro does not have a wine list, it is simply known as a "small restaurant."

Captain An employee at a restaurant who supervisesrepparttar 138441 waitstaff and typically seats patrons. These people used to be called "hosts," but for some reason, many restaurants now call them "captains." Some restaurants include a place onrepparttar 138442 bill for tipping captains. If you see this, flee as quickly as you can.

Chef Typically,repparttar 138443 chief cook of a restaurant staff. Don't ever call a chef a cook; he or she will not like that and may put some extra MSG in your food.

Cold Tea A term used, usually late at night, that means beer. This term is fairly common in Chinese restaurants that stay open afterrepparttar 138444 bars close. The serving of cold tea is often illegal and unethical, and we at Boston's Hidden Restaurants do not condonerepparttar 138445 ordering of cold tea. But our view on that may change from weekend to weekend.
