Mint Matcha

Expand product description

As matcha enthusiasts, we’re certainly partial to a traditionally brewed green tea, but understand that there isn’t always time for the full ceremony. Of all the bottled iterations we’ve tried, there’s no doubt that MatchaBar’s mint matcha is our favorite. With a bold flavor and a refreshing twist, it’s available in packs of 12 (10-ounce bottles) and provides that combination of caffeine and L-Theanine that matcha-drinkers appreciate.

Barnana

Organic Chocolate Banana Brittle

$10

Expand product description

Barnana has come to make a name for themselves as a brand “upcycling” organic bananas that don’t have the perfect look but taste perfectly fine. While minimizing food waste, they’ve also developed a series of delicious banana-based snacks. Our personal favorite, Organic Banana Brittle is made of thin, crisp laters of the fruit and chocolate. It’s also USDA Organic, non-GMO project verified, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free—meaning it can be enjoyed by just about everyone.

Jonathan Adler

Eve Serving Set

$128

Expand product description

Sculpted in Jonathan Adler’s Soho studio, these hand-shaped serving utensils are then cast in solid brass and finished with a food-safe lacquer. Little sculptures in their own right, these table tools serve up a bit of surrealism as they sparkle. In the most literal sense, these are hands ready to serve—but they should avoid acidic foods and be washed by hand.

Masters of the unusual, Hendrick’s Gin has released a handmade cocktail garnisher. The metal piece slices two cucumbers simultaneously into the ideal 1/8 wheel—all with the turn of a crank.

One little, and very easy, step we can all take to lessen the waste, pollution and eight million tons of plastic trash that ends up in our oceans is adopting reusable straws. This set of four stainless steel straws (two curved, two straight) are BPA-, phthalate-, lead and toxin-free, and will never rust. They even come with a little brush to make cleaning them extra simple.

Mariona Vendrell + Albert Canela

Succés La Cuca de Llum

$20

Expand product description

Catalonia (on the northeastern edge of the Iberian Peninsula) is perhaps best known for Cava. This wine, Succés La Cuca de Llum, also uses the Trepat grape found in Cava, but here it results in a bright red. It’s fresh, and a little funky (or “dusty”) and delightfully mineral-y. That said, it’s not a watery, weak red—it’s vibrant. Bonus: it’s a natural wine, organically farmed from 20-47-year-old vines, and is great for sipping during transitional seasons.
