Cassandra's Review- The first thing I noticed was how heavy this is, but it is very sturdy and solid.  The main issue I would say if the foot rest being so rough and sharp. I like to rest my bare feet and this has to be used with shoes.  The pad surface feels like sandpaper.  Of course if you work in an office, this would be great for the height advantage and if you're shorter.

Choice Organic Tea recipes

June is National Iced Tea Month and CHOICE ORGANIC TEAS is excited to share delicious, fun, and creative iced tea recipes with you all month long. 

To kick off Iced Tea Month right, here are easy steps to brewing perfectly balanced iced tea:

Start any cup of tea by boiling fresh, filtered water.

For best results, black and herbal teas should be steeped with water right off the boil (around 212°).

Green, white, or oolong teas are best brewed with water just before it's boiled (180-190°).

For every 8 oz (1 cup) serving of iced tea you wish to brew, you'll want one tea bag or 1 tsp (2-3 g) loose leaf.

Make a double strength concentrate by steeping the tea bag or tea leaves in half the amount of water as you would for hot tea, for an 8 oz cup you'll brew a 1/2 cup (4 oz) concentrate.

Now, steep your concentrate! Here is a quick guide to steep times:

Black: 3-4 min, Herbal: 5 min, Green: 2-3 minutes, Oolong: 2-3 min, White: 1-3 min.

See chart below for a great reference for steep time and temperatures.

Once your tea has steeped, remove the tea bag or strain the leaves with a sieve or brewing basket, then add cold or tepid water to create 1 full cup of tea.

Pour over ice, and enjoy! If you like, you can add your favorite sweetener or a twist of lemon.

More Iced Tea Tips:

To make a stronger cup, double your tea bags or increase the amount of tea leaves used, not the brew time, as this can affect the flavor and increase bitterness.
To prevent cloudiness, never pour hot tea directly over ice. Adding tepid water first helps to bring the water temperature down slowly.

Will you be cooling down this summer with iced teas? Share your favorite recipes, photographs, and stories with Choice Organic Teas on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Cassandra's review-  the book is set to give some heartbreak within its pages, but the characters are written well and I believe the author put a lot emotion in his writing. The book is clean in that I would not mind reading it to my family out loud although the older crowd might enjoy it more.

The Wicked Witch of the West may have been defeated but it’s not long before a new villain emerges and threatens the magical Land of Oz! Only Tom and Jerry’s brilliant antics are clever enough to take on this new adversary. When the Gnome King and his army surface from beneath Oz and capture the Good Witch, the wizard turns to Tom, Jerry and Dorothy for help. He brings them back to Oz to help stop the evil monarch, who has threatened to take control of Emerald City. Having wreaked havoc throughout Oz, the Gnome King and his army need one thing to finalize their conquest – Dorothy’s ruby slippers! It’s up to Tom and Jerry to use their quick wits and clever schemes to save Oz.

Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry emerged during Hollywood’s golden age of animation and became one of the most popular cartoon series in existence.

Jerry however, is clever and quick on his feet, thus ensuring that Tom hardly ever manages to catch him.
