Hồng coconut wax candle by Sạch (3.6 oz)
Black Pepper • Lavender • Coconut • Magnolia
This candle is named for Sạch co-founder Kevin’s mom, and is inspired by her love of purple flowers and the island of Phú Quốc, where her family lives among the island's coconut trees and black pepper farms. We swoon for this candle's balanced spice and floral notes, which smell like the perfect kind of tea break: relaxing and invigorating. Plus we love how much care and attention Tram and Kevin devote to every detail of a Sạch candle.
Pistachio + Cherry Nougat by Bakers Bench (6 pieces, 40g)
Jen creates all the treats on display at Bakers Bench in LA's Chinatown, from the flaky (vegan!) croissants to the cookies, puddings, candies and more. What's the common thread, apart from her expert touch? Everything showcases gems from SoCal farms and markets whenever possible. This nougat is no exception. Sweetened with local wildflower honey from Energy Bee Farm, studded with tart dried cherries and crunchy pistachios from the Santa Barbara Pistachio Company, and rolled into bite-size morsels, they're the perfect little jewels to add some sweetness to your tea time.
Gu's Grapefruit Chews (candied grapefruit peel) by Gu Grocery (56g)
Jess plucked local tree-ripened Oro Blanco grapefruit, blanched the peels, and lightly sweetened them with a touch of organic cane sugar. Pop one in your mouth to be transported to a sun-dappled California citrus grove. Pro tip: alternate bites of grapefruit chews and nougat for a 1-2 punch of (refreshingly fragrant) bitter and sweet. Find more local and imported treasures in the Gu Grocery shop here!
Please store all of these in a cool, dry place. Gu's Grapefruit Chews can be refrigerated.
