Euphorium inspires the poet in our customers!

by Euphorium Bakery 24. January 2012 09:57

The following excerpt is from a poem written by one of our customers who visited the Belsize Park Euphorium Bakery several times over Christmas whilst staying in London with her son. She has promised to include it in her next poetry book, which will be sold to raise money for her local hospital. We'll blog again when it is published...

Euphoria

I find shelter from the wind and rain

In the Euphorium bakery and cafe

Of London's Belsize park

Tempted by captivating cakes

Tantalising apple tarts

The smell of freshly baked artisan bread

An iconic warm croissant with melted butter

Enticed me in here today

I order a cup of coffee

Served with a large dash of charm and style

By an eastern European called Elena

I wish she had time to tell me her story

...

Tea, possibly something to do with "Matcha"

by Euphorium Bakery 2. August 2011 15:52

Following on from our coffee tasting, Teapigs gave us an introduction to different teas, explaining the differences between green, black and red teas, before allowing us to try a number of delicious iced teas, the most popular being the Liquorice & Mint, loved even by those who don't usually like liquorice, which included myself! Once we'd all enjoyed the iced teas Teapigs then introduced us all to Matcha, for many guests the first time of hearing about this superhero amongst teas! For those that don't know Matcha is a super concentrated green tea powder that’s packed with antioxidants and nutrients.

Teapigs genuine matcha comes from the renowned Nishio region in Japan, where the tea leaves are grown under cover to produce lots of amino acids and chlorophyll (the bright green good stuff). The leaves are then dried very slowly and ground by granite to a very fine powder, which is then packed and sealed immediately, so as to lock in all the nutrients. This little Superhero contains 137 times the antioxidants of regular green tea (wow!). Like all green tea, matcha naturally contains caffeine but, unlike coffee, it works together with two important amino acids to give you a sustained energy lift, whilst keeping you calm and providing a healthy metabolism boost. So next time you need a little lift, grab yourself a packet of Matcha, stir a teaspoon into a glass of fruit juice or hot water… and just for good measure, make sure you have one of Euphorium's excellent baked items to complement the experience.
