Maria Schur is adding something new to climbing: smiles.(Photo: Madi Carlson) “Historically, I’ve hated hills. But what are you going to do? Ride around every single hill?”— Maria Schur When it comes to bicycling, Portlander Maria Schur has morphed from hill hater to hill lover. And now, her personal journey has led her to spread that love to others. Maria is Portland’s hill-climbing ambassador.

Greenway upgrades will connect Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood to Springwater path

A new paved path is coming to this gravel section of SE 87th to open up a connection to the Springwater Corridor, currently hidden behind those bushes.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) The Springwater Corridor path is vital infrastructure — especially for people who live in southeast Portland neighborhoods where there are precious few safe places to ride and most of the through streets are wide and dangerous arterials. That’s why any project that makes it easier for people to connect to the ...

Apple Cinnamon Hot Toddy

An alternative name for this Apple Cinnamon Hot Toddy could be “the easiest hot toddy ever” or maybe “spiked hot apple cider.” It’s just good. Simple, delicious, and warming in more ways than one. You get it, it’s a hot cocktail. Let’s do this. This is a simple three ingredients plus garnish, so as you could probably guess the quality of those few ingredients matters. I especially think the cinnamon tea matters. Here is my current favorite: If you’ve never tried Harney and Sons hot cinnamon tea,...

Tea Processing Step: Oxidation

What is Oxidation? Oxidation refers to a series of chemical reactions that result in the browning of tea leaves and the production of flavor and aroma compounds in finished teas. Depending on the type of tea being made, oxidation is either prevented altogether or deliberately initiated, controlled and then stopped. Much of the oxidation process revolves around polyphenols, particularly the enzymes polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase. When the cells inside tea leaves are damaged and the components...

Contributor Spotlight: Hang Out with Kristen, Robin, and Tasha!

Confession: I have a love/hate relationship with these Contributor Spotlight posts. I adore getting to know the women behind the words of (in)courage — the deep, the unexpected, the mundane — I love it all! Even though I have the privilege of serving as Community Manager and knowing our amazing team of writers, I still learn something new about each friend every month! Now, hate is a strong word I don’t like using, but these monthly get-to-know-ya’s stir up a certain level of frustration and dis...

Some Intermediate-Level Ideas About Tea – Part 1

Related to the social media theme, I tend to like to talk in places where people are newer to tea because I can help people more there.  The “expert” groups are nice for a different kind of reference and discussion. Even in those places it often works out that a newcomer who really isn’t very far along the experience curve can help prompt really good discussion with questions. Here I’d like to explore some ideas from a middle ground, the kinds of things people pretty far through a learning cu...

Blast From the Past: Time for moving on

Coffee and I had an ugly divorce. “Bad for you,” the doctor said, “Too much caffeine for your heart. Try green tea.” Rather than marvel that a trained Medicine Man was endorsing tea, I grieved. Suffered. Woes of unrequited love. Anger. Denial. Deal-making. The trappings of my failed marriage were lined up on the counter: grinder; espresso maker; the finest muslin filters. A dozen message mugs. Half-empty bags of beans. All victims of a relationship turned sour. My first dates with tea were blin...

DaySpring Sales and My New Amazon Page!

The holidays officially begin this week—Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! Before we fully digest our turkey and pecan pie, Black Friday sales kick off the shopping season, gathering steam like a fast-moving train on a collision course with Christmas. I hope to handle my shopping early and well so I can slow down and relish the season.

Chalkboard-Painted Tea Tins

Though it’s not cheap, we are big fans of Harney and Sons vanilla comoro tea. ($5+ 5+ for a tin at Target. But if you compare that to, say, the cost of a Starbucks drink, it seems much more affordable.). I kind of hate to throw these tins away because they seem so reusable.Brought to you by: Frugal Focus

30 Gifts For Your Introvert Friend Who Just Wants To Be Alone

By definition, an introvert is someone who tends to turn their attention inwards to their own thoughts, and who tends to prefer their own company or the company of a small group of friends, as opposed to interacting with large groups of people.Contrary to popular belief, not all of us introverts are shy. Many of us can be, though shyness and introversion aren't interchangeable terms. Nor do all of us hate talking to people, though many of us might hate small talk. In fact, a lot of us love inte...

Why 'Transactors' Might Get Better Mortgage Terms Than 'Revolvers'

You may never have heard the terms transactor or revolver in relation to your credit habits. But if you're hoping to qualify for a mortgage someday, your credit-paying habits, viewed over time, could be used by lenders to estimate how likely it is you'll repay your loan. This could make a difference in the terms you're offered, say experts. Simply put, transactors are those who pay more than the minimum due, or the entire balance due, on their credit accounts each month. Revolvers, on the other ...

S. Dakota governor: Renaming peak will cause confusion

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s governor says a federal decision to rename Harney Peak, the state’s tallest, will cause “unnecessary expense and confusion.” Gov.

18 gorgeous views of South Dakota

IT’S A SHAME how the Midwest gets pigeonholed as “flyover country.” Many people probably picture endless farmland crisscrossed by rural roads with questionable cell service. That may be true of some parts of the region, but certainly not of South Dakota’s Black Hills and Badlands. What you’ll find here is rugged, diverse terrain reminiscent of the Great Smoky Mountains one moment and the painted deserts of the Southwest in another. Here the wildlife roams free, rocks form cathedrals into the sky...
