Tea for two...or just you...

If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated; it will cool you;
if you are depresses, it will cheer you;
if you are exhausted, it will calm you
(William Gladstone)

There's just something about the soothing nature of Tea.  Perfect for lazy summer days and perfect for a cold night out to sooth and relax you.  Our teas here fit exactly what you're looking for!

For a cold night out and you're wanting to warm yourself up try our Instant Russian (Spice) Tea.  Nothing like a little cinnamon and cloves to warm the soul.

For a long hot day and you need something to cool off what better than our Raspberry or Peach Tea which also comes in decaf.

What better way to fend the blues but with something cherry?  Cherry=Cheery!  Try our Cherry Tea to put a smile on your face!

My perfect way to calm down after a long hard day?  A big mug of Chai Tea.  Just the smell along is relaxing.  everyone has their own way of making it but I prefer mine (hot or cold) with milk and sugar or honey.  It just so soothing!

Let's have a tea party today!  Order two bags of tea (any flavor) and receive 10% off you order (excluding shipping fees). This week only!!

Email me at Latina Gourmet today!

The "Latina" Gourmet Cupboard will be there to take orders and book shows!! As well as Torta Dulces!

Here's the flyer:

Torta Dulces: Cakesicles, Piesicles and Rolly Balls

Newest venture that seems to be a huge hit so far!  I love to cook and bake and all things in the kitchen (except for dishes! YUCK)  So thanks to my brother who thought I needed a new project I am now owner of Torta Dulces home of Cakesicles, Piesicles and Rolly Balls!  This is something that I truly believe in as well as my Gourmet Cupboard, because honestly I'm a flight person and very fly by the seat of my pants and if it doesn't keep my interest for more than a week it isn't worth doing! 

And now to the even better news!  Torta Dulces now officially has a WEBSTORE!  That's right!  Thanks so much to for this!! I am so excited about this and gaining the exposure and being able to serve more people these delectable treats!!  Head on over and check it out at and while your at it place and order today!  We've got a new flavor in the works...Cherry Supreme!!  I cannot wait to try this one...Hopefully it'll be finished tonight and I can present it to the world!
