Tamarind Fusion Granola Lab Granola – Value  $9

Matriz Valenciano Paella Rice from Spain – Value $15

I’m so excited to make Paella! Gourmet spotting included a recipe for Paella with our seafood (it’s like they knew I don’t like seafood!)

Pu’er Tea from Yunnan, China – Value ?

Superior Saffron from Spain – Value $20

I thought I had seen every tea there was thanks to subscription boxes  – but I was wrong! Pu’er is a variety of post-fermented tea where the tea leaves undergo a microbial fermentation process after they are dried and rolled.

Also, I’m so glad they included Saffron – it’s necessary for the paella and super pricey!
