For those of you that know our family, you know we LOVE food! We especially love to see how other cultures enjoy food and prepare meals. While American dishes tend to have many ingredients, complex flavors, and are usually in some capacity fusion, we love the simplicity and indulgent nature of authentic Italian dishes which tend to rely heavily on the quality of the ingredients vs the complexity of the flavor. This very simple pasta dish is inspired by the small, family-owned Italian restaurants we've visited when traveling through Italy but it has a distinct OBTC twist: it is made with Tea Seed Oil!

Hello! My name is Maggie! I am a Marine Scientist that was moved to the New Mexican desert with my family by the Air Force! That move was never in my plan, even in my wildest dreams, and I felt lost in the desert for awhile! Meeting the founding owners of Old Barrel Tea Company and falling in love with the store allowed me to find an oasis in the desert! I had no idea what loose leaf tea was, but now I believe in this company and the product! I hope that I can extend some of the love and knowledge with all of our followers and readers!
