I had to go in to work today, and because I work on a hospital campus, I was a tad panicked (I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work from home). However, all went smoothly, and now I’m back home in my sweats with tea!

I was feeling a clove tea and didn’t want to use up the chai, since I have very little left. So, this was the only other tea in my cupboard with clove! I’ve had this one a fair amount over the years of purchasing New Moon and I do enjoy it. It’s very herbal-y, but still quite tasty. It’s fairly ginger-forward, with some cloves and hay right behind.

Yasss sweats. I’ve been in my flannel PJs during a virtual workshop all day. ;)

Courtney

Right! I am here for it! I’m not in flannel pj’s and a ridiculously oversized sweater. The best!

Courtney

Also, an all day workshop sounds like a lot!

jessiwrites

Oooooh, that sounds good. The name is bizarre, hahaha! I’m in a huge sweater and leggings with my super cozy felted wool slippers on and just made myself some tea, so I’m right there with you.

Courtney

Hahah isn’t it? I originally picked it up after Lex’s double wisdom tooth surgeries, so it all worked out!

Cozy clothes are the best.

Courtney

Also, I have more of this one to share jessi, I just ran out of swap bags hahah! More are being ordered today!

@Courtney – All day is definitely too much. And it’s basically an orientation, so sooooo boring.

jessiwrites

Yaaaaay, that’s exciting news! When did she have her wisdom teeth pulled? I had all mine done last year and it was not fun – I definitely needed some surgical recovery tea.

Courtney

Hers were years ago now — before we left AB (maybe 2017?). She actually ended up having two separate surgeries for it to work with insurance. Craziness! The tea made it much better!

jessiwrites

Ugh, that’s brutal. Did she look like she got in a fight? Stefan was scared to go out in public with me after my surgery, because it for sure looked like I was a battered woman, hahaha!

Courtney

Hahaha oh no! She didn’t look too bad, but it was definitely not her normal face!

Bio

My partner and I live with our bunnies: Callie and Ben, and cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens.

Likes:
Raspberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
