My friend Bridget wanted to get together to gossip about the Gossip and re-watch the episode of Watch What Happens Live where Andy Cohen gives Beth Ditto a corn dog bouquet a few times (I still have this saved on my DVR). Bridge and I decided to film our gossip sesh as an episode of the Lesbian Tea Basket! We rate a Rooibus Mint iced tea by Rishi and have some cinnamon rolls, too.
Friends, I am so pleased to debut this episode of the Lesbian Tea Basket. My first adventure reviewing a tea from David’s Tea that I brewed at home. Since the tea is from a Canadian company and actually called Oh Canada! (because of the maple content) I decided to ask my beloved Grandmother to be my special guest.
We put out a full tea set and my mom video taped it. Grandmother is one of my femme icons and has taught me a lot about being exactly as glamorous (or, as I would say it, as glitter) as I feel like being regardless of how many people try to rush you to get ready in the morning.
Me and Grandmother at High Tea a couple of years ago. I did an episode of the Lesbian Tea Basket about it!
My bestie Jacqueline was kind enough to lend her incredibly baller professional video editing skills to the finished product and here we have my review of Oh Canada! and some cute anecdotes from my Grandmother.
Spoiler alert: Grandmother loved the tea so much she asked me to leave it at her house in Palm Springs, CA.
You can order Oh Canada! from David’s Tea online or visit one of their shiny teal tea stores throughout the US and Canada. I am a big fan of the Park Slope one, but also have made friends with the tea folks at their Upper East Side and West Village locations.
You can find all of the episodes of the Lesbian Tea Basket in this playlist on my You Tube Channel!
