Happy holigays to you! On Black Friday I happened to need to restock my stash of loose leaf decaf black tea, AND Adagio has my favorite loose leaf flavored black teas AND I got an email for a sale, SO I went for it. And because I spent $25 I got a free Christmas teas sampler, a $9 value. Plus free shipping!
I love to show my outfit from the video–this is the sweater I’m wearing. A vintage cardigan I got at a thrift store in Columbus, OH. The photo was taken on Christmas Eve AKA my birthday last year–we delivered meals for God’s Love We Deliver. If you’re in NYC I highly recommend this service activity, it was super heartwarming work.
In this episode of the Lesbian Tea Basket, I review the Christmas teas sampler! I also used those teas to serve festive iced tea at my birthday party over the weekend.
I hope you enjoy this episode! And if you’re interested in buying some Adagio teas, you can use this coupon code for $5 off your first purchase: 3189993374
(I get 10 frequent cups points for every person who uses it. You know I love a coupon.)
All of the Christmas teas reviewed are caffeinated black teas, but all distinct flavors. I enjoyed!
I don’t know why there’s no Hannukah or Solstice teas but I’ve sent them an email. Edit to add: They DO have a Hanukkah tea! I was spelling it incorrectly.
While I cast about looking for someone to collaborate on the sound editing for FemmeCast, I've been a little antsy to make media. I was struck with the divine spirit to share my recent passion for tea and my enduring passion for lesbianism in the form of totally DIY, low-tech videos. Mostly I am just frustrated with how hard it is to determine whether or not tea is any good from the box.
There are four episodes so far, with more to come as inspiration continues. I've instituted a rating system and occasionally have guest hosts.
So grab a cup of tea, cozy up to your computer and enjoy!
In the last couple of years as I've learned what is really important to me and learned to let go of what isn't, how to say no to things and how to check in with myself about what I am doing and how I am doing it. Moreover, I've learned how to identify for myself what is important to me, how to turn off all the voices of what I "should" be doing or who I "should" become, what my body "should" look like or how much I "should" love myself even when it's hard. I got tired of shoulding and wanted to instead be living and enjoying my life. Thus, I have created a practice whereby I check in with myself about my priorities. I try to do this every week, but basically it comes up for me when I feel off balance.
In sum, the Palace Hotel High Tea relies heavily on ambience and bells and whistles and their tea is good but it isn't all that. Their teas could be better served and blended, but the whole menu and concept is pretty great. It's not cheap at $45 a pop, but it was a really great experience and I say if you're visiting from out of town or you have a crowd of family in from out of town it would be really worth it.
