Sipsby is a new to me company that’s all about tea. Hailing out of Austin, TX this is a monthly tea discovery subscription box that curates to your personalized tea preferences. If you’re wary of trying out a box because you want to receive something you know you’ll like, the Sipsby signup includes a checklist of questions (its very simple but helpful!) such as preferred tea flavors, tea varieties (maybe you love green tea but don’t care for white tea), and so on. This keeps the element of surprise open and up to you!
Example, I selected that I prefer sweet, “dessert”, and health/wellness tea. I selected that I personally favor all types of tea leaves and non tea-leaves (tisanes) so that opened up my profile to be diverse. However, you can always retake your tea profile quiz if you want to shake things up or simply add more to your curations.
At the beginning of the year (roughly so) I select a word that will serve me through the year, standing for something I wish to invite and guide me. This year that word is rooted. It serves a purpose on a physical and metaphorical level.
I am truly motivated and enamored by passion. Feeling the spark, the fire of desire. However, it requires balance. It requires honing in with your voice and aligning with what makes you feel passionate, what lights up your spirit.
Rooted: 1. cause (a plant or cutting) to grow roots.
- establish deeply and firmly.
Ever since I saw the beautifully hued drinks that echo colors of gemstones and elusive unicorns, I knew I wanted to recreate them.
Drinks for me are a therapeutic routine.Whether its waking up early (or even creating them at night!) to brew a warm cup of coffee and topping it with spices and pink salt, pouring the creamy frothed milk as a finishing touch. I take pride in the aesthetic process and nutritional components, savoring the nuances of flavor and these stolen moments of reflection.
But I also enjoy playing with the rainbow, in the form of nature’s palettes. Consuming edible for me comes from a place of nourishment and creation – enjoying the process and seeking the arrangements. Contentment in what I’ve made (or being cognizant of what to do next time)
