One of the signature items I carry in my purse is my David’s Tea teal Timolino and I’ve been using that since 2013. Last Christmas my friend’s and I were trying to use a timer to take a group photo and my thermos was left on the table and appeared in the photos. #whitneysthermos became a hashtag. So when I received David’s Tea new Tea Press, which launched on August 15th, I was so stoked to have an upgrade!!
For all those who know me personally, I complain more about going to the gym than actually going to the gym. Yet, I seek out carbs, sweets, and meat like kids seeking for that golden ticket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. When I was offered to try SkinnyMint Ultimate Teatox I was sold by reading the words “kick that bloat.” Four years ago, I was constantly bloated and had a heck ton of stomach issues thanks to the little f*cker called H. Pylori bacteria, and eating hasn’t really been the same since. Tea has been one of my long time go-to’s for helping my stomach to calm down from any fatty foods or indigestion.
Happy New Year! Happy 2017 to you all! One of my plans on Dec 31, 2016 was to do a post on goals and what not for January 1, 2017 but that plan flew out of the door; breaking resolutions (#SortOfAResolution) already! But holy, I had the worst sleep pattern for the past few nights took a toll on my brain and there wasn’t enough coffee to set me straight. Hope you all had a great holiday!
I haven’t even really thought about what I want to do this year (can it be like, Dec, 33rd 2016 or something?!) BUT, there was some exciting things that happened last year that I haven’t shared on here. For example, The Urban Tea Merchant closed its doors and launched TWG Tea, the first North American Tea Salon & Boutique in Vancouver.
Cold weather is hot drinks weather and it just feels so good to be wrapped in the warmest of knits, and hands around a piping hot drink that doesn’t taste like water. One of my favourite afternoon tea spots, The Urban Tea Merchant, is temporarily closed for renovation but they do have a pop up shop at Nordstrom in Pacific Centre. I was invited to their media event and visit their shop a couple of weeks ago and got a sneak peek of some upcoming new teas (with a macaron to nibble on!)
You read right, today’s Munchy Monday is about a teatox…and you might be thinking, really Whitney?! Don’t you drink an unhealthy amount of lattes and junk food? Yup, and still am IN conjunction with testing out this Purgo Tea 14 Day Teatox (currently $29.99). Coming from someone who used to take antibiotics for H.Pylori (don’t EVER get it!)I still get stomache aches/bloating as easy as snapping my fingers, so I was interested to see how this fare in making me feel all around better.
