💫 SHINING THE SPOTLIGHT
Adrian's Favorites + Tips and Tricks
🌿 🌿 🌿
This month we are shining the spotlight on Adrian, the assistant store manager of our Cloudcroft location. Adrian has been a part of the OBTC fam for almost 3 years now and she brings such a light to the tea shop. She oversees the presentation and displays in the the store and makes sure that her team members are healthy and happy. Her goofy, playful energy is always much appreciated, especially when things get hectic! She reminds us to slow down, soak in the the good times, and prioritize your mental health when needed.
READ MORE ON ADRIAN'S FAVORITE TEAS AND HONEY
Her favorite tea is our Banana Bread Coffee Pu Erh! This blend is decadent with subtle coffee and cinnamon flavor and is reminiscent of yes, gooey banana bread. It is energizing for the body and mind, supports immunity and longevity, and is great for metabolism and digestion.
Adrian sips on this blend allll day. At work, while running errands, and while doing housework.
Adrian recommends serving Banana Bread Coffee Pu Erh hot, with extra frothed cream or coconut milk, and a dollop of honey. She also recommends adding a shot of espresso if you want an extra boost of caffeine!
At Old Barrel Tea Co. we celebrate and nourish our health in all ways. We asked Adrian what her favorite way to practice self-care is and this is what she said:
"Exercising, sleeping, and eating in no particular order.
Just make sure you get enough of all three!"
ADRIAN'S FAVORITE HONEY:
🐝 SALT CEDAR HONEY HONEY 🐝
earthy ∙ malted beer ∙ hickory ∙ citrus undertones
Adrian's favorite honey to sweeten teas with (especially Banana Bread Coffee Pu Erh) is our Salt Cedar honey! Bee hives were carefully placed in areas where salt cedar commonly grows and voila!
Salt Cedar honey is complementary to darker teas such as pu erh and black teas.
3 OTHER TEAS ADRIAN RECOMMENDS:
pronounced ginger ∙ cinnamon spice ∙ robust
floral ∙ creamy ∙ bergamot citrus
comforting ∙ subtle spice ∙ creamy
