I love tea, especially in the wintertime. It gets so cold up here in Canada that drinking tea has become a daily ritual for me! Green teas, black teas, white teas... I love all varieties but have been especially obsessed with the Hōjicha (Houjicha) (ほうじ茶) that my dad brought back from Japan. It's a roasted green tea that has a lower amount of caffeine and is often used as an after-dinner tea to help aid with digestion in Japan. Made from the leaves, this brown looking tea tastes nutty and is a good accompaniment to sweets. I prefer its mild flavour as I don't generally like bold tastes, especially when I'm cooped up inside reading!
I was wandering around my local supermarket and noticed something new in the aisle. I've been trying to find a more natural body cream as I had just run out of my Vaseline Shea Butter and absolutely loved the consistency, potency and smell of the product. By wandering the health and beauty section of the store, I thought that I'd find something natural yet similar to what I already know I like. That's when I was introduced to the brand, Giddy Yoyo.
