I don't know what to say about the recent horrific events so I'm sharing Masai Ujiri's opinion piece on racism. It's also worth checking out these links on ways you can take action and be a better ally:
- Anti-racism resources
- Beyond the Hashtag: How to Take Anti-Racist Action in Your Life
- We also have work to do in Canada: Resources for non-Black folks to support Black communities in Canada
This was one of my quarantine reads. It was eye-opening and disturbing to learn about tea's early dark history. For example: labourers could be bought and sold like slaves at the British tea plantations in India, Ceylon (Sri Lanka), and Africa.
To end this post on a lighter note: the teas that I finished in May!
Oldest tea: The Naked Leaf's Pineapple green tea (May 2018)
Newest tea: Laura Secord's Earl Grey black tea (May 2020)
