- I ran around the woods yesterday with my dear friend Jono, 📷 @le_yone and his dog Lenny. We went to Art School together in NY and both escaped Brooklyn for the Pacific Northwest in our mid-late 20’s. We agree we should have ran to the west long before, but here we are- still with our cameras and never quiet creative brains pursuing and encouraging each other with all of our crazy dreams . . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #oregonexploresd #mountaingirls #wildernessculture #exploregon #exploremore #portland #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificnorthwest #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #kinthelabel #dannerboots #mthood #organic #outside_project @mthoodterritory @dannerboots @kin_thelabel

- Photo | Native drawings on a boulder in the Umpqua Forest . . Let those who celebrate Thanksgiving be thankful for family & friends. For the knowledge we have been taught and that we are yet to learn. But most of all, let all of us be respectful on National Mourning Day, forever grateful and show true humility to our Native brothers and sisters we are forever indebted to. ‘Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children.’ - Sitting Bull . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #thanksgiving #nationalmourningday #thankfulness #nativedrawings #umpquanationalforest #oregonexplored #mountaingirls #exploregon #pacificnorthwest

- Chai- About us: the Aesthete Tea logo was created by one of my best friends @melchernock who founded and owns @look___cook . August of 2009 I moved to Manhattan, NY. I walked into my dorm room of art school (SVA) - this girl gave me a hug and I knew we would be best friends. We spent the rest of our time at University seemingly inseparable. She is an amazing artist and a better friend. When I asked her to create a logo for my brand she came up with multiple options. This one was inspired by the idea to let the tea ‘breathe’ with the white spaces around either side. (If you haven’t read White by Kenya Hara- go buy it) I am forever grateful to Mel for creating such a beautiful logo with a payment of Oregon Wine and tea 🖤🌲 . . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #lakeoswego #portland #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #autumn #fall #sva #schoolofvisualarts @svanyc

- A few days ago I stopped into one of my literal favorite places @goldenhourpdx for an acupuncture treatment. Janet, who owns Golden Hour and @pearlplusluxurysoap was there and we had a wonderful conversation about owning your own brand. We discussed the necessity to learn how to ‘let things go’ when you own a business and understand that the vision of your brand will look and mean something different to every person and this is what is so beautiful and allows it to “gain multiple dimensions overtime”, Janet said. I always appreciate when I can catch Janet and have these brief but insightful conversations with someone as successful and driven as her. If you haven’t been to Golden Hour- GO. They now take walk-ins on Saturdays and have Holiday Gift Cards . . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #lakeoswego #portland #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #autumn #fall #acupuncture #goldenhourpdx#pearlsoap

- I’m a true believer in the universe sending you messages and giving you the things you need when you ask with humility and gratefulness. Many of you have asked for a pu erh tea. I have been searching for a direct family farm that I can source from. My search was leading to mass tea plantations and companies I did not feel held the values I would have liked them to. Last week I had lunch with my dear friend Chelsea- where I ordered a pu erh tea. I mentioned this struggle I was having of finding a direct farm - we briefly talked on the subject and then moved our conversation elsewhere. Yesterday, a man from Holland emailed me after finding my Instagram and website, explaining that he works to connect small tea companies that hold positive values to small, sustainable family farms. After speaking to him - he allowed me to be a part of his program & welcomed me into his community, giving me direct contacts to families that grow pu erh and other beautiful teas. At this lunch, my friend Chelsea showed up with fresh lemon balm she hand picked from a small patch in the forest. I explained to her that lemon balm has been a reoccurring herb in my life- popping up everywhere and we both agreed it could not have been a coincidence. I photographed her gift with a small piece of selenite, which is another natural element that keeps appearing in the most random places of my life. So, I will have my pu erh soon for all of you, fresh and full of the beautiful energy from generations of sustainable tea farmers and I will continue to believe that everything I need will come to me exactly when the time is right and that those elements that keep appearing are perhaps my good luck charms . . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #lakeoswego #portland #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #autumn #fall

- Thankfulness and giving are the mantras of the month. Through my brand I have been able to understand myself more. That the girl who appears to be gracefully walking through the woods in a picture is really falling the next second. (If you watch my stories you’ll see the many tumbles I take on our adventures that Lisa is able to capture). I am not gracefully walking through the woods like a fairy. I am a goon: I am the most clumsy person I know. I stand a whopping 5’1” and have the physique of a 12 year old boy. I wear too large of hats because I love hats, but also under the hat is an untamed, multi-racial collection of crazy curls that I am too lazy to ‘do’ each morning. I wear baggy vintage Levis, Loggers boots or clogs that nurses prefer for ‘comfort’. My style is closely related to that of a 80 year old man who lives in New Hampshire. I don’t drink alcohol because I cannot physically or mentally handle it. And if you knew me in college, when I did drink, you are reading that line and saying ‘yeah, that’s probably for the best’. In high school, although seemingly popular I was always a little off. I remember distinctly a friend at a party looking at me, a bit tipsy and without much of a filter saying- “Bri, you’re just so...artsy.” In a way that wasn’t necessarily a compliment. Instagram is an amazing tool to find people and brands that hold values you try to emulate in your own daily life. Though, I also sometimes find myself looking at these seemingly perfect families, fantasizing a Wes Anderson film around their existence. It’s important to remember that after that picture was taken, they turned around and spoke to their cat as though it were a human too. Give what you can, be yourself and be thankful for that. Just remember that we are all ridiculous and stumbling through life, you just have to read the comments below the pictures for grammatical errors to remember . Shout out to @camila_elise BFF and Mother of me and Lisa’s God Son (Waylon ‘Danger’ Palmer) for editing all of my important business docs 😂 . . . . #tea #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #autumn #fall #thankful #thanksgiving

- Woodland. A blend of green and white tea. Available at our online store A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Katie @ponderosa_and_thyme at a @yworkshops_ event.. When I first started packaging this tea I immediately contacted her asking to send her some. The beautiful colors and textures of this tea reminded me of her stunning floral arrangements. I named the tea ‘woodland’ not just for its earthy, woodsy flavors but also because it looks like it had been collected from a forest floor after the first weeks of autumn . . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #lakeoswego #portland #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #autumn #fall

I named the tea ‘woodland’ not just for its earthy, woodsy flavors but also because it looks like it had been collected from a forest floor after the first weeks of autumn . . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #lakeoswego #portland #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #autumn #fall

- [...continued] Lisa grew up in this forest and as we got back in the car and drove through the remainder of it to get to our next destination, we sat in silence as we entered the burnt patch of trees. We saw what our fire and carelessness can cause. And for a stretch of only a few miles that seemed like forever we cried for the forest and it’s creatures that call it home. Though, I do believe everyone should experience and see all aspects of the world - I thanked those who kept secret the locations of the places that are too sacred for some to properly appreciate. I am so grateful for the things I have seen and experienced and so unbelievably lucky to have a partner who explores and shares this knowledge and moments with me. Sometimes we forget to appreciate all of the things we have been given, and all it takes to remember is sitting in a forest looking at a tree that you can’t even identify but wholeheartedly accept it is so much wiser than you will ever be . . . . . #tea #looseleaftea #oregon #lakeoswego #portland #yoga #yogi #chai #ilovetea #teatime #teahouse #minimalism #minimalist #pnw #pacificwonderland #meditate #oolongtea #earlgrey #greentea #organic #autumn #fall #umpqua

- There is this inherent feeling in humans- a desire to find ‘home’. Some people search to fill this desire with material things, others with a religion or an understanding of a life existing after our human form, and those with actual personal land or property to call home. For me the concept was always much more abstract. That inherent human longing for the unknown was never easily solved for me by religion, concepts of a nirvana, or a physical space or thing. Perhaps naive - but I always felt it was much simple. It was never going to be a person, a place or a thing - it would be a combination of them all. All of the elements, the vibrations, experiences, understandings and lessons that would at an exact (seemingly random) moment, come together and allow our unconscious to see and feel something surreal. This would send an emotion to our conscious brain, to feel this inherent human desire fulfilled. It is a powerful, fleeting emotion that is difficult to describe in words but feels so familiar that it is undeniably real for you. There have been times where I have traveled to a place, a forest, a historically charged site - expecting to feel so much and have walked away from it, feeling as though I had missed something. But- there are places and moments that I have no prior knowledge or anticipation of that I enter and walk away feeling as though I have (in my waking life) experienced something I could only dream of fully understanding. A feeling of peace in its purist form, of true Samadi ... the feeling of ‘home’. I found this for just a moment in the Umpqua Forest as we hiked through to find old rocks with Native drawings and searched for ancient native caves that’s locations are kept secret by the locals in order to protect them from our human faults and destructive nature.
