Now that we have set our clocks back and our nights are longer it is the perfect time to do all things cozy! A person who knows just what to do for cozy season is Terrell Davis, the self proclaimed ‘good times dispenser’. Thanks to his viral videos on Tik Tok, Terrell has become popular for sharing his delicious homemade tea recipes that will warm any cold soul right up and his love for plants which were ingrained in him by his grandmother. Not only is Terrell blessing us with these quick step by step videos of his tea time he is advocating self care while doing so. We love to see it and cannot wait to try one of this teas on a brisk fall night.
