If you answered mostly A, you’re the… Homebody Hibernator
Winter is not your jam. Constantly cold (and, let’s be honest, a little bit grumpy) in winter, you’re happiest when you can curl up with a classic movie and sip a hot toddy under as many blankets as possible. You’re happy to forego a little socializing if it means you can stay warm at home. Sure, you’ll miss your friends, but at least there’s no risk of frost bite! They can always brave the cold to come visit you.
HOMEBODY HIBERNATOR TEAS: Caffeine is key (takes the edge off of grumpy), comfort is a must. Your staple is a classic Aged Earl Grey and the occasional London Fog Latte when you’re feeling ambitious. Before bed, Chamomile Lemon have the perfect flavor profile for those hot toddies.
If you answered mostly B’s, you’re the… Creative Writer
Nothing fuels your creative juices like a dark, drizzly day. You’re inspired by the quietness of winter, and spend much of your time thinking, people watching, and writing. You dream of moving to a bustling, northern city where you can feel the energy of the crowds around you without standing out yourself. One of these days, you’ll finish your novel.
CREATIVE WRITER TEAS: Your creative sessions are fueled by Numi’s Mate Lemon blend for increased mental energy and focus. To wind down and refresh, nothing beats a cup of Moroccan Mint with a square of dark chocolate.
If you answered mostly C’s, you’re the… Snowday Hero
You live for the thrill of outdoor adventures, especially during the magic of wintertime. You don’t mind that sweaty-cold feeling you get from running in sub-zero temperatures; in fact, it exhilarates you! Your idea of heaven is a sporting goods store, but when you do head inside after a long day, you enjoy the glow of the fireplace and a hearty meal. The best sleep comes after an active day.
SNOWDAY HERO TEAS: A thermos of Numi Organic Green Tea sustains your active energy during the day. At night, a Turmeric Golden Latte soothes away the soreness and sets you up for the next day’s adventure.
If you answered mostly D’s, you’re the… Eternal Pragmatist
Winter. It’s just a thing that happens. For you, winter is just another season. You enjoy yourself, sure, but you don’t get too excited. Best to stay level-headed, take care of yourself, and make reasonable choices. You don’t need too much to feel satisfied: a strong cup of coffee or tea, a good pair of boots, and the company of family and friends. For you, preparation is key, wintertime or not.
