This body of work evolved from tea sessions held at an exhibition hosted by the first gender neutral fashion store in London, Verv Lab in March 2020.  I have used spearmint and pine pollen as reference – both botanicals responsible for balancing out male and female hormones within the body.  During the exhibition I also offered the audience to taste the teas made with these herbs.  Only one weekend of tea sessions took place there before covid-19 induced isolation began.
