    Twin Flame CBD Tea with Amada Sizemor‪e‬

    Amanda Sizemore is the owner at Twin Flame Tea. She founded the company almost two years ago. The idea came to her one afternoon walking through a farmer’s market with her significant other. She was craving an organic iced tea with real herbs. A tea with beautiful hand blended leaves, not the fanning’s you usually find at the grocery store. This craving led to her curiosity of starting what she didn’t know would become an amazing adventure.

Stumbled upon this!

A colleague of mine recommended I give this podcast a try. I picked a random episode and enjoyed it thoroughly. I learned alot and at points where the guest started to ramble Thom got things back on track with his humor. I will definitely check out more of the episodes and add this to my podcast rotation.
