Tea of the Day: Holiday Chai by Stash Tea
Description: For our holiday interpretation of the classic Indian tea, we blended premium black teas with an exotic melange of spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, clove and cardamon along with flavors of gingerbread and rum to give this Chai a unique twist
Smells like eggnog without the heavy cream scent
Light organgey brown in the cup
Tastes like eggnog as well, pleasantly spicy and mouth tingly.
Tea Rating: 4/5
Last night, while watching a playlist of TED talks, I came across one that really struck a chord with me.
In particular, the speaker said this (probably not exactly word for word): “the only thing that separates people who feel love and belonging and those that feel they are never enough is the belief that they are worthy of love and belonging”
This just blew me away.
It also made me feel a moment of “duuuuh” because really, I knew that. I know how powerful the mind and belief can be
But I still feel that this is significant. If you believe you are worthy of it, you feel love and belonging.
It’s that simple.
Or it could be, but we get in our own way
Link to the video that sparked this:
“Nowhere is the English genius of domesticity more notably evident than in the festival of afternoon tea. The […] chink of cups and the saucers tunes the mind to happy repose.”
