Tea smells rich and slightly savory, with a strong overtone of spicy and citrus
Liquor is a cool olive green in the cup
Initially once steeped, the tea does not taste like something that should be drank, but should be eaten. Taking a sip also evokes flavors I would normally associate with food, but as I roll the tea around in my mouth i notice a pleasant fullness and a hint of sweetness
Adding a little sugar both plays up the savory and enhances the other flavors of the tea, the citrus and ginger-like bite blending very well
Tea Rating: 3.5/5
There are some people with a quality about them that you can’t define but that you’re drawn to, that we’re all drawn to, like plants are drawn to the sun
These people are going to be as varied as anyone, from all walks of life and backgrounds
This quality knows no race, or gender, or age
You probably already know what I mean, maybe have already pulled up a mental image of someone who is like that for you, and probably many other people you know
Whoever they are, however they might appear, they move through life with grace and aplomb, and are not boastful of what they have accomplished or who they know (or are). On the contrary, they are often genuinely impressed by the people around them and give compliments that are genuine and specific. What’s more is that they tend to support and encourage those around them to go for that hard thing, or to improve their situation or just generally be happier
I’ve had the pleasure in my lifetime of knowing several of these sunshine-on-a-cloudy day people, and each new one at a time where I myself had lost track of my inner spark, like the universe was saying: “carry on, you’ve got this”
Take a moment today to thank those sparks in your life, even if they don’t understand.
Your appreciation might be that thing that keeps that person glowing bright
