Tea of the Day: Chamomile Herbal Tea by Stash Tea
Description: Chamomile brews a beautiful golden cup with a delicate, classic apple-like flavor and fragrance. It is a soothing drink that is good any time of the day, but especially relaxing in the evening. Stash sources its chamomile from Egypt, where the climate and centuries of expertise in cultivation makes Egyptian chamomile the very best. Egyptian chamomile has the largest, brightest flowers with the most fragrance and flavor.
Dry tea has that sweet, herby smell that is very distinctive to chamomile blends.
Steeped tea still smells sweet, but the herby scent is stronger
Liquor is a light golden color in the cup.
Tastes very similar to the way it smells, at first herby with a little bit of a bite, then leaving behind a light, sweet aftertaste.
Adding sugar emphasises the natural sweetness of the tea without overpowering the herbal flavor.
Tea Rating: 3/5
Yes, it’s snowing again. Yes, it’s not even October yet. No, I’m not even a little upset about this.
In the most nerdy way possible, I love precipitation.
I love the rain, the way it washes away dust and grime and anxious thoughts alike. I love the sound of rain on the roof of your house or your car, white noise creating a quiet space in your head. I love the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning when you’re safe and sound with a cup of something warm.
I love snow, probably even more than rain. I love the soft whisper it makes as it falls, the feather brushes on your face. Snow has a way of cleansing but more peacefully, transforming the landscape with layers of clean white. Colors pop more in the snow and clear skies after a dump of snow reveal a sky so blue it’s like living in a painting.
Even when I have to drive slow because of the snow on the roads, and there’s power outages caused by heavy snow breaking trees and power lines, I still consider myself lucky to live in a place where snow is a regular thing.
” Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather“- John Ruskin
