Wild Rose Red Currant

Standard

Tea of The Day:  Wild Rose Red Currant by the Alaska Herb Tea Company

Description: Wild Rose is a delicate herb tea; a harmonious blend with fragrant rose leaves and rose petals gathered in midsummer from thickets along Alaskan river banks.

Dry tea smells bright and tart

Liquor is a chestnut brown in the cup

Steeped tea smells like the dry, just a bit more tart than before.

Tea has a stronger smell than flavor, but is still a pleasant cup.

Tea Rating: 2.5/5


 

An interesting article from this weekend: http://time.com/4124288/thanksgiving-day-2015-thankful-gratitude/?xid=newsletter-brief

Essentially, it says something that we all know instinctively, that gratitude makes us healthier

Last month, and last week in particular, people seem to really focus on counting their blessings, and talking about what they are grateful for.

This tends to be a pretty positive thing, and is certainly nice to see, but I think it’s missing the point.

One week or even one month of consciously focusing on the good things in your life is a start, but we really should be doing so all year around

Every day, there is something in our lives that we can appreciate

Even if it’s just “I’m glad I have a job.” or “I am glad I can pay rent and buy food” or “I’m happy to see my dog when I come home every day”

If it’s the same thing most days, that’s fine, because it doesn’t stop being a good thing

Maybe if we all find something to be grateful for every day, we’ll stop feeling like we don’t have enough and stop competing with everyone else.

Maybe not, but a girl can dream, right?


Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
― Epicurus
