Tea of the Day: Chai Black Tea by Private Selection (Kroger)
Description: A blend of cloves, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg
Dry tea is very pungent, the spices getting into your nose as soon as you open the package
Liquor is a red-brown in the cup
Steeped tea smells just as pungent and it is quite flavorful. Do not attempt this tea if you don’t like spice! Adding sugar makes it a little smoother but seems to bring out the allspice and cinnamon. Definitely a warm-you-to-your-toes tea
Tea Rating: 4.5/5
Sometimes all you need for a good day is a small thing.
A meal gone well.
A glass (or two) of wine with a good friend.
Getting ahead of the game on something, whether it be taxes or homework.
Running with an idea for a meal or a desert, without second guessing yourself.
Pampering yourself by paying for a trim rather than doing it yourself (scalp massage, anyone?).
This list also happens to be a snapshot of my weekend, and though it’s just the beginning of the week and there is plenty of work to be done, I am operating around a core of internal quiet contentment.
Not too shabby for a Monday.
