Tea of the Day: Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf
Description:Orange Dulce flavored black tea is a luscious, rich brew teeming with notes of bergamot, orange, vanilla and jasmine blossoms. Made with Ceylon and China black teas, Orange Dulce brews up a fragrant and full bodied dark tea. Reminiscent of an aged Port, the flavor is sure to please.
Tea smells sweet and bright with a floral tone.
Liquor is an amber brown in the cup
The tea is fragrant and full flavored and relaxing even with the energetic aroma floating off of it. Adding sugar actually dampens the flavors a bit, making it more one tone
Today, a very sappy post. You have been warned.
My fiance had a fight and later a conversation, when we were calmer.
The fight had started because of something silly, as fights often do, but it covered something important to both of us.
The conversation later was a little rough and raw, and also important to have.
But I’m not writing today because of either of those things. The hard work of life isn’t often something people want to read about or even share. I only mentioned it because it gives context and greater meaning to what comes next.
I’m writing today because of what I came to realize: I am more important to him than he is to himself. If he is faced with a choice that would affect both of us, he will choose the one that is better for me, even at the expense of his own happiness.
This is the first time in a very long time that I’ve experienced this.
It’s overwhelming, flattering and a little scary.
It’s also motivating, in what might be an odd way…if I’m bad to myself, I’m also being bad to him.
His center has shifted, and so mine must too, which is a really awesome feeling.
