Tea of the Day: RavenSong by Dryad Tea
Description: A delicious blend of spiced lemon and a touch of raspberry. This tea is the autumn call of the raven. Delightfully fruity and spicy all at ones, great with a dash of sweetener.
Dry tea smells rich and slightly spicy
Liquor is a cinnamony-brown color in the cup
Steeped tea is cinnamon in scent and flavor with an aftertaste of ginger and sweet berry. It’s not quite as complex as the description suggests, but does deepen in flavor as it cools. Adding sugar brings out the cinnamon flavor, which is not quite what I was hoping for.
Tea Rating: 4/5
Advice I’d give to my younger self:
Listen, your time and energy are too precious, and life is too damn short, to waste any of it on all the stressing you’re doing.
It’s like you think you have to make up for every angry thought or uncharitable action by letting people walk all over you and treat you badly like that’s what you deserve.
Obviously, this doesn’t mean be a dick. Be humble and kind and positive because that’s you but quit beating yourself up when you can’t. Even light bulbs burn out.
You’re giving yourself high blood pressure and nightmares and panic attacks over people who won’t be in your life in a few years.
And, it’s not your job to fix anyone. Be supportive, sure. But fix? No way
You’ve got bigger fish to fry.
