‘Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.’
—~Thich Nhat Hanh

If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it.
Magic becomes art when it has nothing to hide.
Gratitude is the open door to abundance.
I just received your wonderful teas and they are so, so good! I’m enjoying the mint lemongrass right now. I’m putting in a new order so I can try some of your other teas. Best wishes for a lovely and profitable new year.

Being in South Carolina was good and grounding. While I was there I brewed up some tea and had my family give it a try. My little cousin Donte, was initially pretty suspicious about my mint lemongrass tea. He had his soda waiting for him on the other side of the table and literally sniffed the tea out. But once he had a sip he was sold! Oh yea! I loved sharing my teas with the family~
I arrived in Beaufort, South Carolina on yesterday and it felt so great to return home. I immediately felt surges of creativity running through me as my aunt and sister met me at my bus stop and drove me home. We rode over about three bridges and I realized that I really miss seeing and being around water on a daily basis.
As soon as I got home I greeted my mom, put on some ginger tea and went back to my old room. My mother keeps it in immaculate condition and it’s always so nice to return home to. Sitting on my bed, was my very first entrepreneurial endeavor! My wedding bear!
At the age of nine my neighbor and I collaborated and created a crafts business. She made lacey wedding hats and I made wedding bears. We would hang out with our hot glue guns making our creations and strategizing on how and where to sell them! She sold her hats and I sold my bears to our neighbors and to our teachers in the teachers lounge of our elementary school.
I chuckled when I saw the bear as it reminded me of the fact that I’ve always had the spirit of wanting to work for myself. The thought also crossed my mind that the wedding bears, just like my tea are beautifully decorative yet comforting and who knows, maybe my bears provided some healing too! I also chuckled because my mom still has it around and it was neatly placed in a position to greet me as I entered my room.
The bear represents such a beautiful full circle moment just like home usually does for me! I am so excited about the week ahead in South Carolina and look forward to asking my family members about some of the leaves that my grandmother used to make teas. I’m always so inspired while home in SC, I definitely feel a new blend coming to me…
