Earth Day is tomorrow. And I searched far and wide (5 minutes up the road at Wegmans) for a tea that would fit the mold of this special day. I had so many to choose from, but I settled on Runa, which is a tea I hadn’t heard of until today. I am so happy I did. A cup of this made my day. It felt so good that I had two. Now I feel I can type a novel. But I’ll keep this blog to its standard amount of words.
First off, when I was canvasing the tea aisles for a package that would catch my eye, this one did it. I was looking for words and graphics that represent what this day is all about. It took me a few minutes, but the answer was in front of me the whole time. I saw a beautiful image of an orange. And I saw the term “clean energy’. And this led me to the Ginger Citrus Guayusa. This seemed just right.
This box is incredible. I’m mesmerized. I took photos all over the place. I have posted them for your viewing pleasure!
Now about the tea. It tastes good and it tastes easy. What I mean by that is it went down a lot smoother than many I’ve sipped over the years. It didn’t feel as rigid on my tongue or in my throat. When looking this fact up I read that there are no tannins in Guayusa. Now what is Guayusa? I hadn’t heard of it until today. In one of the aforementioned photos you can read a quick synopsis.
I wish I had heard about this sooner or I’d be drinking it immediately. Now it’s a part of my life. And I am grateful doing this blog has led me to this tea and to the Guayusa leaf.
I switched up the mugs today and went with an outdoorsy theme, with a charming Ocean City, MD image.
The natural caffeine and antioxidants have certainly brightened my day. And I am certain they would do the same for you. It’s so powerful that the usual taste of ginger is harder to detect than in other teas. But you know it’s there. And the orange peel is a perfect complement to this tea. As you can see the color really shines. And the bag looks spectacular.
I will be sampling more of their products for the duration.
Finally, in going through this website, the Earth Day theme is one that Runa represents the other 364 Days of the year. They’ve only been around since 2009 and are already accomplishing amazing things. This makes it that much more fulfilling that I discovered this great organization this week. I could read about them all day. And I will. It’s good to know I’m supporting something that leads to a big picture of helping and healing.
This is what life is all about. We’re all a good energy, a clean energy, we’re source energy.
Happy Earth Day.
