I love Pomegranate and in part because my culture has always embraced this amazing fruit. I was born in the states and my family is from Iran. So there’s that connotation. It’s sentimental, it’s family, and it’s love. I always equivocate it to a holiday, the upcoming Spring season, or in our case, Persian New Year. Specialty teas for our celebration will be elaborated upon next month.
This wasn’t a life changing cup but this was another strong tea. I need to remind myself not to have such high expectations unless it’s really called for. I liked it but I think I wanted some more pomegranate flavor. But what this might mean is this is a lot more natural than other ‘natural’ teas claim to be. This is the genuine tea that we stumble upon from time-to-time when you’re not looking. And seeing is believing or something.
Luckily I was visiting somewhere that had some remarkable Twinings teas.
Happy and healthy was the order of the day. I paired my cup with some steel cut oat meal with raisins. I think I just wanted an excuse to write steel cut oat meal in a blog one time. I don’t know why but that term seems funny to me.
My stomach was settled and I felt good the rest of the day. It was a welcome alternative to the not-so-healthy meals I’ve had in the mornings. It’s just a matter of getting used to and being good to my stomach. Our bodies deserve the best treatment. I believe that’s one of the biggest reasons tea was created. It’s good to be good to ourselves.
As I expound on this, I think I like this tea more than I realized. It’s endeared itself to me.
It feels great. It feels real. I feel rejuvenated.
Spring is coming! Yes!
All The Best,
