As promised (in a different universe, or the same one depending on how you look at it), I wanted to dedicate my last of the two posts to Syriana Cafe & Gallery, to not just a off-the-charts tea, but also a wonderful experience that only gets better with time.
Since this writing, their official grand opening has taken place. I wish I was able to attend, but the timing of things and life prevented me from doing so. But I’m grateful to have made the serendipitous visit last Thursday. And it’s truly an honor to come up with two stories based on what is hopefully he the first of many stops to this majestic place.
I’ll admit I’ve fallen into patterns like so many of us do. I find myself in routines, going to the same places, ordering the same things, and wondering what’s wrong with me. Literally I go through this mantra in my head from time-to-time. And there’s nothing wrong with me, or you, or anyone. We like what we like. But I don’t like a lot of routine.
Even if it’s the same cup of coffee, I rather get it from a different place, just to keep a level of sanity. But you know what the say about insanity. Well somebody somewhere said something.
A place like Syriana Cafe is the complete opposite of the norm. It’s a an art gallery, cafe, and a place of rest. It’s so much more on top of all that. It’s the type of experience that I’d want to be a part of on a regular basis, that would never be the same and never get old.
That comes from the breakfast pizza I ordered, along with this stellar Hibiscus, Citrus, and Mint tea from Hooyo’s Tea, based out of Baltimore, MD.
For more on Hooyo’s Tea, here is their story, teas available for purchase online, where you can find their teas, and contact information.
I was informed that Syriana Cafe has an agreement with the tea company, which is a win win for everyone. Local supporting local is what life is all about. And I’m all about it…
But this tea is the perfect preview of sunnier and happier days ahead. And I know they’re coming. In my heart and mind they’re here and they’ve always been here. A tea with this soul, this spirit, and not to mention the color, flavor, and aftertaste brings all the feelings and emotions of all that is good in the universe.
The synopsis is here so I don’t need to go into that detail. I can only envision how great this would be iced. Yum.
When enjoyed in a setting such as this, with so many beautiful visual cues, a powerful and vibrational energy, and a picturesque town such as Ellicott City, it’s the stuff you read or see about, but also know it exists.
I want to thank the owner, Majd, for chatting with me for a few minutes, and giving me a bit of history in how this cafe came to be.
By looks of the grand opening, there’s nothing but a warm embrace and support from not only the neighborhood, but the town, and Howard County. As I said in the title, there’s room for everybody. One successful local business can only benefit the other ones surrounding it. I know success, prosperity, and all around great things are to come for this place.
From one event such as the grand opening leads into another….
SpringFest 2018 is this Saturday, which is in conjunction with Earth Day, is a celebration of the town, celebration of Spring, and a celebration of all that is good. Admission is free, and it’s one where I hopefully will be able to attend. All the information you need can be found here.
This was tremendous. I don’t know where to go from here. Actually yes I do. If time is allowed, I may do another post this week (and when I post outside of Tea Tuesday, you know it means something) on this beautiful town and in celebration of the upcoming festival.
Have a blessed one.
