Oh man. So yeah, Paromi Tea was a late Christmas gift from some dear friends I hadn’t seen in some time. It’s one of the more unique tea packages you’ll find. And if you like what you see on the outside, just wait…
I love Sachet’s, I love all kinds of way that tea is presented. But Sachets are something else. The pyramid or triangle shape gives a glimpse of all the amazing herbs, spices, fruits, and other amazing entities from this planet, and it’s all there for you to see, in all its glory. It’s much different than you standard steeping tea bag. This is an event. And the way the bag opens up while it steeps is all part of this fantastic journey.
What else is does is you get a lot of beautiful colors rather quickly. And the Chamomile Lavender Rooibos brings all the amazing things I just wrote about, and so much more. Oh there’s more.
I’ve come across lavender a lot lately. There’s so many things lavender, from scented trash bags (yes that’s correct), air fresheners, incense, oils, soaps, lotions and all that good stuff that keeps popping up into my life. So it makes sense that I’m gifted this amazing tea, as my mind is drawn to and focused on lavender. The universe works just like that. Ask and you will receive. Some things may take longer than others. And yet not everything needs or has to be rushed.
And after writing about one beautiful lavender flavored tea two weeks ago (which was no accident by the way, either), we come to this one. So no more build up, but as I’ve said Paromi is doing something tremendous.
The ingredients, which are Fair Trade, organic, and from something much bigger than all of us, is just tremendous. It’s a stellar blend of the aforementioned ingredient and a little vanilla flavor which is just understated enough to make this a meteoric and world class tea.
And when the description says no more than five minutes of steeping, they’re not kidding. This has some power to it.
I might be caught up in the fact that this was a gift. But yes, I will get caught up in the fact that this was a gift. I’m grateful. I would love this tea if I discovered it on my own, but I wasn’t supposed to. I hadn’t heard of this until it was presented to me, in present form. And that’s living in the present folks. Yes, that was intentional.
The days are getting longer. Spring is rapidly approaching. I’m contradicting what I just said about being in the moment, and present. Yet, I do have a few Spring like pieces in these displays, just to get the happiness going. We should always be happy, but sometimes the winter and the short days, will do something to people.
For me, it’s been strange. I could go back and look at all my previous stories, and likely find positives in all of them. Maybe so much. Lately, it’s easy to find all the positives but with a more realistic tone. Life has been funny for me. It’s been funny for a many of my peers, our peers, and people we’ve yet to meet. It can be chaotic, stressful, and sometimes overwhelming. One day it’s great, the next day it’s an experience. And we go to bed with those feelings and wake up hoping each day is better, is great, and is going to transform into something good.
But to ease the stress, a little help might be needed. This tea did something to me today. Lavender has its calming tendencies. And that easily could be it. Yet I had some moments standing outside, where the synopsis even says, a lot of things just faded and melted away.
This feeling, among other things, inspired the title for this post.
I stood outside, took my photos, but then I just kept standing there. There was still lots of daylight, maybe no sunlight, but lots of time to still appreciate what I’m looking at, and feeling. I saw beautiful animal friends, grass, I saw trees, nature, thing maybe not so natural, but everything felt fine.
Something hit me. It may fleeting, because feelings tend to do that, if you let them. Feelings can be fickle. But, for a few minutes I felt comfortable with me, in my own skin, and the universe. It felt good. I want that feeling all the time. I have this tea to thank, my friends to thank, and I always owe it something much bigger than us. I’m going to say that a lot. It just comes to me, naturally….
At $10 a bottle, that may seen steep (ha) to some. But trust me, it’s well worth the investment.
And I know I’ll be making another investment soon.
Peace Be With You.
