As the title might imply, I’m waiting. A lot of us are waiting. Depending on where you are in the country or in the world, you’re waiting for the weather to break. This might be an extended April Fools joke. No, I won’t go for that.
What isn’t a joke is the the Organic Cinnamon Cardamom from the new Teahouse Organic Collection from one of my favorites, Celestial Seasonings.
For more on their teas, you can purchase them online, or at a store near you, and finally my long storied love of their teas can be found here.
I’m grateful to a friend for sending me information and a visual on this tea, because who knows when I would have discovered it, or ever gotten around to it.
The answer is now.
My favorite teas are the ones that pack up so much that involve so little. All this tea contains is in the title, organic cinnamon and organic cardamom.
You know when you have a sense of how good a tea is going to be, before you even open it? That packaging evokes positive energy, spirit, and healing. Which is what is always needed, even if isn’t actually needed it.
Right now I can only speak for myself, but I can use all the spiritual healing I can get.
The sun is trying to show itself, it really is. I know we’re waiting. It changes so many things. The sun peaking its head here and there is such a tease. It’s a sign of hopefully good things to come, but I want more. I know many of us want more.
Looking at the teacup half full, grey skies make for the best pictures. So there’s that. I’m happy with how mine turned out.
My displays are celebrations of so many things good, including this tea. In case you didn’t notice, I love animals. In fact, I adore them. So both cups on display are ones I’ve used before, but I’m honoring how much I love my cat, and how much she’s been there for me for this ongoing love of tea (and my other blogs, which you can find here and here), and being there for me period.
She’s laying on my lap as I write this story out. That makes me feel so happy. This tea makes me so happy. The simple blend of cinnamon and cardamom makes both tastes distinct, noticeable, without having one trying to outdo the other. They work in perfect harmony and concert with one another to make for another perfect tea. I tend to say that a lot about teas, and I’ve elaborated on the elaboration in the past but it rings true, this tea is incredible, along the lines of so many teas I’ve had while doing this blog.
And there’s no right or wrong to that. I love this tea. I mean, I really love this tea. I love it so much. This celebration of all things good is that step into spring that’s always welcome. I was about to say needed, but ‘needed’ again sounds like something is lacking, and that’s not what I’m trying to say. It’s what’s welcomed and what embraced. I’m feeling the joy, the love, and energy emanating from this tea and the symbols I’ve placed side by side.
Yes I love dogs too. The cups and plates are gifts from friends, along with gifts to myself.
This tea is a gift from a friend, from the universe, and from myself. Which we all are worthy of as much as possible. In the grayest of times or even the happiest of times it’s always important to appreciate and open yourself up to everything around you.
I’ve been hesitant lately and have this ongoing match in my head about what’s right, what to welcome, and hopefully what fades away.
This tea and this experience was more about spiritual healing and accepting all that is sacred, and that is good in the universe. Because there’s so much more than I realize, and will never realize. But that’s ok. It’s not about getting there or some journey to destination scenario. It just is. I need to just be.
