A friend of mine is doing a very special event that has gone world-wide and although it started as a “one-day” thing, it was so popular they are continuing it daily. It is Tea with Ahmie. See, Ahmie has cancer and we all know that really stinks – but it really stinks when you are a child and have your whole life ahead of you still. As a way of sending positive thoughts to Ahmie every day and showing her that people around the world care about her (and others fighting illness and disease), people have been posting photos of their tea, tea cups, tea pots and such on the Facebook event page each day.
My order from American Tea Room arrived yesterday and I have already tried out the three types of tea that were in my box – Martinique, Pink Christmas and a surprise large sample of Cape Town Chai (which I will reorder – how did they know I would like that one?). Normally I prefer the convenience of my tea in tea bags, but these teas definitely are worthy of getting out my tea ball!
This morning I am drinking the Pink Christmas – it is fruity, warm and needs no sugar (a big must for me!!) It is an organic blend of apples, orange peel, cinnamon, linden blossoms, cranberries, and pomegranate arils. So yes, it is caffeine free. My daughter’s favorite from this order is the Martinique which is also very fruity – quite peachy actually – and she prefers to drink it without sugar, too – huge win in my book!
So, next time you pour yourself a cup of tea, send off some positive thoughts for someone who may really need them!
