I have written many Days on creating an adventure and trying new things. And I have mentioned that the grocery store is one of the best places around to have an adventure. You simply never know what you are going to find.
My new favorite Tea is Celestial Seasonings Tea House Chai Honey Vanilla White Tea. It is just a great full flavor. According to the box,
“If traditional chai, black teas combined with exotic East Indian spices, has piqued your interest, this imaginative take on perfection may further expand your horizons. Honey Vanilla White TeaHouse Chai balances the delicacy of white tea with full-bodied black tea, then sweetens the elixir with natural honey and a hint of vanilla. Imbued with antioxidants from both white and black teas, a steaming cup or a tall, icy glass may be your ticket to momentary enlightenment.”
And you thought it was just a tea.
I do have to say that this tea does goes wonderfully with my morning meditations. Every morning I take about 15 minutes to just sit by my big front window and watch the birds and just be. The steaming cup of tea just helps me to get in that quiet place. Love it.
I also just adore the box that the tea comes in. Celestial Seasonings does a wonderful job of creating a beautiful and inspiring package. I also loved that the box of tea I have has a saying from Ralph Waldo Emerson entitled “Each Day.” I thought that was appropriate.
“Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in – forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it well and serenely, and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old mistakes and nonsense.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Great advice I believe.
The other new discovery I made this week at the grocery store were the Honeycrisp apples, my new fave. They are sweet as one might assume from the name and also crisp, also one might assume so from the name. They also have a great texture. I used them to make my famous (just with me) baked apples. Instead of using honey or sugar I use Madhava Agave Nectar to sweeten the apples and stuff them with walnuts and raisins. According to the Honeycrisp site (which is where I got that great picture),
“Honeycrisp Apples were developed at the University of Minnesota. Honeycrisp apple is a cross between Macoun apple and Honey Gold apples and is extraordinarily crisp and juicy with a wonderful aroma and flavor.”
Life is full of amazing things if only you are willing to seek them out. I find a world of adventure in the grocery store where others might only find food. If you keep an open mind you can have an adventure anywhere.
Live the Day
