    All except the ginseng and green is from my gardens.

    One of my cold season mixes.
    Sounds completely and utterly fabulous!

    I can't wait to get to the point in my life where I can have a garden. Wonderful herbs and my own vegetables.

    There is definitely something extremely satisfactory in sipping on a cup of green tea with lemon while listening to Symphony Of Science's "We Are All Connected"... mmmm...

    I could definitely use a cup of tea right now... I wonder if I can get my hubby to make one for me and bring it with him upstairs?
    Mmmmm... tea.

    I wonder if it is very easy to grow tea. I would love to grow my own green tea and perhaps a white tea variety.

    Just saw your tea thread and thought I'd pop in and say cheers!

    Hmmm... I wonder too about growing my own tea. I've always been interested in that.



    I love it when people "pop in and say cheers"! Not enough traffic here.

    I think my new favorite tea would be green tea with just a hint of cranberry, yummy.

    I'm having a cold and odd day. A pissed off day in some ways, I did not get enough sleep last night.

    I'm looking to have a cup of Blessed Botanical's full moon winter chai.

    A blend of organic black tea, orange peel, roasted chickory, honeybush, cinnamon bark, lemon balm, cardamom pods, nettles, ground nutmeg, ginger root, juniper berries, and linden leaf.
    It's lovely.

    ETA: NA, I love that whole series. It's...magical's a funny word to use with science-related things, but it IS. It inspires me.
    The possibilities are endless.

    That tea sounds super yummy! I love chai teas, they always make me think of Christmas in the northern hemisphere... cold winters and harsh winds... and warm tea. It's so... cosy.

    I love it too. I usually use the word spiritual to describe it. I imagine it makes me feel sort of like how, I dunno... hymns would make a Christian feel.

    This doesn't taste quite like a traditional chai, but it's warm and it's spicy and rich. The aphrodisiac blend by the same company is also amazing. It's got a slight chocolatey kick to it. Hmmm. Do I want chai, or do I want the aphrodisiac stuff?

    A blend of all organic ingredients including damiana, cacao nibs, safflower threads, jasmine blossoms, marshmallow leaf, lavender, rose petals, oatstraw, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, passionflower, feverfew, hawthorne leaf & flower, and just a bit of maple sugar.

    I know exactly what you mean! You know what's funny? I'm not a Christian, but I still REALLY love old-school religious music. Like the old choral masses and stuff. Maybe it's because I've sung in so many choirs, but they make me really happy. And when I did Mozart's "Requiem" with my choir in Asheville...oh, man. That was a spiritual experience. Not in the sense that I saw the Christian God, but in the sense that I felt the universe at large was an amazing and magical thing, because that music was just SO beautiful.

    ...Does that make sense?
