Ladies… It’s time

September 28, 2016

Taking care of yourself begins with acknowledging that you deserve to be taken care of. By you. For you. I’m extremely guilty of running, moving, doing… Sometimes I’m really good. Gym. Yoga. Fruits and Veggies. Quiet Mornings. But when I’m not on, I’m WAY off. It’s not until I don’t feel well, life kicks me, or see self care on social media; a light bulb goes off and I remember ME. 

I remember that I HAVE to put myself first. I have to be good to me before I can truly be good to others. 

So, I invite you, tea lover, to be good to yourself. 

Join me at the Women of Color Healing Retreat in Costa Rica in November.  

I am happy to announce that I will be the Spiritual Retreat Team Guide at the November Women of Color Healing Retreat. Each day, I will be assisting other women in connecting with both their physical and spiritual selves in learning about the chakras and elements. Some of the healing services that I will provide at the retreat include reiki, tarot reading etc. I would love to invite you to our next retreat from November 7th-November 14th in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica!

The passion that I bring to my work at Women of Color Healing Retreats is dedicated to assisting black women in emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. The retreat located outside of the United States so that black women can connect with nature, as nature is our original home. WCHR has created a space to get back to her. WCHR is also a space to unwind and disconnect from the psychological trauma of systemic racism. In a world that teaches us not to take care of ourselves, it is revolutionary and healing when we do. 

From daily de-colonized yoga and meditation classes, surf or swim lessons, zip lining across the majestic jungle, to beautiful group days on the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica. WCHR also engages our guests in the adventure side of life. We provide the opportunity to go hiking and exploring throughout Puerto Viejo. Our ultimate goal is to open the mind and heart, so WCHR provides workshops on colorism, self-love/self-care, healing circles and much more.

Each day of the retreat will also center on navigating through the 7 chakras and the 5 elements. Our teachings will move you from the root to the crown by focusing on food, yoga, meditation, to open and nourish each of the body’s sacred centers. If you are not familiar with the importance of the chakras and elements, then this is the perfect opportunity for you to learn. The retreat will be led by a guide and a healer who will be there to hold conversations and space for the group to learn and grow together.

The next Women of Color Healing Retreat will be November 7th-November 14th in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Be sure to place down your deposit of $423.95 to reserve your spot, once you have placed your deposit. We provide the option of a payment plan, so spaces do fill up fast. I really hope you can make it!

meet matcha

April 21, 2015

matcha

It’s green. It’s hot. It’s fresh. It’s new {but not really}. It’s MATCHA!

It’s the new “IT DRINK”.

Made from finely milled green tea, it’s perfect as a morning healthy kick in the pants or afternoon pick me up. Lovely as a tea latte or a different twist in your smoothie, matcha has so many ways that it can be enjoyed. Because it is in powder form, it is easily added to ice cream to yogurt; popsicles to desserts.

At Two Red Bowls, they offer a recipe for Matcha Shortbread Cookies. We think it’s perfect with a cup of tea.

Tell us how you enjoy your matcha or stop in our shop and let us whip you up a cup!

Cheers!

steaming teapot

We’ve been MIA and we apologize. We run here. We work there. We brew. We blend. We deliver. We open. We close. We have been moving at the speed of light!

So… this morning. We have slowed down just a bit. Turned on the tea kettle, prepared a cup of tea (we’re actually on cup three), and enjoyed the moment. There are no cell phones around. No iPads or computers (I promise to shut down after this post!). No agenda.

Everyone in the office is on required quiet time break. It’s nice. I can hear the bird outside of the window. I can hear a lawnmower in the distance. I can the faint noise of the flute in the jazz song playing on the radio. I can smell the lemon verbena growing in the office. My senses are alive. My heart is calm. And this cup of tea feels good in my hands.

Try it. Take a moment for yourself. Unplug. Breathe. And sip…

Here in the South, we know Spring has arrived by our noses. The equation goes…
beautiful blooms = sneezing + scratchy throats
It’s ok! Local honey helps relive the woes of the season. And just add honey tea company wouldn’t be a tea company if we didn’t have a little of Spring’s ‘liquid gold’ to help you through the season. So while brewing your cup of tea, stir in a spoonful of honey.
Cheers!

smooth’tea’

March 11, 2014

You’ve pulled out your blender to make a smoothie. Now what?
ADD TEA TO IT!!!
With the warmer temperatures here to stay (we hope), there should always be iced tea on hand. So, no matter your favorite flavor, there’s a smooth’tea’ you can enjoy.
We started with our sweet tart iced tea
Added frozen strawberries, blueberries, and peaches. Threw in a few chia seeds, and you’re looking at refreshing!

Saturday Cruisin’

March 1, 2014

Saturdays are easy {kinda like Sunday morning}. You wake up late, decide how you’re going to spend the day, and head out. You may meet friends for brunch or head to the market for tonight’s dinner.

You may even be this stylish pair and cruise downtown on your bike. Meet Ese and Jack.

20140301-142949.jpg
We met them at Piedmont Park’s Green Market this Saturday and the two immediately caught our attention. Well dressed pair, vintage yet modern bikes, and their love for tea! They purchased our georgia peaches and black coconut tea and rode off into the park. What a perfect way to spend a Saturday! Carefree and cruising on bikes while enjoying the city.
So… Next Saturday, when you roll out of bed, put a little dapper in your wardrobe. Have an agenda but none at all. Get a little bit of effortless exercise. And enjoy the day {oh and a cup of tea, of course}!
Cheers!!!

delicate and perfect

Today we are selling and sampling our teas at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It is the beginning of the Orchid Market and will be a busy day. Patrons from all around come to see the orchid collection.
I love the way an orchid looks. So delicate yet so sturdy. It doesn’t require much attention as long as it’s planted correctly and kept in good settings.
I guess, in a way, our lives are like an orchid. Proper foundation and ideal settings, we’ll thrive. Even though we are delicate, each one of us are beautiful flowers, waiting to bloom.
Cheers tea lovers!
