It will take me some time but eventually we will have information about each one of the 200 teas presently in the shop, including the new ones that I keep finding, ( I have never met a tea that I didn’t like, although there are some I like better than others). Each tea has its own Magic, its own appointed task to accomplish, very much like herbs, spices and incense. Some are relaxing, some healing, soothing nerves or upset stomaches, and some are energizing like the one we are featuring today.
Are you looking for a quick pick-me-up in the morning? Or feeling like you need a mid-afternoon boost for those long days at the office? EnergyTea to the rescue!
This delicious, sweet with a spicy-minty bite, tea rolls over the palate like a tidal wave, filling the mouth with a pleasant herbal astringent. Wow wake up!Gynostemma lends the sweet profile: a leafy plant known by herbalists as a miracle grass, herb of immortality and the fairy herb. Ginger is known to speed blood circulation and stimulate the body. Peppermint has the ability to perk up even the sleepiest of us while delivering high levels of vitamin A and C. Peppermint’s elevated levels of menthol are responsable for its sweet/hot flavor that can heat up and cool the mouth at the same time. The addition of natural Lemon, Lemon Grass and Green Mate complete this rousing tea, an herbal blend that really creates a cup of vim and vigor and puts a gleam in the eye and a bounce in the step.
Visit the Funky Karma Incense & Tea Shop and try a cup of this invigorating tea: take home an ounce or two for those times you are tired but need to keep on ticking – it’s equally as effective hot or iced.
She’s been working today, in between customers and visits from friends, the Lavender & Lilac Bath Salts, were ready to be packaged in cone bags with handcrafted labels tied on with purple ribbon. They sure are pretty! Most people buy one for themselves and one to give away. I grabbed one ribbon when she was otherwise occupied, ran with it into a quiet corner and had a good playtime shredding that ribbon. I like the silky ribbon strands and the rustle of the bags but don’t understand all the fuss people make over bath products like that, saying ‘it relaxes them’. I just use my tongue, clean my white fur & straighten my whiskers then fall right to sleep. That’s one of the differences between humans and Cats. We live a simpler life; as long as we have food, toys, petting and a good bed we are happy. So I checked out the new bath salts, and approved them and directed her to place the basket of new stuff on the front counter.
Now I see she is getting out the pink ribbon…what is she making now? Hey! Maybe I can grab a pink ribbon to go with my purple one.
