I have a friend who writes, mothers, and makes amazing teas. Her name is Lucy. She once wrote lovely guest post for this blog on how she balances motherhood with her creative pursuits in life. She also authors two blogs, Lucille in the Sky and Lucy Miller Robinson.
You may know something about her tea company, Herbal Philosophy Teas, but you may not know more than that it exists and that she runs it along with writing novels and chasing babies.
I like Lucy and her inspirational writings on health, well-being, motherhood, and creativity, and that’s why I decided to buy her teas months ago.
Each tea helps with a particular set of physical or mental ailments, such as morning sickness, hangovers, skin conditions, sleeplessness, etc. I bought, tried, and have fallen in love with the Feel Lite, Finding Serenity, and Feel the Love teas. They are each very unique and, perhaps, most importantly, delicious.
I liked her teas so much that I emailed her to say that they made me happy.”Your teas make me happy” is what I wrote.
Since then, I’ve been talking a lot about her teas because I have this feeling that they came at a point when I needed them most in my life.
Her teas make me happy.
I am writing this because I have a feeling that if we become a society who does things like drink wonderful teas, we can all feel a bit happier, too.
The Herbal Philosophy Teas are loose leaf teas. You place them in a reusable tea bag first, then place that tea bag in hot water. Sometimes when I’m in the midst of making or drinking the teas, I wonder if maybe, maybe if we will all do things like this, things that require us to slow down for one part of our day, perhaps then we can more easily learn to slow down in other parts of our days.
Maybe if we do more of the things that make us feel better, we can really be… better. Maybe.
I want you to try the Herbal Philosophy Teas and Lucy does, too. And that’s why she’s agreed to give away two tea tins of choice to one lucky reader.
