Why Tea is a Great Snack

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

The visual, tactile, & olfactory experiences of preparing something in the kitchen.
The sensory enjoyment of holding the smooth warm mug and enjoying its beautiful shape and design.
The mood-elevation of the spicy, complex aromas.
The taste, the warmth, the oral stimulation of drinking tea, and the satisfaction of swallowing a hot beverage.
The tummy warmth & the sensation of fullness.
The satisfaction of getting all this pleasure from something that is not fattening and contributes to hydration.

    I like red (rooibos?) tea the best, but green tea is another favorite.

    Teavana has sales?

My fav is Smith's Jasmine Silver Tip No. 96 It is like drinking a cup of flowers.
Another is Tazo's Passion Flower, looks like I'm drinking wine.
There are many others too numerous to mention... but they are mostly herbal blends.

Happy NEW Year!!!
