As I sit in my cube at work this morning I try to picture myself sitting out on my patio in the cool morning, my cozy sweater wrapped around my shoulders sipping a warm cup of tea. But then, the phone rings and someone comes up to ask me some random question and "poof" the dreams is gone.
Speaking of tea, I had seen the flowering teas online and was intrigued with the concept that I finally ordered some the other day on Amazon. It arrived on Friday and I could not wait to try it.
I used my French press to make it and it worked beautifully. The visual effect of the bloom slowly opening to reveal the delicate pink flowers within was amazing. It is green tea with jasmine and it was fragrant and flavorful. I added a teaspoon of Organic blue agave for a dash of sweetness and I just could not stop drinking it.
Today's menu consisted of:
Breakfast - almond milk, maca, cocoa powder and chia seed smoothie
Snack - peanut butter cookie lara bar
Lunch - market salad with smoked salmon, flax pita and 3 large strawberries
Snack - small apple
Dinner - 6" subway italian sub on flat bread with light oil and vinegar, bag of baked BBQ lays, unsweet tea.
