Merriam Webster defines tranquility as the state of freedom from disturbance, agitation or turmoil; steady or stable. And who couldn’t use a little tranquility from time to time?
When your day seems topsy turvy and as stormy as can be,
there’s nothing quite as tranquil as a hot cup of tea.
Over the last few weeks, I have felt like a hamster on a wheel, running until I’m exhausted, but never really getting anywhere! Or even catching up.
So, while David’s Tulsi Tranquility might not really live up to its name, I am looking forward to a time when I can pair it with a good book and my new recliner on the back porch!
This caffeine-free tea contains rosehip shells and seeds, apple, rose petals, hibiscus, red currants, raspberries, strawberries and tulsi, also known as holy basil. Tulsi is a sweet and aromatic herb thought to relieve anxiety, stress, acne, and respiratory issues such as the common cold. It may also reduce inflammation and pain, and boost the immune system.
Normally, tulsi is used as an oil in herbal medicines or steeped in boiling water, rather than for cooking because it has a bitter flavour. This tea reminds me of chamomile, but although you can taste the apple and berries, the tulsi adds a refreshing, peppery zing!
As for tranquility, well…maybe it’s time to rethink my approach to the wheel.Happy Monday!
