Winter weather is perfect time to enjoy a cup of tea

I like tea. I hate colds. That’s why I wanted to try British tea brand Tetley Tea‘s new “Super Tea: Immunity” blends infused with vitamin C. Two people in the house have head colds right now. I do not intend to become the third.

Available in both green and herbal blends, both teas promise to provide 20 percent of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C to help support the normal function of the immune system. The green tea combines lemon, vitamin C and honey. The herbal tea is a slightly tart peach and orange infusion with vitamin C.

I prefer the green tea for the taste, but I have to drink the herbal blend after 4 p.m. or the caffeine will keep up me up at night. If nothing else, I enjoy how it warms me up from the inside on these relatively cold winter days! 🙂

Peace of mind By Diane Ako I like to reflect on life. Sometimes it’s philosophically. Sometimes it’s humorously. For all its beauty, life is far too difficult a journey to take alone. You need the support and connection with others to help carry you along the way. Writing brings me that connection– within and without. It clarifies my thoughts and feelings. It helps me reach out to others for advice, wisdom, or feedback. Your thoughts become your actions. Your actions become you. A wise yogi- Patanjali- said, “Speak what is true. Speak what is pleasant.” Let’s speak of things pleasant to one another and seek some peace of mind along the way. ABOUT Diane Ako joined Hawaii: In Real Life in October 2016.
