I woke up this morning to “Blessed” by Martina McBride – an oldie but goodie – and it was a nice reminder to be thankful. The sun is shining; it’s Friday; life is good. Sorry for the cheese, let’s move on to the good stuff.
I showed up to work and there are some free RX Bars to try. Right now, there’s a promo going on to get a sample box of 12 bars for $20. I like these because they are protein bars (perfect after early morning workouts) and they’re made with only a few ingredients. They are healthy and delicious, and unlike a lot of protein bars nowadays, these are actually filling. And they are great for taking artsy pics.
I’ve had a crazy last two weeks with work – I worked until around 1 am every night, including a Friday night! So finally, when my project wrapped up at 5 pm I was definitely ready to celebrate. There was the Atlanta Brunch Festival on Saturday morning and then the Lee Fields show at Terminal West, so a super lazy Sunday was absolutely necessary.
My friend was in town from Chicago so we decided to try out the new tea room a few blocks down the street from me. There’s a random winter cold front hitting the country, right when we thought spring was coming, so it was the perfect day for the tea room. We both decided to do a tea flight, which was $6 for three tea tastings. We tried an assortment of wellness teas: relaxation, calming, detox, weight loss, stress relief, overall wellness. My personal favorite was the Poet’s Wellness tea. It contains camomile, lavender, calendula petals, Rooibos, almond pieces, and has hints of vanilla – we each ended up buying a bag of this. Tea has so many benefits and I’m excited about coming here more often.
Additionally, it was a nice change of pace and a chic unique thing to do. They also serve high tea for $25, so that is next on my list! If you live in Atlanta, you should definitely try out the Tipple + Rose Tea Parlor and Apothecary.
What’s your favorite tea?
