Tea With Rae: Get Out of God's Way!
By Rae Lewis-Thornton
February 9, 2011
Almost everyone who comes to my home for any length of time must have tea. So yesterday, I grabbed the opportunity to introduce two 8th graders to my tea ritual. They were actually here to interview me for their school project. Arami had Double Dark Chocolate Matte by The Republic of Tea and Tyanna had Strawberry Rose by ESP Emporium. Amari is a regular reader of my blog so she was really excited to experience my tea ritual. But Tyanna was so excited that when her mother arrived, she told her absolutely everything I shared with them about tea, and eventually I brewed up a cup of Teavana Zingiber Ginger Coconut for mom. The girls enjoyed their tea and I enjoyed explaining to them the best ways to have tea. These young ladies were a delight and a blessing. They even hung around and edited my first video. I am proud to feature Arami and Tyanna in my first video, "Get Out Of God's Way!" I hope that you will support my video project by subscribing to my You Tube Channel, and if one is compelling, please feel free to share it on your Facebook page.
