But the show, as they say, must go on.
Recently, at a conference where I was speaking, the host introduced me with the kind words of, "Listening to Jen is like warm milk and cookies." After my voice gave out this month, I had to warn my clients that listening to me was going to be more like whiskey and cigarettes. - at best. Never have I been more grateful for a package of tea than I was with Spicely Organics' care package.
I felt like I had my own private in-house apothecary. Full disclosure: I don't typically care for rooibos, but I was inexplicably drawn to the Ginger Calendula Organic Rooibos. It was the perfect, gentle, soothing blend for my raw throat.
From there, I indulged in some Jasmine Cacao, a beautifully balanced organic Japanese green tea blend that had a floral hint that harmonized so nicely with the earthy cacao.
In the early afternoon, I brewed some Organic Earl Grey and allowed myself to feel very British, stiff upper lip and all that, encouraging my throat to rally.
Late afternoon, I tried the Unwind Tulsi Tea. The gentle rose and cinnamon gave me one last gentle push to help me get through my day.
With my tour of teas, I was able to get through one more day of non-stop talk. So, thank you Spicely Organics - you allowed me to continue to work with pleasure!
