Thank you hannaspring for this sample tea

I love the Olympics! I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion that I had dreams of being an Olympian myself. My brother and I spent many years (beginning at 4th grade) as swimmers in talent rich Santa Clara Valley. When I turned 15 and was not a champion, I switched sports to track and trained for the next 14 years in discus and then shot putt. Yes, mama was a power lifter, strong woman! During the time of Bruce Jenner, and many other track stars, the best throwers in the World were all training with me. It was a fantastic experience! (I eventually had a knee injury that side lined me for good).
The biggest honor was meeting Jessie Owen just at a private session for athletes. We had lunch together and talked one-on-one. He wrote me a little note which I treasure.

So, last night I was cheering on the all the athletes. I know what the years of hard work are all about.
I chose a nice chamomile tea sample to drink because I didn’t want any caffeine and I have no chamomile tea of my own at all! It’s not something I’m really familiar with outside of a blend. It was high time that I try it.
The yellow brew was fragrant and sweet, reminding me of playing in the fields when I was young and then drinking sweet cream soda. The two together wrapped in a hot drink.

Very good and soothing. Fr. Evan told me that all the people in Greece drink this tea all the time and serve it to the children, putting in some honey and lemon. I’ll have to try that too.

Thank you hannaspring, I’ll have to get some more chamomile tea now that I know it’s so tasty!

Go U.S.A. Go Canada and Go wherever Steepsters are from! Go Olympians!

I love the Olympics too.
I really am not into watching any other kind of sports, I think I save it all for the Olympics:)

I agree! My niece Kara is in the Special Olympics as a swimmer! We’re best buddies too!

Helena

I feel bad because I don’t watch but then I don’t watch sports at all. I do however support the Olympics in all its forms and the athletes who train for it :D

Bonnie

It’s ok not to like or watch sports. My mom watched bowling on tv…yawn…but some people love it. I love lots of things fortunately too besides sports.

Go Kara! That is so exciting Bonnie!
I have a good friend (R. Ross) who just did synchronized diving today. His family of 39 came to watch him in London! I guess he had his own cheering section! :)

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Also, not a sports girl. But I have mad Olympic love and watch as much as I can when it’s on.
