Mint Medley has become a favorite and I find myself reaching for this tea tin almost everyday. And now that it feels like someone is sitting on my chest and I have a mean cough, I'm sure it will help to relieve some of this congestion in my chest.
Mint Medley has been in my tea cup more than any tea as of late. I fell in love with the writers of the Harlem Renaissance period and the more I read the more I wanted to read.
It gave me purpose for my own life and the courage to fight the good fight and never surrender. Something intoxicating about the smell of the book and the story it brings to life.
Reading brings me joy, and these days with my health in the balance, I find solace in my books.
Let me say right off the bat, according to a California law, it is against the law for a person with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) to have sex and not disclosure that information to their sexual partner prior to the sexual encounter.
(And there lays the biggest problem for me; the criminalization of a medical condition.) Whether the STD is Herpes or HIV, the law requires disclosure.
I’m so excited and I’m grateful to everyone who wants to be a part of this venture. This Month We are Reading When I first heard about the lawsuit against Usher, I made no attempt to learn any of the details.
I dismissed that shit weeks ago when I heard about the supposedly green discharge coming out of Usher's penis, (which is not a symptom of herpes) but was claimed in the first alleged law suit according to the tabloid outlets. But really, personally, I respect Usher's right to privacy so I had decided to let it ride. But then after the press conference yesterday with the woman who is suing Usher because he could have infected her, but didn't, I thought that maybe I needed to weigh in.
And yes, when I can, I have tea everyday at about P. I love to invite my friends over for tea and cupcakes and so far everyone thinks it’s a delightful experience. Yes, I’m a tea snob, I prefer loose tea but I do like some bags also. When I open the can of Mint Medley, From The Persimmon Tree Tea Company, I feel as if I stepped into a garden of peppermint leaves.
It is a perfect blend of organic peppermint and spearmint leaves grown in the US. It relieves muscle aches, headaches, migraines, stress.
Reading is the one thing that the pain of my life could never take away from me. And even today, living with AIDS, books continue to be the safest place for me.
