Green T Cup | Best Find of 2016!


“At Christmas, tea is compulsory.

Relatives are optional.”

I can’t believe December is already here….this year just flew by! I hope you’re all doing very well & are in festive spirits ❤

Today I’m really excited to share with you my Best find for 2016… the Green T Cup!

Last week while Karan & I were visiting our parents, my mum introduced me to this amazing green tea.

Karan’s always loved green tea, but me on the other hand – I’ve never been a fan – simply because I think it’s boring and bitter….well, not anymore! Thanks to the Green T Cup I’m slowly developing a liking for this amazing tea for health.

Green T Cup

Let’s have a look at what the makers have to say:

‘Green T Cup is a patent pending, quality food product from Hale Beverages, a company with a vision to seek success through products that promote universal health and well-being.
Our manufacturing plant is based out of Chennai, South India while our base of organic farmers and suppliers are located around Coimbatore, and other places in the Southern peninsula.
Now you can enjoy a restful and rejuvenating sip of green tea, anytime and anywhere with Green-T-Cup! It comes with a special infusion layer all you have to do it pour hot water and wait a few minutes. Green Tea is rich in flavonoids, known for anti-oxidant action.’

Green T cup Ginger Singer

The flavor I tried was called Ginger-Tinger….isn’t that adorable?!

I love the packaging to begin with, it is absolute GENIUS! A cup with green tea at the bottom…. all you need to do is pour hot water and voila! your green tea is ready!

Green T cup packaging‘This flavor is one of the best combinations of Green T Cup. Ginger Tinger is best suited for people who have a tendency to suffer from nausea, dizziness or have hangovers. We are always advised to have ginger during a long travel to keep us away from motion sickness. So with this drink one can travel with taste and also avoid motion sickness.’

Cactus Plants – My Favourite Houseplants!

 

“Use plants to bring life.”

– Douglas Wilson

So true…isn’t it? 🙂

I have a new love, and no it’s not handbags and shoes or makeup this time….it’s a bit different you see – it’s PLANTS! Haha! Yes, plants 🙂

I moved to Mumbai 3 years ago into an apartment and now when I sit & think what’s the one thing I miss the most about the house I grew up in, it’s the garden! All the greenery, lush, beautiful trees and gorgeous plants & flowers…walking bare feet on grass early morning…ah! how I miss all of that.

So I decided to bring a little green life into our home here in Mumbai and the best way to do that was choose easy-to-care-for houseplants….hmphh…well not as easy as it sounds! The first couple of plants I brought in died soon after and it broke my heart every single time 😦

Little by little I read, watched and learned…and today I have a house full of plants…in every room and every corner… beautiful, healthy, green, lush plants and believe you me – it’s the NICEST feeling in the world to see something grow and flourish as you care for it ❤

Enough said, let me show you a few I’m loving at the moment…here is a sneak peek into my cactus plants – the BEST houseplants if you ask me!

Here I have an Aloe Vera plant, a bunch of Haworthia Limifolia Gigantea and a Grafted Cactus.

This baby you see here is one of my absolute favourites in the house. I spotted my big aloe vera plant with this pup jutting out from the side and decided to repot it. Aloe Vera is one of the easiest cacti/succulent to repot, but it only grows from pups or babies. I once tried my hand at propagating an aloe vera using a leaf cutting and NOPE, that does not work!

This is one of my recent cactus plants and isn’t it gorgeous!? I fell in love with it at first sight and knew it would make me happy every time I sat at my desk to work 🙂

The best part was that this one too had two pups that I separated and repotted into small ceramic pots and they are the CUTEST things ever!

And last but not the least is my Grafted Cactus 🙂

This one is probably not to everyone’s taste, but I love it! At first I thought it was a cactus that had a flower, but upon reading more about it I found that this is actually two different species of cacti that are grafted together to make a hybrid…how awesome is that!?

For me this is my most unique houseplant and I can’t wait to see how this grows.

And before we wrap it up, here are a few extras thrown in!

Can’t get enough of this baby cactus!

Thank you all for sticking with me till the end 🙂

I hope this post made your day in whatever small way possible and has inspired you to add a bit of green with plants and specially Cactus in your living space or work space.

These plants are great stress-busters for me and I love starting my day by admiring how well they’re doing in the house… a bit of care and some TLC is all they need and they’ll fill your space with good vibes and a lot of freshness!

Until we meet next lovelies!
