“At Christmas, tea is compulsory.
Relatives are optional.”
– Robert Godden
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.
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.’
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!
‘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.’
‘Discover the healing touch of Green T Cup with ginger. It helps relieve nausea, dizziness and motion sickness. It relieves hangovers and is great in treating cough and cold. A refreshing brew with many a boon.’
They have a variety of flavors to choose from, so there’s something for everyone here:
- Orange Bang
- Cardamom Touch
- Ginger Tinger
- Original Green
- Mint Magic
- Lemon Lift
- Jasmine Aroma
Not just that, you can also select the quantity of green tea cups in your order, ranging from 30/60/90/250 Cups.
In my opinion the Green T Cup is perfect for those who travel a lot, or for people who like to have tea at work. It’s a great way to boost your metabolism, lose weight, it’s good for the heart and overall wellbeing….so give one a try today…trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

One amongst the basic 5 yoga principles is Meditation. Meditation is that practice which involves a steady observation of one’s mind. The practice requires one to focus the mind at a particular point in order to still the mind so you can clearly perceive what is known as the ‘self’. It is proven that through practicing Meditation, a person can over a period of time reach greater intellect, strength, will power and increased determination. Furthermore, yoga and meditation can help you attain a clear mind, increase concentration, and help you discover the tranquility and wisdom within you.
Focusing your attention a 100% in one particular area is what Meditation is all about. This practice brings with it a heap of well-revealed health benefits which includes an increase in concentration, decrease in anxiety, and the general emotion of happiness.
It is seen that people try meditation in great numbers, but only a small percentage of these people actually continue to meditate through life. Unfortunate as it is, I feel that a possible cause for the same is that majority beginners don’t understand the mindset which is required to make meditation practice sustainable.
This article talks about some practical recommendations which could help beginners to get past their initial hurdles:
▪Make meditation a formal, everyday practice. The only way for you to reach the next levels in meditation is by having a specific time where you sit still and meditate.
▪Always begin with concentrating on your breath. Deep breathing will slow your heart rate, relax all your muscles, help you focus your mind and is therefore the ideal way for you to start the practice.
▪You must stretch before you begin. Stretching will help loosen all your tendons and muscles and thereby comfortably letting you slip into the seated meditation posture. Furthermore, stretching kick starts the “going inward” process and brings an added volume of attention towards the body.
▪Always meditate with a purpose. All beginners should know that meditation’s an ACTIVE practice. To focus your attention at a single thought/target is very hard work, so you must be purposefully occupied!
▪Know that frustration will creep in. Beginners always fight with thoughts like “why am I here?”, “what am I doing?”, “why can’t I quiet my mind and focus my thoughts?” Whenever this happens, try focusing on your breathing and release all frustrated feelings. Free yourself of the objects in your mind.
▪Allow yourself to feel all parts of your body. When the meditative state has begun to take its hold, the beginner must become aware of his/her body. Once your mind becomes still and quiet, focus at your feet, slowly moving up from the feet (including all internal organs). If you can achieve this, know that you’re on the right track.
▪It’s good to have a specific room or spot for daily meditation sessions. Your meditation spot shouldn’t be the area where you sleep or work. Placing spiritual paraphernalia and candles inside this space will help you to feel comfortable.
▪Listening to relaxing music can be of great help to relax your mind if you’re in an agitated state. Don’t push yourself, just let go and relax.
▪Keep away from distractions. Beginners are usually easily distracted, so keep your cell phone on silent mode, rid your mind of daily duties, etc. the phone ringing, a coffee pot whistle or your kid crying may distract you and you won’t reach a deep relaxation state.
▪Beginners find it very challenging to meditate with their eyes closed. So use a candle. Light a candle and use it as the spot where you focus. This will help you strengthen attention span and can be extremely powerful.
I know, I know… It’s easier said than done…but if you’re really looking to find some peace of mind and stability, then I highly recommend giving Meditation a go….trust me you’ll never regret it 🙂
Before I say ha-bye… remember – Find what Feels Good! Give yourself some time and be true & honest with yourself….Chao! 🙂
Until we meet next…
