Kaleidoscope of T.E.A.
Marlys Arnold of Adventures with Tea is a member of our Kaleidoscope group, which recently added a feature we call “Magic from our Members.” Marlys, her husband, Alan & their “Adventures with Tea” brand provide us with magic we call “Kaleidoscope of T.E.A.”
- We blend the monthly forecast I brew, steeped in T.E.A. (Thoughts, Energy & Actions).
- We then pair it with a tea recommended by the Arnolds … one that represents the energy of the month, plus the adventures & experiences brought to mind.
Our Kaleidoscope of T.E.A. for October is A Walk in the Woods, a clean, smooth green tea with just a hint of walnut. According to Marlys, “We chose it for several reasons. Like the name suggests, this flavor is great for clearing your head and being open to what your senses are experiencing. We thought that paired well with the idea of listening to and discerning wise ways. It also hints at the Robert Frost poem of two paths in the woods, presenting a choice. And having walnuts in the mix is good for brain health!”
About Marlys & Arnold Alan and Adventures with Tea
When Alan & Marlys Arnold launched their own line of artisan teas, they chose the name Adventures with Tea to emphasize that tea can be fun and creative, in addition to being tasty and healthy. But they don’t stop at promoting tea as a beverage – they also include it as an ingredient in everything from main dishes to desserts. Over the past two decades, they’ve developed hundreds of tea-infused recipes, many of which have been published in their eMagazine and blog. They teach cooking classes, and are authors of the Tea Explorations Journal. They’re also currently working on a cookbook.
