Manish - I am Full of Shit

I overslept on my earlier nap today. Ty calls and is like "are you sleeping, I'm coming over" I'm like "No, No, I'm always up", not feeling like taking a verbal berating in my fragile state. I think we both knew I was full of shit.

I thought I was done. I had no extra naps last night, and felt good throughout. But I slept right through the alarm this morning. I had turned down the volume on my computer to listen to some music and forgot to turn it back up before the nap. Also, I think I might be associating the wake up song with sleep now that I've had it waking me up 10+ times in 2 days. So now I have a presleep ritual:

1. Check volume
2. Check timer
3. Change the song.

Introducing Californian Persian Black Tea

On Samovar

This week I want to introduce you to Samovar California Persian Organic Black Tea. A custom blend that we formulated here at Samovar Tea Lounge, you won't find this modern take on classic Persian black tea anywhere else. This tea pays homage to the classic black tea scented with bergamot oil, jasmine flowers, and rose buds, but then kicks it up a notch with a dose of orange peel and cardamom seeds. I think you'll love the resulting brew: soft floral and citrusy notes balanced by spicy, brisk undertones. Californian Persian is a versatile tea and fantasic to drink straight up, but it also works with a shot of milk and sugar--in essence, the Middle Eastern version of Earl Grey, another tea scented with the citrus fruit bergamot.
