Tea

Samurai means “to serve.”

Tamurai means “to serve through tea.”

AT TAMURAI TEA OUR GOAL IS TO HONOR THE SPIRIT OF HEALTH AND WELL-BEING.

We begin with the selection and consumption of high quality tea. Through the consumption of tea, we make the connection to the earth and the sun. As our astronauts and NASA researchers continue to learn, only the connection to our earth, our atmospherically filtered sunlight, and that which they produce can sustain life as we know it.   Through this connection and creation, our mind, body, and soul are supplied with a cascade of life sustaining nutrients and antioxidants. Certain combinations of these nutrients are found only in the various teas created by our wonderful planet. The teas we support and supply are organic due to the fact tea is one of the few consumable products which makes its way directly from field to cup without any cleaning or washing. If a tea plant or tea field is sprayed with toxic harmful chemicals or fertilizers, they are consumed with the tea.  An additional consideration is that when consuming the highest quality of tea: the first growth, the earliest picking; the highest concentration of nutrients are consumed.  Older tea leaves are found to be out of balance, with higher concentrations of minerals that may be harmful to our health.

Nature designs tea to be consumed at a slower pace, so we encourage tea to explore the internal universe within each of us. As we unfold the discoveries within, we can then make the peaceful and harmonious connections with those we encounter in life. These connections whether individual or shared bring much satisfaction and joy. It is with this spirit of joy we thank you for sharing your journey of tea, spirit, and life. It is with great honor that we recommend and make available the products and services contained within.

 “I have three treasures, which I guard and keep.  The first is compassion.  The second is economy.  The third is humility.  From compassion comes courage.  From economy comes the means to be generous.  From humility comes responsible leadership.”  —Lao-Tse

Once we are on the journey of balance, we are then ready to seek the harmony of the “me/we” relationship that allows the healing of our world and those of its inhabitants.  We learn of how we connect and influence community.  We learn and share the vibrations that are so subtle, but yet so powerful.  These vibrations can only be felt with the heart and measured by the health and harmony of our internal and external environments.

We begin our quest with tea, share it through meditation & prayer, and grow it through our understanding and developing awareness as keys to unlock the secrets within.  Meditation & prayer unfolds Lao Tse’s compassionate courage, tea flowers the economy of generosity, and our growing humility through understanding allows us to lead others by example.

Ingredients:

Organic Partridge Berry, Organic Rose Hips, Organic Passion Flower, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Ginger, Organic Damiana, Organic Roses and wild harvested conventional Muira Puama herb.

Blender’s Notes:In the mood for love? Wild-harvested Muira Puama– the precious inner bark of a Brazilian riverside tree– has been historically used as a potent aphrodisiac. This is a Cinnamon-y and very earth-y tea, lovely tea that is confirmed by many to be very relaxing and a “mind calmer”. We hope it makes you feel “In the mood” for love, or relaxation, or whatever you desire most. Naturally caffeine-free.

Mindfulness Meditation on Love and the Heart Chakra 

Enliven your heart with this simple exercise…

Being told that we are loved is not the same as feeling loved. Knowing that the sun is shining by looking through a window is a very different experience than actually going outside & feeling the warm sunshine on your bare skin.
It is a healthy & happy person who both knows that they are loved, and feels that they are loved.
Basking in the warmth and light that is created from having a deep connection to others  is life-giving.

Below is a simple exercise  that can help you to improve your outlook,  enliven your heart, open your mind,  help you to be more kind,  more loving, and more accepting of both yourself and others.

This is a “Loving- Kindness” exercise that will assist in healing and opening your heart.  I truly hope that you enjoy!

Here’s what you do…

* Assume a  comfortable, seated position. Close your eyes and start to breath deeply and slowly. Relax.

* Visualize someone you love very much. Direct all your attention to this person you love. Let your heart open towards this person as you think about them. Next, mentally direct these words to your loved one:
“May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be safe. May you be at ease.”
Repeat this 3 times.
Sit for a few moments and marinate in the positive energy you’ve just created inside of yourself .
Allow this goodness to  permeate your entire body. Imagine your cells bathing in this fresh, new energy.

* Now picture yourself in the mirror. Focusing intently on yourself, take a deep breath, and with all of your heart, wish for yourself:
“May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be safe. May you be at ease.”
Repeat 3 times.
Rest.

*  Next, picture someone who is a stranger to you. Bring this unknown person to the forefront of your mind, take a deep breath, and again wish these same blessings to this stranger: “May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be safe. May you be at ease.”
Repeat 3 times.
Rest.

*  Finally, see someone you don’t like. This could be someone who recently hurt or upset you, or someone that you have been harboring ill-will towards for a very long time, or just someone that you feel uncomfortable around and can’t seem to connect with or relate to.
Picture this person, and gently pull them into your heart as you offer this person the same loving gifts that you practiced with the others in this exercise:
“May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be safe. May you be at ease.”
Repeat 3 times.
Rest.

As you enliven the Chakra of the heart with each practice, we hope that you will enjoy the  happiness, warmth and gentleness that forgiveness brings.
We are all one, made with love from the same Creator and Source of all Life- God.
Your life is not a journey…it is an awakening process!

Enjoy yourself. Be at peace. Be well. 

From our hearts to yours, 
The Light of Day Farm Family
