I had a sleep study done. I found out that stop breathing 28 times an hour. But, to find this out I had to sleep at the clinic with a ton of wires hooked up to me. The toughest thing was being woken up at 5am!!! I asked if I could pay more and sleep longer and they laughed and said "no". To stay awake I stopped at Starbucks to get a Chai Latte.
I have to say again, the Starbucks chai is nothing great. I really want to start my own tea shop and have serve some real tea.
I did learn that I need to sleep with a breathing machine. I hope I will feel more rested and have more energy once I use the machine on a regular basis.

I made chai ornaments for my co-workers this Christmas.
I put a chai mix, red candied sugar and marshmallows in the ornaments.
And, I did wash the ornaments out first- I wanted to be sure that they were sanitary.
I do know that some co-workers are not into chai, so I also purchased a hot coco mix too.
The ornaments with hot coco, I added peppermint candy canes too as well.

I took my collapsible to tea pots along to make several varieties at one time.
Getting my supplies ready. I even made tea tasting sheets -so they could have an idea of what flavors they should be tasting when trying the different teas.

What a fun day- letting students try different kinds of teas that they have never tried before. It was not the big class I had hoped for, but God really used the day to reach out and talk with students. I had more English time and more individual conversations with students this way then had we had an organized tea class. It was a really fun day! I love these students!!! They are so friendly, giving and kind.
Not having a organized class we did not use my tasting sheets. I look forward to having a tea class sometime soon to use my tasting sheets :)
Here I am sharing my tea!
