If there’s one thing my colleagues at Aria know about me, it’s that I love tea.
At Aria, I bring in a “tea of the week” to share the power of tea. Each tea has a story and strikes a different, unique chord. It warms the soul and evokes many of my fondest memories.
This week, I brought in Moroccan Mint tea, a special one for me because of my Tunisian heritage. Having lived our lives mostly in France and the U.S., my sister and I had trouble connecting with our Muslim family. Drinking traditional sweet mint tea and looking out over the shore together was our way of overcoming that cultural and language barrier. The tea still reminds me of the Mediterranean breeze and the taste of the sickly-sweet Tunisian candies our aunts pushed into our hands.
