When you laugh,
there is more joy in the world.

When you love,
there is more love in the world.

When you are at peace,
there is more peace in the world.

The decision to form our Cup of Consciousness Meditation Mondays was more of a calling rather than anything else; much like it was for me to start up Discover Teas. This tea business was a way to express a purpose of spreading more love out into the world and to be a force for good in the community.

But the desire to be a source of light and love didn’t stop there at the tea leaf. Especially now in today’s world, I feel a need—a pull—to do my part to bring love, joy, and peace into the world as much as possible, whenever possible.

The main goal in doing this group meditation is for the purpose of making a positive impact on the energy of the world. Through guided visualization, the group actively and consciously spreads light, love, peace and joy out into the world. We’ve had such powerful experiences each time. This month will be our fourth meeting on May 22nd at 12 pm, and we anticipate it to keep growing with momentum.

If this is something that resonates with you to lend your energy to, feel free to join us. No experience necessary. There’s no fee, and it’s not a solicitation for business. You simply show up with a willingness and open heart. Even if you can’t make it physically, you are still welcome to sit in meditation wherever you are and connect with the group with your intention. The more the merrier, and more powerful!

Here’s what Brana, owner of Universal Energy Waves and Crystal Cosmopolitan, has to say about her experience participating in the event. Thank you Brana for being part of this!

Dear Chris,

Thank you for creating the Cup of Consciousness Monday for community meditations. Each of the three meditations were beautiful and each was unique.

The amazing energy created in today's group meditation continues to resonate through my day. The sense of expansion and joy to which you guided us today was beyond what words can express. I have been meditating since my early teens, and so it is not the fact that we are meditating but the purpose for which we are doing it that is creating this heightened sense of awareness and gratitude. Thank you for opening your heart and your space for those who want to create more joy in the world.

Introducing Afternoon Tea!

We've received our fair share of questions about afternoon tea over the past few years. As a tea shop with a lounge area like ours, it's certainly understandable. Who wouldn't want to spend an hour or two conversing with friends old and new over a few cups of tea and a delicious meal?

However, when a small crew like ours was spread over two locations, hosting events on such a grand scale would have been very difficult. We didn't want to shortchange our tea family by offering them an experience that wasn't up to our high standards, so in the past, we've had to answer those questions with a regretful, "no, I'm afraid we don't do afternoon tea here."

Now that we're all together in one place at Discover Teas in Newport News, we knew one of the things we wanted to start was something people have been asking us for since day one: Afternoon tea! We're happy to announce that starting February 24th, 2017, we will be hosting afternoon teas on a monthly basis. You can check our event calendar each month to see when that month's afternoon tea will be, or, of course, follow us on Facebook or sign up for our e-mail newsletter!

What will a Discover Teas Afternoon Tea look like? Glad you asked! In the U.S., many people think of "high tea" as a swanky affair involving fancy china, little sandwiches, and assorted sweets. In the U.K., however, high tea is actually a more casual affair more akin to what Americans would call dinner or supper, with much heavier fare such as meat pies, potato dishes, and sometimes roasts. A British afternoon tea is closer to what Americans think of as "high tea," and so we decided to go with that term in order to avoid excess confusion.

At our monthly Afternoon Teas, you will find a selection of our delicious loose-leaf teas, paired with a variety of courses from our catering partners. Our inaugural afternoon tea will be catered by our friends at Thank Goodness It's Homemade, who will provide us with a delectable display of delicacies to enjoy!

Since our Afternoon Teas are a catered event, a prepaid registration of $35 per person is required to attend. In order to get an accurate head count, our registration deadline for the February Afternoon Tea will be 6:00pm on Tuesday, February 21st. You can register by giving us a call at (757) 320-4033 or by stopping by the shop to pay. Bring a friend and enjoy Afternoon Tea with a Discover Teas twist, and don't worry—you can keep the pinkies down!
