The Mysterious Gold Leaf Gift
This year, members of the faculty have been finding the strangest freebies in our pigeon hole. Well, I call them strange because these items have an uncanny knack for coming in at the right time. I needed a notebook for my studies and voila! We suddenly have free, high-quality notebooks.
This time around, a few select professors and instructors seem to have received this box in our pigeon holes:
We actually do not know where it’s from and who gave it. One thing’s for sure: we are very thankful for this. Tea, especially chamomile, has a calming effect and it helped relax us. This something we need, since we are in a job that requires a whole chunk of brain power and patience. Now that finals week is nearing, we are also at our most stressed. This bundle couldn’t have arrived at a better time.
I was actually intrigued by this packaging. I have bought Gold Leaf before but this is the first time I’ve seen them be meticulous about appearances. Not only that, it also has a short write-up inside that tells of how beneficial tea is to our health: “reduced cholesterol, controlled high blood pressure and lowered risk of heart attack, stroke and cancer.”
I’m not quite sure about it being able to “suppress the aging process” but I do know that drinking green tea is good for your digestion if you make a habit of it after every meal.
See? We got a complete set. These also happen to be my favorite tea flavors. I still wonder who plopped these into our pigeon holes. Whoever you are, you have my utmost thanks!
