Here are three small steps to cultivating gratitude:
~ Allow yourself to be in the present: Honest gratitude requires honest attention. Take a brief moment everyday to stop, unplug and focus on the present and allow nothing else to exist outside of that.
~ Acknowledge gratitude by turning inward: Think about the gifts that have been given to you and about how it made you feel. Then think about the gifts that you have given.
~ Seek to repay that which you have received: Once we allow ourselves to receive and then feel appreciative, the final step is to express gratitude through words and deeds. This final step completes the circle and heightens the personal experience of gratitude.
This holiday season, set your intention to experience gratitude and see what effects it has on your view of yourself and others.

What an Enlightening Show!
SEN CHA turned over a new leaf at the San Francisco fancy food show 2012! We stuffed our flex fuel SUV to capacity and road tripped up the 5 to San Francisco…sometimes taking more than one lane (look out David!). With new flavors, new packaging, and a new tradeshow booth – it all got greener. Yes, now even our tradeshow booth is eco friendly. Our new flavor blends were a smash hit, with Bombay Chai and Tropical Mango drawing the most attention. Besides seeing new and old friends at the show, we hosted a mixer at Samovar (thanks for hanging out 2 Leaves & a Bud and little i!) and sampled some delicious chai along with some delectable butternut squash dumplings and yummy cheese plates.
Enough about us - Here are SEN CHA’s top palette pleasers:

We are the first mint company in the USA to implement a solar-powered manufacturing facility. This green energy is the equivalent of planting almost 2,000 trees per year, as measured by carbon dioxide emissions.
We're excited to introduce brand-new containers for our Green Tea Mints: sleek, newly-designed tubes made of 65% post-consumer materials, which have the added bonus of being 100% biodegradable. We have also redesigned our rounded mint tins and modified the materials to be 100% recyclable as well.
Green Tea Flavors
Our SEN CHA line of Green Tea Mints now consists of five luscious flavors. In addition to the Original Green Tea, we are introducing four brand-new flavors that are hot off the tea fields: Bombay Chai, Pink Dragonfruit, Tropical Mango, and Moroccan Mint. As always, SEN CHA Mints continue to be 100% natural, vegan, and sugar/caffeine/gluten-free, and now all mint varieties are also 100% GMO-free.
Green Tea-Designed Website
We're so proud of our newly-redesigned website, created by the talented designers at Green Tea Group. Final edits are still being made, but you can click here to have a peek around.
We hope you enjoy our new designs & flavors as much as we do! Our new product containers and mint flavors will be ready to ship out March 15th, but if you can't wait that long, they will also be on display this weekend at the 37th annual Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. Stop by Booth #336 to say hello and try some yummy samples!
