Funny story, I went to this thread and noticed not only was I using the same cup, but the same tea as Augustus! xD Hibiscus is such a lovely tea.
My story actually involves this tea. When I first started struggling with anxiety, I found few things could calm me down. But this tea really helped me slow my heart rate, calm me down, especially when combined with some deep breathing. I don't even know why, my mom just told me it would help, and I wanted to sincerely believe it would. Now, whenever I'm feeling anxious, I like to drink a cup and, while it's not always foolproof, it often helps a lot.
Now tell me something you remember, eyes are open, ears are hearing, something far away but nearing, something bubbling into view, something gone made now and new.
