“German tea company Hälssen & Lyon together with creative agency Kolle Rebbe have created and released a limited edition special tea calendar. Each list in this calendar turns into a cup of flavored drink. Technology of production of “edible” calendar is fairly simple, but done manually. High quality tea leaves are crushed and processed into a paste, then pressed into a fairly thin sheets. From these sheets they cut pages of the calendar and then stamp date and month by food coloring. To make a tea you just need fill the cup with calendar sheet with boiling water. All the fragments are sorted by calendar days in advance of the week – their names printed on the packaging of the tea set. Producers promise that all 365 pages of the calendar will be made from different varieties of tea , which means that each new day will be marked with a new tea flavor. To date, unusual calendar can taste only business partners of Hälssen & Lyon – mass production of The Tea Calender wasn’t discussed yet.”
Pretty cool concept in my opinion.
A interesting route to a healthier lifestyle.
"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.
As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.
He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.
Some inspiring things he said;
"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"
"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"
"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."
"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”
