Well…. we are halfway through this Journey Home and we’ve been tested and we’ve had joy and we’ve had wild emotions and we have made it through so far.
We’ve witnessed my cousin Toni’s reunion with her dad and her while U.S. family, we witnessed his reunion with his brother. I’ve had a beautiful reunion with a childhood friend. It’s just been an amazing journey filled with new and renewed love.
And the best part, in my mind, is that my business… this business… this little tea company that I️ have plugged away at day in and day out has been the means by which we were able to make all of this happen.
Congrats Sunshine Teas Louisiana for being a strong supporter of adoptees and adoptee first family reunions.
Coming up…. my reunion. And I am so excited and thrilled to be able meet my sisters and my aunties and my nieces and nephews and my step mother. What a huge blessing all of this.
Is it a physical place where you lay your head or is it inside your heart when you feel at peace?
For Sunshine Teas owner, Sara Heslin Woods, the journey home is both physical and spiritual. Home is represented by both the physical through her returning to her birth place and also visiting the birth place of her father, as well as represented by the spiritual- a returning to the Original Source of Love. A return to the Love of her Fsther- both ohysical and spiritual.
The merging of the spiritual and physical have always been a priority for Sunshine Teas Louisiana. Our special blends of a tea, a fruit and a flower, made with love in a deliberately peaceful environment embody the principle that a strong mind equals a strong body. We also strongly believe that what you consume affects your vibration and therefore your emotions.
Sunshine Teas is going home!!!!
A journey that started many years ago, in the Enchanted Mountains of the Southern Tier of New York is coming full circle.
Sara Heslin Woods, the owner of Sunshine Teas, has been on a quest to find her biological family for a number of years.
She has finally found her answers and is about to embark on a trip of a lifetime- first visiting her birth father’s birth home in North Carolina to witness the miracle of her cousin, Toni’s reunion with her birth father. Then on to New York, where Sara will meet her paternal birth family.
It’s a season of miracles and restoration and you are invited to come along!
We will be blogging everyday – we will also be filmed by a major British television studio- so look for us to be represented there!
Please consider joining us by buying the t-shirt that will be on television to represent that you are part of this journey.
Let the Sunshine In!

Enlightenment Tea – Buddha Tea (Linden), Lotus and Pineapple
Sunshine Tea Louisiana’s Enlightenment Tea is a tea that is designed with your spiritual growth and physical health in mind. In addition to the nutrients and medicinal properties of all three ingredients, there is a special traditional spiritual aspect to every ingredient added with the express purpose of elevating your potential to meet your highest self.
First and foremost is the Lotus Flower. The Lotus has long been a symbol of enlightenment. In Hindu and Buddhist mythology, many deities are represented sitting on a lotus blossom or carrying a lotus. It is seen as a symbol of the sacred feminine creative energy. It serves at the bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds. In the Kama Sutra, the most skilled woman in the art of love making is the Louts Woman. In Ayurveda practices, the Lotus is a symbol of eternity, purity and divinity. True enlightenment can only be achieved when the physical, spiritual and intellectual are in perfect alignment and all chakra are flowing. Drinking the Lotus flower will help aid in the alignment of these energies in the quest for your highest self.
On a physical level, Lotus flowers can help with skin tone and gastrointestinal and reproductive issues like acid reflux, as well as help with male prolonged intimacy issues. They are rich with iron and nutrients and can also assist in melanin production and helps prevent grey hairs.
The second ingredient in Enlightenment Tea is Linden. Linden, also called Buddha Tea, is well known for it’s calming and soothing properties. A calm and meditative body and soul are key to bringing yourself to enlightenment. Linden can assist those doing vibration work. It helps us build an evolved circuit board that will more easily integrate with the rising planetary vibration. It also simultaneously keeps us grounded. No words can do justice to this pillar of light or the profound way it can help us move through this time with greater ease and grace. Linden is especially helpful for people born before 1978 because we have an outdated circuit board that needs to be updated. Linden assists in this updating.
The physical health benefits of Linden are largely due to the high concentration of phytonutrients, flavonoids, and other diaphoretic substances. In addition to reducing stress and anxiety, it has a high level of anti-oxidants that help in the reduction of free radicals in the body. Quercetin and kaempferol both act as free radical scavengers, eliminating these harmful byproducts of cellular respiration from your system and improving your overall health by preventing chronic disease. These are particularly effective for protecting the skin against signs of aging and exposure to the sun as you age. Linden also has P-coumaric acid which induces sweating that helps break a fever and helps reduce inflammation that causes pain from arthritis and tension headaches.
The final ingredient in Enlightenment Tea is Pineapple. Pineapples have long been associated with friendship and hospitality. It is also name a pineapple because of its pinecone like appearance. From an enlightenment standpoint, the pinecone is one of the most recognized universal symbols, seen in temples on religious art throughout the ages. Pine cones are symbols of the pineal gland, which is also called the Third Eye, or also the Seat of the Soul. Pineapples in Enlightenment Tea plays the final chord in the trilogy of enlightenment aids.
From a health perspective pineapples’ nutritional benefits are as fascinating as their anatomy. Pineapples contain high amounts of vitamin C and manganese. These tropical treats are also a good way to get important dietary fiber and bromelain (an enzyme). “As well as having high amounts of manganese, which is important for antioxidant defenses, pineapples also contain high amounts of thiamin, a B vitamin that is involved in energy production,” Flores said.
Pineapple contains half of the daily-recommended value of vitamin C, according to the FDA. Vitamin C is a primary water-soluble antioxidant that fights cell damage, this makes vitamin C a helpful fighter against problems such as heart disease and joint pain.
Pineapple may help you keep standing tall and strong. The fruit contains nearly 75 percent of the daily-recommended value of the mineral manganese, which is essential in developing strong bones and connective tissue, and may be helpful in preventing osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. Finally, pineapples can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a disease that affects the eyes as people age, due in part to its high amount of vitamin C and the antioxidants it contains,
Enlightenment Tea combines Buddha Tea (Linden), Lotus Flower and Pineapple for a sweet flavorful brew. Not only strong in nutritional value in aiding keeping your body strong and healthy, Enlightenment Tea brings three distinct enlightenment devices together in one special brew.

Sunshine Tea’s Tea of the Month for September is Big Orange. It is a blend of Rooibos Tea, Calendula and Oranges. Not only is it the perfect tea to play homage to Autumn colors, it is also an homage to one of my favorite college teams, the Tennessee Vols. (Also my alma mater).
Rooibois is a tea grown on a bush in the Cederberg (West Cape Province) region of South Africa. It is commonly known as bush tea (especially in Southern Africa) or sometimes redbush tea (especially in Great Britain It is also consider a much more flavorful tea than green, white, and black teas.
