Check them out.

Ruby Red Goodbye

So many things are lost...

Among them, and more recently, one of our favorite teas.

Diane's recent shopping trip to Trader Joe's led her to discover that their Spiced Rooibos Ruby Red Chai had been discontinued. The staff was very kind about it. They offered her a box of their other Rooibos Tea, which is not a spicy tea at all, or their other Chai Tea, which is a black Tea with the Caffeine that she was trying to avoid.

I did check around online and I have discovered that, like Twinkies in the zombie apocalypse, the last of these boxes is becoming a hot commodity.

I have also found that when you are already feeling a sense of loss, losing something familiar, however small and inconsequential it might seem, causes extra amplified feelings of loss.

Goodby, Ruby Red, goodbye.
