Pale Blue Dot
created by: Eleanor Justice
This blend is an *almost* exact duplicate of my blend Aggregate Of Our Joy, but is a response to the request to have the entire passage that inspired the tea on the label. It's a pretty basic label, but it's also lovely to read while brewing your tea. The tea, of course, is wonderful.

'...Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.'
