Honoring Tea Time
Tea time is an integral part of the day--after lunch and before dinner, right when you need a little lift.
Today, a personal tea time is needed more than ever! With Covid-19 Coronavirus causing us to shelter in place. We are working from home, home-schooling, worrying about groceries and toilet paper, worried about breathing and touching anything...it's stressful!
Tea, as a beverage and as an event, can help mentally and physically bring ease to the day. The process of taking tea: drawing water for the kettle, listening for the water to reach the proper temperature; carefully measuring the tea, all bring a sense of order. Then a sense of relaxation when sitting with a warm cup in your hand, breathing in the aroma of the tea, Aaah. It's what we need to do. Taking the time to do this will help give our bodies a little respite so we can carry on with our day with a little more grace and energy.
Cheers to tea!
