Ah, tea…it is an ancient magical potion filled with powers able to soothe, to relax, to rejuvenate…
The morning starter drink(unless you like coffee, bleh! lol) that settles the mind for the day ahead. The midday need-a-break drink, and the nighttime stress reliever….
It is comfort in a cup, a warm niceness, an anxiety soother, and a companion to a good book….
Such variety, such perfection, in tiny leaves of wonderfulness. It can be robust, it can be subtle…. strong, or light….good hot, or ice cold. Lukewarm even….
Black, green, white, red and herbal…. to help colds, to help nerves, to give clarity, to wake up the taste buds while relaxing the mind. Health benefits abound….
Teapots are fun. Colorful, imaginative, or both….
No dainty tea cup for me though….I like mine in a big sturdy cup, so I can wrap my hands around it, and soak up the warmth. Sip, sip, sip….pinky down. 😀
