tea is special, isn’t it? well, unless you don’t like it, that is. in which case this probably isn’t the post for you.
for some, tea is just part of the habit of their day, weaved in without thought but enjoyed nevertheless, and for others it is a time carved out to take stock, to take a few moments and just relax. i go to tea when i’m stressed and need something simple and comforting to focus on. the whole process, from getting everything ready, to waiting for it to reach that perfect drinkable temperature (and of course, the best bit, drinking it) can really be a few minutes of zen in an otherwise stressful day.
green tea is my go to, i drink it almost as much as i drink water (a LOT) and i was recently given the chance to try some from jing tea. i was also sent one of their tea-ieres (which, in my opinion is so much better and simpler than any other loose leaf tea contraption i’ve tried) and some earl grey.
earl grey for me is ALL about the scent. i love bergamot with fierce intensity and the smell just instantly takes me to a good place, so when i drink it, it’s like i’m drinking some magical elixir. i wish it was actually magical but i’ll make do with a few moments of nasal happiness.
what does tea do for you? does it help you to focus or learn any habits to better yourself? or is it simply a thirst quencher? or, the all important question – what is your favourite kind of tea? i’m genuinely curious so do let me know.
jing have some lovely tea gift sets that would make fantastic presents for any tea lover in your life. it’s the best kind of gift too, because it just keeps giving. now, i’m off for another cuppa…
