You Can Bask In The Love of Tea
Tea can improve your low mood, or elevate your high one. You can feel the love when you sit down and mindfully enjoy your cup of tea. Hot tea on a hot day produces a sweat that cools you in the breeze. Listening to soft music, and feeling its’ healing properties running through your body, and seeing the juices of the beautiful flowers and leaves blossoming in your body, and knowing that they were grown for your experience and cared for by so many hands before they reached yours. An infusion of the eternal love of nature.
You can prepare the tea in a beautiful china pot or a favorite earthenware cup, perhaps a souvenir from a beloved memory, or a gift from a friend. Your longing for your friends company will be erased with the curative drink, whose fragrance will make it feel like they are having tea with you. The first birthday gift I ever remember receiving was a child's mini ceramic tea set, to have a tea party at the table with.
Tea is an experience that you will never forget. It is not an addiction, but a blessing! It is a purifying, clarifying tonic to be savored and enjoyed. It is medicine for the soul. Love Annie the tea grannie xo
