“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Make Tea Part of Your Day...
As a young adult, tea was replaced with coffee and it wouldn't be until I found myself living in Toronto for work, that I would re-discover the wonderful delights of tea. My girlfriends and I would take Afternoon Tea when we could at The Four Seasons Hotel; The King Edward Hotel ...we couldn't imagine anything better. That is until The Windsor Arms Hotel re-opened and offered Afternoon Tea!

It's a time when my mind actually quietens and I'm able to just be in the moment ~ almost meditative like.
Whether on your own or with friends, I encourage you to MAKE the TIME to create your own Daily Tea Ritual. At home or work ~ all you require is the basics: kettle to boil water, a teapot, a teacup and saucer, tea (loose leaf or bag) and a place to sit an enjoy! It will be the best 30 minutes (minimum time I suggest) of your day.
