Welcome to my tea blog! Here, have a cup of tea :).

In this blog, I will be drinking a lot of tea, but I am willing to share! I also will talk about my quest to create a comtemplative tea lifestyle and slow things down so that I can enjoy my life more, and about how drinking tea brings peace to my day.

It, truly, is the pause that refreshes, and I am asking myself how I can create more of that and less of the crazy-buzy, hurry-to-get-to-the-next-thing energy that all too often adds pressure and tension to my day.

More Reasons Why You Need a Daily Tea Break

Those of us who work from home or stay at home with our kids never seem to schedule in time for ourselves to relax. Our daily focus often revolves around what still needs to be done and how we're going to do it.

But tea has a way of slowing us down long enough to breathe a little more deeply, let go of some of the tension that we often carry around unrecognized and allow enough space for insights and creative solutions to float into our minds. The ones that might make the rest of our day a little easier.

"So steep a small pot, retrieve a cup and saucer and renew your spirit. The tea break has a long tradition." ~~Kim Waller, The Art of Taking Tea.
