Tea & Romance…A Match Made in Heaven

Sipping Tea Together Can be a Very Unifying Experience

Please excuse this delayed Valentines day post.  (If you are still in the mood for some chocolate and roses, then our chocolate rooibos blend is for you, and thankfully there are a few bags of Valentine Fusion still on the shelves.)  I must say:

ITS NEVER TOO LATE FOR A LITTLE LOVIN’

Recently I have re-discovered this truth along with my husband, over sipping some HOT tea.  It should be an herbal blend, enough to spark a little interest (in the beverage and each other) so a spiced blend is always a good option.  Add an almond cookie, scone or biscotti to the tray with hot brewed Luscious Lemon, sit cozy on the sofa, and talk as you sip..who knows where it will lead??

Now this emphasis on the sofa is reflective of the current economical conditions that have many of us spending more time at home then usual.  Not all of us can have a romantic foray, say in a place like Quebec City, at the most romantic french cafe nestled on the cobblestone roads of the Old City.  So since we can’t all TRAVEL for real as much as we like, lets travel through tea (Traveler’s Tea, wink, wink) and make a new discovery in each other. 

In the meantime, please humor me and answer this question:  What is the most romantic cup of tea you ever had?  Looking forward to your response.   

May your cup be full with delicious organic tea & LOVE, LOVE, LOVE…

Skip Therapy-Drink Tea

WHEN PRESENTED WITH A MORE THEN MOUNTAINOUS  problem, most often a matter of the heart, my late Great Aunt Frances used to say to my mom, and other love-lorn women I’m sure, “Make a cup of tea and roll with it”.

ROLL. WITH. IT.

Move over Freud & Dr. Phil, there is a new Dr. Joyce Brothers in town! (Actually she is no longer with us, but her spirit and the memory of her is one to be reckoned with.)

Which brings me to the point.  Some times problem solving is as simple as sipping a steaming cup of tea. (Organic loose tea, preferably)  The act itself, brewing tea, becomes a calm inducing ritual, forcing one to chill out while waiting for the water to boil, and then another waiting period while the tea brews. These moments lend themselves to self-reflection. We slow down, get back our grasp of reality.  Maybe this isn’t as big a problem as we think.  Maybe the solution is a phone call away to a close friend or loving relative.

Better yet, share this ritual with a friend.  Sitting across from one another, mug in hand, wrap your fingers, prayer like, around the warm ceramic, and step outside of your own troubles for a moment, focusing on the person across from you. Listen intently. Punctuate the conversation with brief sips of tea, a reprieve  from the seriousness of your talk.  Once the vessels have been drained of their healing liquid, you will feel better.  Yes better.

Guaranteed.
