Tea Love: Instilling a Love of Tea, One Sip At A Time

Cold Tea for Hot Days, Hot Tea for Cold Days, Warm Tea for Autumn Days, There Is Never A Down Season for Tea

The very act of pouring a cup of tea is, in of itself, awe-inspiring and calming.   The rich aromas that waft from a cup of berry tea, the light dance from a cup of white tea, the robust blast from a cup of black tea, all titillate the senses and stimulate the soul.

But what exactly is the allure of this intoxicating beverage that has captivated the hearts and minds of drinkers for centuries?   After all, something must have made passionate tea drinkers return again and again, even hosting parties where the main beverage was not beer nor wine, but tea.

In this blog, I’ll be exploring the wonders of tea from the perspective of a self-proclaimed “tea-aholic,” explaining more about the history of tea, the medicinal benefits and sprinkling in some recipes along the way.   Feel welcome to experiment with this magical beverage, let me know your thoughts and, of course, enjoy as we explore just how amazing this drink truly is.

    I’m primarily a coffee lover, but I do enjoy a good tea, especially after a hard day at the office when a beer would make me sleepy, and another coffee jittery.

    I regard tea at this point to be especially soothing.

    • I sometimes indulge in a good cup of coffee as well but you’re right, it can make you jittery and is terrible if you are trying to go to bed but want something hot.

      In the book, “Tea Celebrations, The Way to Serenity” by Alexandra Stoddard, the author alludes to tea being Zen-like and refers to a lot of Taoism when talking about tea. I guess you’re not the only one to regard tea as soothing!

  5. I am a tea drinker only when I don’t feel well…or a hot summer day with a cold ice tea. I am a definite coffee lover, almost obsessed with it!

    • Actually, tea was originally used strictly for medicinal usage! You’re just being traditional, I guess 🙂
