There’s nothing like a cup of scalding tea prepared to your taste to create a little oasis of calm in your day. Tea, or any soothing hot beverage, offers the opportunity to create a ritual.
The Japanese take making tea very seriously. The Japanese call it the way of tea and each step in service to hospitality adds to the experience. The English also take tea seriously, and it can range from a small snack to a full meal.
Whether you like your tea green or black, or you prefer hot water with mint and/or lemon, drinking something hot and thinking through the steps you take to prepare it are both excellent ways to create space in a busy day for you.
