Alternative Events to Enjoy a Cup of Tea

The Art of Making Tea

Today we are perhaps in too much of a hurry to enjoy a well-crafted cup of tea that the art has turned into a tea bag in a cup, losing the nutrients in the hot vapour. To enhance the flavour and quality of a cup of tea, it should be prepared in a pot with a lid. Which seals in the vapour with the nutrients and they run back down inside the pot into the infusion.

Spiritual Properties of Tea

Did you know that the various varieties of tea have spiritual meaning and properties?

There are a number of herbal teas that have spiritual properties such as nettle, lavender, camomile, peppermint and ginger.

Camomile helps attract abundance. It relaxes you, allowing you to be more receptive. No wonder we Brits love a good cup of tea!
