T2 Tea for me.

20110904-103505.jpg

I am a HUGE lover of tea and tea pots. HUGE.
So my brother and sister-in-law hit the nail on the head when they recently gave me a lovely new tea pot and some T2 tea as a birthday gift! This is my first time trying T2 tea, and I knew it would be love at first sip just from sniffing the box as I took it out of the wrapping paper. The kind I’m trying tonight is Monk Pear. It’s deliciously fragrant! It’s a lovely Chinese black tea that has hits of Bergamot, sweet pear and jasmine blossoms. Deeeelish! I feel so content sipping this tea, feeling the warmth of the cup in my hands. I’m so relaxed.

‘Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future’. – Tich Nat Hahn.

This is how I’m drinking my tea tonight. It’s giving me a stillness similar to after meditation. I guess there’s a certain ritual in drinking hot tea. The breath is slow and even between sips. And time slows as I sit, relax, knowing my children are safely tucked away in their beds.

‘A Proper Tea is much nicer than a Very Nearly Tea, which is one you forget about afterwards’. – A. A. Milne.

T2 Monk Pear is definitely a Proper Tea. One that I will be remembering every night and look forward to embracing before my bed calls me to sleep.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had tea this good!
