Tea for me is like the rising and setting of the sun. I have my ritual of drinking it when I wake and before I go to sleep. My morning tea is usually something stimulating, a chai tea with ginger or peppermint is sure to get me going. I’m not a morning person, so having a little help in the morning for me goes a long way. As for the evening, typically I’ll have chamomile hibiscus tea, and sometimes I’ll add some other ingredients to that. I really love a good heart opening, sensual tea for the evenings. Today, I was inspired to write a post as my tea was most delicious and made me feel delightful! 🙂
My best teas usually don’t have ingredients measured out and I kind of just get into this flow where I intuitively grab the ingredients that seem right for that particular moment in time. I’d encourage you to try this once you have a good handle on herbs and their properties. Just as our best memories can’t be replicated, I believe there’s something to the magic of the moment and just going with what calls to you in a kind of meditative way. Finding joy in simple things, like making tea, can help us fight anxiety and depression. It’s all about the process, right? Not always about the final product or destination in life.
