There’s a certain cozy feeling that goes into waking up, boiling some water and preparing a cup of tea. It’s a ritual the clears the mind and prepares me for the day. I can catch up on a new book while the water is boiling and truly indulge when I sit down to sip. I may be a coffee obsessed being, but even the thought of tea makes me want to wind down. Being alone with my thoughts is always a scary feeling. They can go from goals and aspirations to a thorough to-do list of all I things I have yet to accomplish. But, scary is good sometimes. I’ve discovered the more I allow myself to face those fears, the more likely I am to turn them around. Make them work for me! It’s a ritual I make sure I have time for.
This past week I’ve been waking up earlier prepared to be alone with my thoughts. But, the tea ritual went through a makeover. There’s no steeping and every cup is the perfect blend of pure tea. Pique, the new tea people, make Crystalized tea. They turn organic loose leaf tea into perfect crystals that only need hot water to turn into the perfect cup. There’s no bitter taste is you’ve let it steep for too long because there’s no way to ruin your cup. Just pour the crystals, add hot water and it’s ready.
Since it comes in individual packages, I’m already planning to take some hot water on my thermos and hitting the road. My favorite flavor has become jasmine. It’s so calming, ideal to start off a hectic day. Which reminds me, is it just me or do things work out for themselves when you have a clear mind and a great intention set?
