i have come to appreciate winter more than years past. it's a season of rest on the farm & i so appreciate seeing my farmer rest. i love creating cozy spots within our farmhouse during the winter months. of course, nothing's quite as cozy as a warm cup of tea.
i've always appreciated tea from afar, but up until this summer's adventures throughout europe, i never was much of a tea drinker myself. this winter, i have been trading in my afternoon cup of coffee for hot tea.
i recently visited my local tea shop & purchased a handful of loose teas that i love. i also grabbed a box of kusmi tea while in nyc & it's by far my favorite. the taste is perfect & i adore the cloth bags.
in an effort to stay more present this year (my word for 2016), i am spending just a few present moments each winter day with a cup of warm tea in hand. it's a moment of pause & an opportunity to regroup among a flurry of to-do's.
i'd love for you to share your thoughts on your own tea time rituals & perhaps your favorite teas that you think i should try!
