From the title, I imagine you can guess what today’s topic will cover. I would love to share with you something that is very near and dear to my heart. Tea! This is just an introductory letter to my beloved friend and a place for me to open up about my addiction to tea and how you too can start yours!
BY ALL MEANS… I am not a tea expert or sommelier. However, I have tried and tested millions of types of teas over the years, be it bagged or loose leave teas. I am also very fickle about how I have my teas, its preparation and the organic mixtures to create that perfect brew.
My Tea Story
I guess you can say this love/hate addiction began at a young age. I’d probably say I was about 10 years old, when I became curious about tea and trying new things. Which lead me to venture into the tea market and the diverse world of teas. Don’t ask me why, I just did. It was in college when I started experimenting and finding my particular tea palette.
How did we get here?
I think for anyone who is beginning to educate themselves on tea; we walk into this “world of tea” a bit confused. Because we’re really not sure on what is tea culture, what should be mixed with what or our own personal preference.
We learn though tea experimenting. The best possible method of finding your perfect inter cup of happiness. Tea discovery was a very fun time for me because I really enjoyed trying out all types of tea and sharing them with friends, family and co-workers. There are some many personal touches that you can add to them to create a great brew. Not to mention the many types of mixtures, spices, scents, vitamins and minerals. It’s literally a world to discover trying teas from other countries understanding the actual tea culture behind it and how people of those countries enjoy and celebrate their way of taking tea. It’s very eye opening and educational.
And if that wasn’t enough to be all “gung ho” on becoming a tea addict, check the health benefits that you receive from having tea. Something that can benefit health enthusiast. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a few of the topics I would love to explore with you!
