Tea is more than a beverage, it’s an herbal remedy.

This quote describes it well:

Tea began as a medicine and grew into a beverage. ~Okakura Kakuzō

Tea is a perfectly simple way to access the health benefits of herbs.

The quiet ritual of preparing and sipping a cup of tea is a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful practice.

Oh, and if you’re going to make your own tea, you might want one of these little beauties:

Stump tea pot

This ForLife Stump Tea Pot is usually used for loose tea, but also works with tea bags. It holds about 18 ounces and makes approximately two-three cups of tea. It’s perfect for one or two people. I love it. See my full tea collection here.
