Tea is the perfect drink. It can be enjoyed in solitude as well as with friends, acquaintances, and perfect strangers. It’s a social bonder, relaxing and upping your mood, but it also gives you energy and focus to enjoy a good book. It comes in a great variety of blends, so you will never tire of it. It can help you drift smoothly to the land of nod when you are tired after a day’s work. It picks up your mood in the morning, and can turn breakfast into a flowering of beauty, much like a flowering tea.
I’ve been passionate about tea for quite a while now, starting with a period in my life when I was living with a boyfriend on coffee, tea, biscuits/crackers, and pizza. Most fresh vegetables and fruit, yogurt, and other more expensive foodstuffs were rather scarce in our life, making an appearance only in the first ten days of each month. But we were happy: we had coffee, tea, and each other, and we were trying out new creative pursuits, which were enriching our lives immensely.
I am going through similar feelings these days when I create coffee and tea slogans and taglines, or when I browse Pinterest for coffee and tea quotes, and other inspirational statements. I’m back to a good place professionally, even though life is far more complicated now than it was in my twenties.
