This will come of no surprise

Everyday pampering: A fresh pot of loose leaf tea and a moment to stop and be.

My current favourites:

*Rooibos (red tea, dried raspberries)
*French earl grey (black tea, hibiscus, rose petal, sunflower blossoms, bergamot)
*Plum blossom (green tea leaves hand-bound with string)

hot and steaming, cool and iced, lukewarm (having been momentarily forgotten), white, brown, black with a squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of honey, a splash of milk, a sprig of mint, a hint of sorrow, a smile of joy, with marmalade toast, a slice of cake, a gingersnap, a handful of almonds, a peeled mandarin, with a loving mum, beside colourful strangers, in a kitchen, on the front step, in a thermace on a ferry...

Oh the possibilities of having tea -

How about you?


  1. "Any old how, matter o' fact, I've got it now!"

  2. Yes yes!
    Earl Gray for me this past morn!

  3. both of your posts, yoga and tea, are two of my absolute favorite things.
    i agree with everything you said about yoga, that is how i see it, yoga = happiness in the body and mind.
    tea = warmth, calm, joy

    you are just the best really,
    have a great and relaxing night Emily.

    p.s i just did yoga, and this morning i made myself chai, with ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
    those were my two pleasures of the day. :)

  4. Rooibos = Absolute favorite!

    I also love Earl Grey and Pomegranate Green tea. Oh! How could I forget Ginger?

  5. Tea with you anytime, any-kind, is a treat Emily!
    I look forward to the next time we can share a cup together.

  6. Ooh La La, the French Earl Grey sounds most divine!!! :-)

  7. Mmm I've been drinking lots of fenugreek (good for my milk) and Earl Grey (good for my soul)!
