In Love with Tea

If you’re reading this, chance are you’re in love with tea. With all the pages that exist on the World Wide Web, here you are on a blog that is dedicated madly to a single plant that goes by the name Camellia Sinensis. You are in good company, as there are thousands of people at this very moment pursuing this and other sites devoted to the same object of affection – tea. Good thing there is enough to go around for everyone.

What starts as a passing sip, or a casual drink, blooms into a rapture of obsession. The more you drink tea, the deeper you fall in love with it. Yes, tea has been known to capture the hearts and minds of people around the world for thousands of years.

When you are sick, it heals you. When you are sad, tea lifts you up. When you are cold, it warms you. When you are stressed a cup of tea will relax you. Tea is good company. Tea invites company. Tea can be a whole party. Tea is nourishing. Tea watches over your health. Tea even protects your heart.

It’s okay to love tea, because tea loves you back.

So this Valentine’s Day, share your love of tea with someone special. Let it warm your hands and your hearts. Let the steam warm the tip of your nose. Drink it slowly as you delve into some heartfelt conversations. As you drink your tea, feel the golden liquid warm your throat and belly. Drinking tea is like receiving a massage from the inside – it’s no wonder why we feel so good after we drink it!

And if the person that you would love most to sit down to tea with is miles apart, then send them a small note or card with a single bag of your favorite tea in it and perhaps adding this little poem.

I wish we could sit down together
And have a cup of tea
But since we can’t
When you have this one
I hope you’ll think of me.
