Tea Revives you

Early on in my romance with tea, or looking at it now it was probably an inseparable facet of that budding love-story, it occurred to me that tea was one of those rare "universals" in our world. One that, with regard to the place of importance it holds across cultures, sits in the company of those other great tenets of humankind- love, anger, sorrow, birth, death... Wait, come again? How is it that tea might be equated to the strongest and most translatable of human experiences? Well, that's what this post is about.

Close your eyes. Lift up your cup of tea, and inhale the aroma. How do you feel? Does the scent of your tea trigger a memory for you? Is it a fond one? Scientists have found that scents, can in fact trigger memory. Scent is actually the strongest sense that triggers memory. So it's no wonder that every time I have a cup of the Jasmine Pearls from CTH, I am tea memoriesoverwhelmed with peacefulness.

Twelve long years ago, I was pregnant with my first child. I was due anytime, and helping out in my parents cafe back home. As pregnant as I was, I spent a lot of time sitting in an old white rocking chair, in front of the bay windows in the cafe. I loved to sit there, watching the people go by, the snow drifting in the air. Sitting in the chair, my hand on my abundant belly, feeling hope, pride and nervous excitement.

tea memories

For my "maiden post" I thought I would tell you a bit about how I got here. I got my love for tea and all things tea from my mom. She, of course, gave me my first tea set... It was a child's set made of China, with beautiful yellow roses and gold trim. Tea parties were among the few girlie things I did as a child. I have two older brothers and was a bit (understatement) of a tom boy. I still have some of the pieces from my childhood sets, but most were broken... I retain the pieces like fragments of those memories.
