Each cup of tea is a voyage

Marcus Aurelius, the last of the five good emperors of Rome, said, ‘People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills. There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . So constantly give yourself this retreat and renew yourself.

Recent research has revealed that people perform better at work and in life when they practice strategic renewal. You aren’t designed to run on high level without having a period of rest and relaxation. While there are no specific guidelines for how much relaxation a person should incorporate into their lifestyle, you need a time for relaxation.

Unfortunately, many people see relaxation time as something to sacrifice in exchange for productivity. When they’ve reached a breaking point, they take a vacation or flop onto the couch because they need some relief. But relaxation can be part of a holistic approach to well-being. When you make the time for yourself, you hit the reset button and allow your body and mind to come into balance. Tea is the only plant in the plant kingdom gifted with a unique combination to help you renew.

Each cup of tea is a voyage! It takes you on a unique experience.

A blend with a wonderful, yet delicately composed medley, and a malty flavor with warm, spicy and bold overtones is ideal to kickstart your day. To experience a true moment of calm when you are all anxious and wound up, an invigorating blend of lemongrass, basil, and peppermint can be an ideal choice. When you are looking for something to nudge your creativity, the fragrance of cinnamon laced with a hint of cardamom in your tea, is the perfect brew. Its delicate warm notes will embrace your body with a soothing warmth that’s just perfect to trigger your creative potential. When you don’t want to give into that post lunch slump - hibiscus tea, the deep red beverage with its a unique, complex, sweet and tart floral flavor can perk you up. Chamomile, the light bodied and delicate infusion with flowery notes can help you prepare for a good night's sleep.
