Tea for two
And flowers too.
Traditionally in China, drinking tea was an opportunity for meditation and contemplation. Sipping a cup of tea is an art of connecting mind, body and soul.
I begin each day with a cup of strong black freshly brewed tea I buy from a Chinese tea shop. I especially love an oriental blend of Earl Grey. It awakens my senses by taste and aroma. Tea and flowers seem to go together. They are mingled in this Earl Grey blend and they are often blended together in tea parties and soirees. They seem to complement one another with their sense of grace and sophistication. Ladies don hats and heels for a tea party. They enter into laughter and conversation when gathered around a table with tea pot, scones and dainty sandwiches. Tea and flowers….what a heady bouquet of interconnectedness. Tea anyone?
