Remember how, as a child, you would host tea parties? This is sort of a right of passage for young girls. At some point however, we grow out of it. We replace our teacups with soda cans, sport “waters”, energy drinks and of course coffee. However the allure of a tea party remains.
I drink a lot of peppermint tea. (Apparently it has a lot of health benefits: it can calm an upset stomach, clear congestions, fights stress and can even help to control minor asthma. Also, it is caffeine-free—so no jitters. And did I mention it is light and refreshing?) But even for an avid tea drinker such as myself, the art of the tea party has gone by the wayside.
But why?!?! Tea has such lovely lackadaisical connotations: an afternoon spent with friends— talking about everything and nothing at the same time. It is a time to sit back, relax, and enjoy some good conversation.
So, I am beginning a campaign to bring back tea! And I am starting with the mighty teapot. No longer will you heat a single mug of water. No! Instead we will sit down and enjoy a pot that we can share with friends. To get you in the mood, I have cultivated a collection of some beautiful pots… enjoy!
