I love tea. Especially hot tea. I love the process of drinking tea…the boiling of the water, the emptying of the loose leaves into the tea pot, the steeping, and the first taste. I love the variety and how you can find a tea for every situation. You can have it first thing in the morning to get your day started, you can drink it to relax after a stressful day, and you can drink it to help you fall into a warm and cozy sleep.

I love the way that some teas allow you experience so many sensations at once. You can breathe in fruitiness, yet when you breathe out, taste a hint of mint. I love the unexpected flavors dancing around so eloquently across your tounge. I love the simplicity of a white tea, the relaxing nature of a  chamomile, and the burst of flavor that reminds me of the holidays in a chai.

I was at Tysons Corner the other day when I stumbled upon a store called “Teavana.” It’s literally a nirvana of tea. There was an entire wall of loose teas, just waiting for me to taste and buy them all. I was overwhelmed with bliss at all of the incredible options. I left with a bag of goodies. A decaf chai, and a white tea that was like meeting my soul mate upon first taste. I even got a cute little tea pot and an adorable cherry blossom tea cup. Sheer joy.

It may seem silly to some, because after all, it really is just a drink. But to me, it’s heaven. Poured steaming hot into a cup of deliciousness.
