Invite some calm into your busy life and enjoy an exquisite cup of tea with mindful intention
Tea and mindfulness are the perfect companion. According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, “mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally.” Mindfulness can have a positive effect on your well being. By practising mindfulness or meditation on a regular basis it can reduce stress levels, improve mood, improve attention span and improve creativity as well as many other benefits
Introducing mindfulness to a simple task like having a cup of tea can help us enjoy mindful moments throughout the day. The simple act of choosing, making, pouring and drinking a cup of tea can awaken our senses and focus our minds.
When enjoying a cup of tea intentionally you really want it to be the best it can be, so when you do focus on the tea you can really appreciate everything that has gone into it. Most people enjoy a cup of tea on a daily basis, but how many people can actually say they fully enjoy their tea when they take a sip?
We have selected the very best tea, handpicked whole leaf tea from the most prestigious tea gardens in Darjeeling and Assam and the mindfully packed in the UK. Set aside some time to make a proper cup, listen to the water boil in the kettle, watch the leaves dance as you add the hot water to the cup, notice the colour of the water change as the tea steeps and breathe in the aroma as you take your first sip.
Mindfulness can easily be introduced into your lives with some very simple adjustments. We have designed some simple Tea Meditations for you to enjoy and help you invite some calm into your day. Allow yourself to enjoy at least one proper cup of tea a day, with mindful intention.
