Ways to make your teatime more calming

Adopting a calming daily tea routine can help create structure and settle anxieties, especially during this stressful pandemic period. Whether you want a warm mug to gently start your morning, or to have a cup before bed to help you sleep or, we have a few tips to help you take a moment to center yourself. 

Read on below to find our recommended teas and tips to start a calming tea routine, to fade away the stress and anxiety with everyday routines.

 

Journal While You Sip

Journaling is a great way to declutter your mind. While you sip on your favourite tea, also start penning down your thoughts in a journal - and it could be just about anything! Your feelings, your to-do list, or a tea-log. Its great therapy, and a memory to look back on in the years to come!

 

Use Tea in Your Bath

Let’s get this on! Make your bath routine even more relaxing by adding some tea leaves to your bath. DOnt be afraid to throw in some flowers and herbs while you’re at it, to create an aromatherapy experience. And needless to say, candles are a must. Tune into your favourite songs, or unwind with your favourite novel.

 

Make it a Special Treat

Spice up the everyday tea with some honey, sugar or a dash of milk. Or better still, bring out the cookies, crumpets, and scones to make your tea drinking experience all the more special.

 

Turn the Process of Preparing Tea into a Meditation

Drinking tea can be a great way to practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is a practice that can help you focus on the present moment by acknowledging the senses. So when you brew a cup of tea, you can think about what the tea smells like, notice the shape and color of the tea leaves, listen to the sound of the kettle as your water heats, and taste the flavors of the tea. This practice is a simple way to meditate, and can help put your mind in a calm state.

 

Use Your Favorite Teaware

Everything gets better with your favourite tea mug, warm in your palms. Whether it has sentimental value or if it’s a beautiful handcrafted work of art, your favorite mug can boost your mood. It’s the little things that make ordinary moments like your afternoon cup of tea feel special.


Drink Tea Before Bed

These days, when you might be spending more time at home than usual, it’s important to create separation between your nighttime routine and your work space. One way to do this is to wind down each night with a cup of tea, away from screens. Brew yourself a mug of a blend that encourages restful, deep sleep and read a good book.

We recommend Chamomile Pure Herbal Tea or the Lavender Rosemary Tea to unwind with before hitting the pillow.
