The best part of the day..

The best part of the day for me (other than seeing my boys smiling face in the playground at pick up)... is my first cup of tea upon waking.

I love tea.

I love the ritual.

The boiling of the water, the wait, the steam billowing up in the morning sunshine, the selection of your favourite mug, choosing which tea to have, the pour of the water, the timed brew, the sip...

ah ... that first sip.  It's bliss isn't it?

Nothing beats the relaxing therapy of tea... many a catastrophe, conversation, or story has been told over a good old cuppa.  My favourite all time favourite tipple is green tea.  I adore it.  High in anti-oxidants, good for my health and my skin.  It tastes so good, I dive in with every sip - it's comforting to me.

Just recently, I have tried fruit teas and herbal teas - with my attempt to live a more calmer, cleaner life.  One that is fuelled by my own energy and not relying on caffeine to help me get through!

Twinings have a wonderful range of herbal and fruit teas.  At the moment I am drinking their Morning Detox tea... a mix of Milk Thistle, tangy lemon rind, honey scented lime flowers and zesty lemon verbena.  It's bright and refreshing.  A perfect morning wake up.

What tea do you drink?
Are you tea bag dunker or a loose leaf tea potter?

Today I have been photographing Yixing teapots.
Cute aren't they?
I've been helping Dan to photograph these new products for Canton's website.
I am so worried I will drop one, so perfect and delicate, each one is hand crafted in China by small artisan potters, each are inspired by nature.  The top one above resembles a squash.
Perfect for drinking traditional green tea.
Speaking of which I need a cuppa!

time for tea...

Stopping for a break.
Mint tea in my new favourite cup and tea pot.
A spot of reading material too.
Lovely birthday gifts.
Happy days!


I have a new love.

Green Tea has always been my beverage of choice, but I used to buy Sainsbury's own fairtrade green tea.  Then I discovered this delicious tea.  It's how tea should taste.

I am in heaven.. goodbye sainsbury tea my taste buds are moving up in the world!

What's your tea / coffee of choice, I am open to new ideas.
