Tea is many things—the preferred drink of the ancients, a source of comfort and warmth, a way to deliver healthful elements like vitamins and antioxidants right into our post-holiday-indulgence bodies, and a connection to cultures around the world. But what we like best about tea is that, as renowned author and expert Diana Rosen puts it in The Book of Green Tea, “tea is a retreat in a cup. Tea is quite literally ‘therapy in a cup,’ a way to sort out, think through, resolve to do. Tea gives you permission to relax, to be in the moment, and to be truly who you are.”
Since we’re all about free therapy and tasty tidbits, we suggest you pick up one or more of these global-minded teas. Then head on over to the Mariage Frères website for some tips on brewing the perfect cup.
