Welcome to my new weekly blog post… Sunday Joie de Vivre.
Each Sunday I will be sharing things that I love and the simplest little things that make me smile and brighten up my day.
This week’s subject is Tea. I love nothing more than to get out the beautiful Burleigh teapot that my Nan bought me for my birthday a few years ago and fill the kettle. I have an old fashioned hob top kettle. It’s pink and I love the cheerful whistling sound that it makes when the water boils!
I then throw in a teabag (earl grey, assam or darjeeling) and cover it with boiling water and wait…. three minutes later it’s ready, and after a splash of milk (no sugar!) I fill my cup (which is either a china tea cup or a glass bodum one) and enjoy a delicious, lovingly prepared cup of tea! If i’m really treating myself i’ll dunk in a couple of biscuits (i love gingernuts and bourbons!).
If I can’t really be bothered with the whole teapot experience, I’ll make a mug of tea in one of my favourite mugs, either the “Piglet” one that my Dad bought me, the “Moomin” one from my mum, or the “Pig of Happiness” mug from my brother. I love the pig of happiness mug, as it’s cute illustration always makes me smile! As you can probably tell, I like pigs!
Tea is great for all occasions… when you’re sad, catching up with friends, with your breakfast, when you’re poorly or with a piece of cake. I also love a green tea after yoga and start every day with a shot of Teapigs Matcha Superpower Green Tea.
So what are you waiting for… stick the kettle on and relax with a lovely cup of tea!
