Green tea for me

dsc07468.JPG

The ancient Chinese tea ritual is an essential part of the Chinese culture. Green tea is not only refreshing but also a fantastic antioxidant for the body.  The ritual has quite a rythmic action, the pouring of the water and tea relaxes you as you sit down and drink a few rounds of green tea.  The social aspect is what has kept the ritual alive for thousands of years, people taking time out from their day to gather together and enjoy a refreshing tea.  Today it seems the fashion to parade around with a ‘take away decaf trim latte!’ But we need to slow down and rediscover the rituals which make up our everyday life and enjoy the moments we engage with the objects which emcompass these rituals.
