Steep Thoughts: The 'Thank you Universe for Giving Us Tea' edition

This afternoon I am steeping a Darjeeling from TeaGschwendner, eagerly anticipating the comfort of that first sip. After a long night with a sick baby and then a full morning, I have been craving the familiar taste of this tea. It always amazes me how flavors and scents can bring instant comfort (or do the opposite). Pure enjoyment or nostalgia, connecting the sensation to a favorite memory.

Playing a favorite song on Spotify and sipping this tea has given me a few minutes of peace. I feel my mood change almost instantaneously. Now on to the rest of this crazy day! How do you use tea to get through your busiest days?
