Tea And It's Wonders



When   our  stomach  feel   hungry   we   feed   him    with   food  .

When   our   soul   is   hungry   we   give   her   Tea  :)

 Food    and   tea  both   effect   our   body   in   totally  opposite  way.

We   need    bit  of  rest   after   Food .

But  when  we     want  to  rest   our   mind   we   need  Tea.

Tea   has   definitely   something  to  do  with  our   creative   side   because   it   boosts    our  imagination .

I   bet  tea  has  contributed  A lot  in  all   kinds  of   arts   sprung  within  Lofty  minds!

I  wonder   what   world   would   have  been   if  there  was   no   such  soul   refreshing   drink ?

If   you  have   to  well  come  new  day   you  will  do  so   by   SIPPING   YOUR  TEA  :)

Your   eyes   will    move   upon   views  meanwhile   or  on newspaper  may  be,

  but   your   spirit   will   slowly  spread   her   wings   wider   and   wider    while   taking  in  warm   delicious   tea :)

A  gloomy   sunset   can   sadden   you   for   while  until  sip   of   tea   travels   from  your  mouth   to  down  in  your   belly  .

I  believe   it's   soothing   smoky   delicate  warmth  stimulate  your   thoughts ,  turn   it   towards   positivity    and  sublimity . And   you   think   there  is  still  tomorrow :)

It   is   dazzling   how  Tea   bring   changes  to   your  moods.


It  can   cool  down   your   Hot   mood .And    on  the  other  hand   if  you   feeling  Cool   it  can   warm  you  :)

I   saw   how   tea   provoke  discussions . And  at  one  point   when   opponents    seem   to   get   in  fight   Tea   served   on  Right  time   can  save   the  day  :)





There   are   morning   teas  and  evening  teas   as  well   because   during  both   times   our   mind   needs  a  PUSH  to   feel  active   and  motivated .

My   parents   were   hugely   fond   of  Tea. Specially   father .He   would   feel  need  for  tea    after  each   two   hour .

Mom  was  health  conscious   though  but   she  would   take  tea  atleast   four   times  a  day.

Mom  was   always  annoyed   when  father  would  ask  for  after   while  on  weekends  when  he  was  on  home.

There  were   small   cute  fights  which   would   made  us  smile   but   sometimes  they   turn  little  serious  which  would  upset  us.

Our  tea   is  simple  to  make  . Back   in  village  tea  water  was  boiled  first , then   added   loose  tea  and  sugar   and  finally  milk. 

Whole  process  take   hardly   20   minutes.

Here   in  hubby's  city   we   boil   water   and  milk  together  for  ten  minutes  and  then  add  sugar   and  tea  .After   adding  both   i    boil  it  just  for  one  minute   though  people  boil  it  for  long .

I  do  so  because  it  is healthier  way  which i  learnt  from  doctor  who's  interview  i  listened once  long  long  ago .
Unlike   my   younger  sister  i   was  Tea  fan,  really   big  actually.

I  would   take  almost  five  to  six  cup  of  tea  each  day.

Back  in  my  village   my   friends  and  relatives  know   so  well  that  when  i  am  guest  at  their   house   no  soft  drink  is  needed  only  tea :)

How   can  i  forget  beautiful   rainy  days  when  i  had  book  in  one  hand  and   cup  of  tea  in  other .

I    would   take   sip   of  tea  and   then take   swing  ,it   was  MAGICAL EXPERIENCE  and  is  still UNFORGETTABLE !

Poetry   and   pros   both   would  flow  smoothly   in  my  mind  and  i  would   get  up  and  start   writing   robotically.

By  the   time  i  had  to  reduce   my  tea . I   can  hardly  have  two   cup  of  tea  everyday.

I  don't   think  it  was  mere  an  accident  that  tea   leaves   dropped  in  Shen Nung 's   boiling   water  , 

It  was  another  message   of  nature   for  man   to    show  the   way   of  AWAKENING   THE  SOUL!

Hope  you  guys  also  tea  as  well  but   how  many  times  of  the  day  ,when  and  did  you  guys  also  reduced  amount  of  tea ?

  2. I love tea. I tend to like it with just boiling water and no milk or sugar. I seem to be unusual in that respect. I always have tea in the morning these days. I often also drink it I in the afternoon. It is a wonderful drink.

  9. My mother and grandmothers had the kettle on a stove and tea was continuously being drunk throughout the day; we have a modern kettle in our house but we still drink lots of tea, maybe 6 or 8 cups a day. We love tee, the first drink of the day for me and usually the last too!

  10. What a fascinating topic, dear Baili!
    It was very interesting to read how you prepare the tea. I would like to drink tea more often, but for practical reasons I usually drink coffee.

  12. I wish I could still drink tea but it does not agree with me . . . I miss it! I am glad you can enjoy yours so much. It was very interesting to read how you make tea. Here we heat the teapot by swishing some hot water in it and emptying it. Then put the teabag, two or more, in the teapot and add boiling water. Set on low heat for a few minutes to steep, then pour into cups. Then people add whatever they prefer, sugar, milk or cream, or both. Some people boil the tea after adding the water but it makes it very strong. Green tea only became popular here about ten years ago. Most people still drink black tea. I have had to learn to do without a hot drink but I do enjoy almond milk and just plain water instead :)

  13. I won't say I am sorry that you can't take tea anymore because we all go through problems followed by agging dear Jenny so it is better to listen to our body otherwise she won't listen us :)

    I know I too will have learn survive without tea because I am realizing how my stomach has started resistance against it slowly

    Boiling tea after adding ingredients makes it toxic

    I am glad almond drink is there for you my friend:)

  16. Tea time is such a special time of day, isn't it? My favorite teas are English Breakfast, green tea, and chamomile. Enjoy your tea during the day, Baili. It's such a relaxing time when we can drown out the noises in the world and sit back and think and dream and pray and listen. : )

  18. I enjoy tea as well, Baili, but find that the colder months are when I have it more often in the evenings. I enjoy fruit-flavored teas and do not put anything other than hot water over the tea bags. I have never used loose tea, but know many others who enjoy it, but I admit to being lazy and so use a tea bag all the time. I also enjoy iced tea and like you do not drink any soda, except for seltzer which is carbonated but has no sugar added.

  21. Hi! Baily, an interesting topic.I love tea, but now-a-days, I take tea only once and the rest, black coffee is my beverage. Nicely elaborated.

  22. What a lovely "Ode to Tea." I can see how much you love it, Baili! Now, if you substituted "coffee" for "tea" everywhere you would know how much I love coffee!!! I enjoy tea and appreciate it wherever it is served to me. I would dearly love sharing a cup of tea with you!
