Ethereal Tea

It is easy to lose myself in a magic that is otherworldly, for this world holds no charm compared to that of my mind.

Ever since I was a little child, I have always lived with half of me in this world and the other half lost in my thoughts. Imagination was my biggest friend and the worlds I conjured up were always better than anything this world could be. As I was setting up to click pictures for this post, those feeling of wonder that surrounded my childhood came rushing back to me. As we grow up, we forget to keep that awe and fascination alive inside of us, we lose the sense of wonderment that gives magic to life. Continue reading

A Quick Little Update

Every cup of tea is an amazing, imaginary, heavenly journey!

Hello dear reader. I had a nice little post planned for today since I’m trying to post regularly every week. But sadness related things happened (college coursework) and I am here instead with a little update that I had promised some weeks ago.

Tea and Wanderlust

“All I really want to do is spend my life travelling the world, reading books that take my breath away, drinking all kinds of tea and occasionally writing something.”

Here’s the thing about dreamers, their hearts and souls are forever restless. And so is the case with me. I don’t know who wrote the above quote, but I have never read something that describes my desires quite so well. It is the definition of bliss for me.

I was gripped by a particularly strong sense of wanderlust while sipping some tropical fruit tea the other day. This tea, by Lipton was another little present from my sister. The name is aptly given, since you can really taste the tropics in this sweet and mellow tea. It was a bittersweet experience for me, because although I immensely enjoyed the tea, the intense yearning for the gypsy life left me a little low. Here I am, wishing to travel and read and float through life, and what I really must do is prepare for exams. Continue reading

The Tea Experience

Tea is my favourite kind of aromatherapy.

I have always felt that that tea is a brilliant onslaught on the senses. I have also said before that tea is an experience, and it is true. Each tea is a unique one. In recent days, one of my favourite tea experiences has been that of the lemon green tea by Lipton. My sister came to visit us after a long while and brought some teas for me, one of which was the lemon green tea. And while I was sipping this light, zingy, refreshing tea, it really hit me how tea is not just any experience, but an experience for all senses. Let me narrate for you just how that is.

True Taste of Tea

Tasting tea is no less complex than tasting wine.

I wish to amass enough variety of teas to one day host a tea tasting party with all of my favourites. And of course, I shall share that experience with you, my dear reader. That day shall come soon, but for now, let us talk about Turkish black tea. As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of my friends gave me a variety of Turkish teas to try out, including this black tea. Continue reading
