Flowers for tea....


I almost forgot about tea today...
so much has happened

it's not just brewing and drinking a cup of tea but
it's about ...

the state of the mind..
it involves the senses....

and ultimately

a renewed self...

and so
amidst a chaotic day at work...

I freed myself
to brew this flower tea...



light and refreshing
and certainly a beautiful sight to see..
the petals "blooming' right before me seconds after hot water is poured into the glass.

and so while I was coping with some "turmoil"
within me...

this act of setting aside time for tea is truly an uplifting experience..


Thank you so much Kimmie and the "gang" of tea bloggers...
I look forward to reading your stories 
each time...

simply me

Not only do you make the most beautiful collages, you also make the most beautiful tea. That photo is stunning. I am so intrigued by the flowers. I hope this turmoil is resolved soon. Have a lovely Tea Tuesday.

that is what it's all about!
I just love your flower tea - it's like having an instant garden bloom in the midst of the asphalt jungle we live in these days!

Happy T today!!! Kimmie

Glad you could take a tea break at work... I drink it all day long... Black in the morning and decaf black, Rooibos, green, white or herbal in the afternoons... Your flower tea is beautiful...

What a beautiful photo - I too have made the flower tea. It really slow you down and makes you ponder. A wondrous ceremony- tea.
