Yet there is some real truth in that little ditty. Taking a few minutes in the middle of the day to “break for tea” is a great way to connect, relax and interact.
I push water as our drink of choice, but every once in a while I’ll bring out my specialty teas, select a favorite, pull out the mugs or teacups, grab a few treats and we’ll have a little tea party.
The kids love it if I surprise them with one after school, or pull out all the stops on a rainy or snowy Sunday afternoon. Since I often pick up interesting teas on sale or even on vacation (a great inexpensive souvenir), I have a nice variety and this little treat costs very little to pull off.
Tea also has some health benefits. Tea contains amino acids, antioxidants, and minerals. Much better for you than a soda!
Sitting down with your family (or even just by yourself) over a hot cup of tea is a great way to relax, do something good for yourself and enjoy a special moment in the day without spending a fortune in time or money.
