Why Tea?

Out of everything in the world that I could possible blog about, why did I choose tea?? I could drone on and on about all the reasons why I love tea, but for the simplest answer, tea is my escape in a cup.

I’ve always grown up loving tea, because that was the drink of choice for my mom. I’m not saying that tea was forced upon me at a young age and I eventually grew to like it, however it did become a method my mom used and implemented into my life during certain times. The times that I would normally drink tea would be: when I was upset/sad/angry/stressed (see the pattern of negative emotions 😉 ), when I wasn’t feeling well (especially stomach bugs–peppermint tea was a life saver), before bed or a nap, after dinner or lunch, hot tea on a cold winter’s night, iced tea on a hot summer’s day (no soda for Katherine!), and especially on the boat.

After a while, I would just start a routine of drinking tea during these times whether or not my mother was around to brew the tea for me. It became so much of a routine that even now when I’m in college and living alone, I still find myself craving tea, or just turning the kettle on when I’m stressed out.

Something like tea, that I enjoy drinking and has a wonderful resonating meaning to me seems like the perfect topic to write about. Eh mates?

  1. Katerine, I love tea too! Specifically green tea. I believe it to be much more healthier than coffee, expresso or soda. Plus, if you drink green it won’t turn your teeth brown! I recommend zen tea from starbucks. It my favorite! 🙂

  2. Isn’t tea wonderful Lauren? It is a lot healthier too! If you keep reading my blog in one of my planned posts I’m going to go over all the health benefits to drinking tea! Oh, and zen is one of my favs out of bagged teas! Thanks for reading my blog!
