Tenacious Tea

As many of you know, I am preparing for a fitness competition. With that comes many restrictions to what I can eat and drink.

One thing that I have rediscovered is Tea. Tea has been a part of my life since childhood. For many people, while alcohol was the centre of meals and get-togethers, our family came together over tea. When I was really young, I remember my grandmother giving me small sips of tea, letting it cool by placing a small amount in a Tea saucer for me. Even to this day, a meal is incomplete without Chai Tea. My family thoroughly enjoys the comfort that the warmth brings (mind you there are always great goodies that are accompanied with it)  along with the abundance of conversation, laughter and pure joy.

Tea is inspiring. So many different flavours and combinations to choose from. For example, today, my treat will be the Coconut Mango Oolong tea by STASH. Really looking forward to the tropical flavours - a change from the common English Breakfast, or Pekoe Tea.
 

Today's post will be short, but I wanted to leave you all with a little food for thought….

As a great friend told me "Women are like Tea Bags, you never know how strong she will get until she is in hot water."

Have you had a cup today?

  5. You have to give some tips on tea, because I like it but don't see where's the fuss about it. I guess I didn't taste the right tea yet.

    I would love to be inspired by tea, like you. I'm doing a fitness program and would be easier with tea by my side.

    And that quote is awesome.

    Kisses and good luck!
