Designing Well Being - Mindful Tea Rituals

For me it is important to have beautiful, yet simple and practical design in daily moments and not only save them for special occasions!

Do you have time to sit down and enjoy your herbal tea from a beautiful cup instead of cardboard cup to go, unsure of the quality of the water, when hurrying through your day?

Establishing tea rituals is an easy way to add more mindful moments and everyday beauty in your life, not to mention the added health benefits which you will get more of using different herbs and combinations rather than teabags.

The blend of herbs in these pictures, recommended by my herbalist, consists of chamomile, fennel, peppermint and licorice which is both wonderful tasting and great for healing my leaky gut and preventing bloating and digestive distress.

Light up candles, get a warm blanket and a good book, listen to music or have a conversation with your favorite person or spouse.

Pay attention, be mindful, and feel the radiant warmth of the cup. Notice the rising steam curling into the air and taste the different hints of flavors in each sip.

I am a herbal tea enthusiast and I like to drink different herbal teas everyday but usually I love to drink peppermint tea as it contains antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiseptic properties so some herbal practitioners claim that it could be a cleansing agent on the skin and could be helpful in bacterial infections.
