It isn’t until one is feeling low or unhealthy, that you realize how comforting tea really is. Last week I was diagnosed with pleurisy. After drinking my regular strong, black tea for several days, I read it was better to drink herbal tea during recovery. Well, shoot! I don’t have much of that in the house! Correction…I don’t have ANY! Then I remembered I have a tin of loose peppermint tea from Upton Tea Imports.
Not only was it comforting, it reinforced my belief that tea can heal the body as well as the soul. I may not be 100% recovered yet, but drinking tea relaxes me and keeps me calm.
