I love tea. I like to drink it, talk about it, make it, smell it and even taste it.
More importantly than brewing and drinking tea, however, is the moment. Just breathe and relax. Do not be concerned with the exact directions or the how-to. This is your time. Try to enjoy the process. Over time you will know your preferences and will brew according to how you like your tea.
I like loose leaf tea so I can control how much tea to use. I like the idea of the tea and herbs floating around to their full potential for my enjoyment and health. So, when my tea is brewed, I sit and enjoy my time, take a deep breath and savor that this is just for me.
