To me tea is art. It’s slowing down, warming up. It’s taking the time I need to stretch out and recharge. Anyone who knows me will confirm I don’t go one single day without at least one cup of tea!
It’s a habit I’ve learnt to grow years ago, but it’s not actually been always there. I don’t even know how I got into it in a very first place, but somehow I’ve found my way through it and learned to love that moment of peace that comes with pouring, filtering and sipping.
But, if I never really found out, I’d wish someone introduced me to it at some point in my life! I’d wish someone told me how to take those 15 minutes to switch off in the middle of an afternoon, that someone, an expert maybe, guided me through the endless amount of tea types and blends, and explained me how tea can be good to your mind and health too.
If you have followed my gift guides this year, you might have spotted here and there my most recent philosophy with gifts: introducing someone to a new experience. Because yes, I’ve been thinking a lot about what ‘giving’ can mean, and I want it to mean something bigger than consumism to me: I believe there’s no better gift you can give to someone, than introducing him to something new that will stick with him in the years to come.
So you’ll now be able to tell why I couldn’t hesitate when JING Tea asked me to help with sharing their “Giving the gift of a new habit“ Christmas campaign! And if you’re a tea lover (and I know most of you will be with me on this one), I bet you’ll love the idea too!
They not only have the best aestethically beautiful tea kits (I’m so in love with my new Tea Infuser Set*, coming with their popular Tea Infuser mug and the addition of their glass Tea Timer, for a proper moment of zen), but they also have the most thoughtful gift guide on their website at the moment, covering all the options really: you’ll be able to surprise both the tea beginner and the connoisseur, selecting the perfect tea gift by taste and maybe also pairing it with one of their beautiful kits.
I don’t know about you, but I now feel like I have my Christmas list sorted. I can’t wait to introduce all my friends and family to my favourite tea this year (if you are wondering, the one in the pictures is their Jasmine Pearls Tea, which is by far one of my favourite flavour combinations, but also so pretty to watch while the pearls unravel and transform into tea leafs!).
Are you going to give the gift of a habit this year? I’d love to hear more! x
