Today I had the best fun holding a “High Tea” at my house for my friends and I. We had a wonderful time, and it made me realise…
High Tea is really just tea with extra mindfulness.
It’s all about stopping to take notice of – and enjoy – the little things that we normally overlook.
White clean tablecloths.
and my favourite…
Small morsels of yummy cakes and sandwiches.
I love that – the extra small portions of food. Instead of the frequent approach to food in our society – gluttony. And more is better.
High Tea is all about eating and drinking tea in moderation. With mindfulness.
Appreciating the tastes and textures and colours.
The feel of the fine china.
And of being mindful of the entire experience itself, and dedicating time to enjoy it and make it special.
There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
