The weather is cooling, and fireplaces are set to roar. Just as lofty throw blankets and twinkle lights are part of the fall and winter zeitgeist, so too is a warm cup of tea. A cup of tea enjoyed hearthside, or while reading a New York Times bestselling novel, or while communing with friends, is a calming force. Proper preparation—boiling the water, steeping just long enough, and pouring into either an earthenware mug or porcelain teacup—makes for a soothing ritual. There is no question that tea is more than merely a beverage. It’s an experience—a luxurious art form that encourages mindfulness and self-care.
