“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life”
Thich Nhat Hanh
Through meditation, you can calm the mind and develop your intuition to recognise what is real and important to you.
By transforming your tea time to a meditation practice, you’ll no longer struggle to find time to meditate.
By learning how to focus on the here and now your mind has the opportunity to rest and you remember you can choose what you think about.
By creating a habit of being mindful with your cup of tea, this behaviour and awareness creeps into other areas of your life.
You will learn about the different types of tea, how different cultures experience tea, and how you can create your own personal tea ritual.
As you learn how to live more in the moment, you begin to see the beauty & enjoy the seemingly unremarkable things in life.

The preparation and drinking of tea is a meditation, here it is beautifully shown.
7 Days of tea is an online program which takes you on a 7 day journey, as you receive your daily cup of meditation through information about tea, a beautiful quote, and of course a guided audio meditation to have with your tea. It is recommended to do each meditation with a different type of tea so you indulge your senses in the smells, flavours, and colours while your soul gets soothed by your meditative presence.
Mindfulness meditation is about connecting with our senses to bring us into the present moment, allowing us to experience ourselves, and the world, beyond words and concepts.
Anything can be an object of meditation; the feel of the breath as it comes and goes, our thoughts and emotions, our body, our sense of taste and smell and our sense of hearing.
The aim of meditation is to develop the awareness that we are not our thoughts and we are not our emotions; that these experiences are fleeting, impermanent and they needn’t define us.
Hearing meditation is a form of meditation that helps us experience the impermanent nature of phenomenon, as well as our attachment to it.
As we listen and observe what happens internally, we notice that we are attracted to some sounds, and repelled by others. We can be curious about these: where did they come from? How does it feel like in the body to experience cravings or aversions? What are the thoughts that come up?
In this way we become aware of the automatic judgements or evaluations, we make about everything, sometimes not even being aware of why we hold these judgements. Why do we resist our sometimes uncomfortable feelings, or are they uncomfortable because we resist them …
You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy the tea.
Only in the awareness of the present, can your hands feel the pleasant warmth of the cup.
Only in the present, can you savor the aroma, taste the sweetness, appreciate the delicacy.
If you are ruminating about the past, or worrying about the future, you will completely miss the experience of enjoying the cup of tea.
You will look down at the cup, and the tea will be gone.
Life is like that.
If you are not fully present, you will look around and it will be gone.
You will have missed the feel, the aroma, the delicacy and beauty of life.
It will seem to be speeding past you. The past is finished.
Learn from it and let it go.
The future is not even here yet. Plan for it, but do not waste your time worrying about it.
Worrying is worthless.
When you stop ruminating about what has already happened, when you stop worrying about what might never happen, then you will be in the present moment.
Then you will begin to experience joy in life.
