The British Isles
"Before steel, before oil, before cars or guns or Coca-Cola, there was tea - one of civilization’s first truly global commodities, as well as one of its most enduring and beloved."
Whether you're a tea drinker or not, we all love to indulge in a cuppa from time to time, don't we? It's more than just drinking a hot beverage, it's the whole comforting ritual of sitting down, slowing down and taking in the aroma. Each time I visit my mom in England, she always makes a point of going for a proper tea and though I'm not a huge tea drinker myself, I see the beauty, the elegance and the tradition in it.
Recently, CNT created a stunning series of tea rituals around the world (with amazing descriptions) showcasing its history. Just looking at those images above make me want to start drinking tea more often...
