I Care: Comfortea

Updated on February 21, 2016

Tea Pixie writes her way around the world drinking tea, eating scones, & capturing inspirational images. I. Love. Travel. I. Love. Life.

Why Waste Time on Tea?

Isn't it always time for tea? In my world, tea time is you and me time, and how could that ever be overdone?

I live for the connections that tea drinking brings, so I will often reference tea. Comfortea is what I'm serving and you'll feel the joy of my adventures in my writing. Take a peek here to learn more about who I am and why you'll want to be one of my loyal readers.

My published articles have garnered serious loyalty. Need a break in your day? Get your cup of tea, sit down, and envelope yourself in my ramblings - travel with me wherever I go and whenever I find that magical cup of tea.

Remember, a hug from the inside is only a cup away.

Esperienza

Where my words come from

I grew up on hot chocolate. In fact, I didn't start drinking tea until my early 30's and coffee never caught on for me. My tea-drinking days started out of necessity - I got a job marketing tea for a struggling tearoom. After finishing my bachelors in communication, I worked in educational television where I met an amazing group of people. It was one of those people who took the chance to hire me to transform the profile of their start-up business, and their tea, in our city. This tearoom runs happily along now, without my involvement, but it was 4 years of very intense merchandising and communication planning that made this room part of the fabric of this city.

I have been publishing since before the turn of the century. I really enjoy creating art and fine art photography, alongside designing functional art books. I am also a facilitator of visioning and planning and have worked with small businesses, developing communities, and individuals who are ready to forge ahead to actualize their life-long dreams. A pot of tea seems to accompany me as I work. I can't think of a meeting where I didn't share a pot of tea.

But pots of tea seem to follow me everywhere - or is it that I follow them? From the coast of Kenya to Oxford Street in London, to the beaches of Oregon and the streets of Brussels, I have slurped pots of tea and devoured sizzling crumpets, devon cream and jam slathered scones, Belgian waffles, and crispy, buttery toast. And, no matter where I am or what time of year, I seek out that tea if it hasn't already found me. Speaking of which, it's time for tea - I have to go now. Check back in as I regale you with my wild and woolly adventures of tea, travel, and life.

What is tea without a teapot? Or without a cup? A great big mess.

      @BinendraWije LM: I think of tea as very safe addiction. In fact, in North America many people who have struggled with alcohol addictions turn to tea. I expect your tea is amazing because it is local. Thank you for stopping by, BiendraWije.

      @anonymous: Ahhhhh! Red Rose Tea. Are you old enough to remember the magical little ceramic animals that were in the Red Rose Tea boxes? Ohhhh - I sure wish they would bring those back, but I guess the tea would then be too expensive. I can remember dying for Mom to open the box of tea so I could see which figurine was waiting inside. Magic. Thank you so much for sparking that memory for me, and for stopping by to chat.

      @ItayaLightbourne: Well, you know, I have this little equation that I like to equate to Einstein's E=mc squared and it's "T=P". All that tea drinking in one day can make for many visits to the loo! But it doesn't seem to stop me. Thank you stopping by to chat.

      @cmadden: For me, different teas actually make me feel different, so I will often choose a tea depending on how I feel that day. Some mornings I just feel tired and so I reach for a cuppa black tea, hoping that it will perk me up - and it often does! Thank you for stopping by for a visit and a chat.

      Couldn't answer your poll because I drink several teas daily, so there was no place for my vote. Gotta have my tea!

      I sometimes drink herbal teas, but most often reach for black teas or coffee.
