Take a tea timeout

Around December, the focus on socialising can get the better of anyone. Take a re-energising break from all the merriment by simply sitting down with a soothing, delicious tea for two.

The genius of a short, relaxing break

At a time of year when you’re either swept up in social events or preparing for them, it’s easy to forget about yourself. Put some balance in the holiday race by preparing a pause for just you and someone special.

Making tea even has built-in breathing spaces. Use the minutes when the tea is brewing to savour the aroma – of, say, bergamot and oak-flavoured black tea – and the calm it spreads. Select a pair of deep seats, a set of warming throws. Await the right temperature, grab your cups and wrap yourselves in the moment.
