It's a strange time at the moment, isn't it? Life has changed and it can be easy to forget to what day it is! Whether you're self-isolating, juggling home-schooling with working or a key worker on the front line, things are very different to where we all expected them to be.
There are some advantages to the world slowing down. We're not going to recommend you learn a language or write a novel. For a lot of people, just working out what's going on is enough and whatever helps you through it is enough. A lot of people are baking (have you tried our super easy tea bread
?) and gathering their mates together on video chat
. A routine can be helpful- and this is where loose leaf tea and good coffee come in.
Making a good cup of coffee or a pot of loose leaf tea is a chance to carve out some space, create some routine in a day that can otherwise feel aimless or, in some cases, like you're frantically juggling everything at once. The simple act of boiling a kettle can feel like a pause. The simple pleasure of a favourite tea or the smell of freshly brewed coffee can be a great mood-lifter!
We can't change the world right now, but we can help you make a really, really good cup of tea or coffee.
