My day starts with tea. I turn on the computer and the kettle at the same time. Tea helps me wake up gently, brings my brain back to focus during the day, and chills me out in the afternoon. I have a cupboard dedicated to teas that I’ve collected on my travels. There’s nothing better than wandering into a foreign grocery and looking over their selection of tea — or finding a dedicated tea seller on my adventures.
My favourite tea at the moment is Harney & Sons’ Paris, which is blend of black teas, vanilla, strawberry, and orange. It smells wonderful and tastes better.
