Have you appeased the DeiTeas, with a Tea Ceremony?
Like with relationships and gardens, both thrive more through tender loving attention – Tea is the same!
By engaging consciously and mindfully with what we’re doing, slowing down to be present with the task at hand, we have to let go of all the chaos and distractions in our minds and emotions. In so doing, not only will we grow better gardens, create better relationships and brew better tea, we will also find a release of stress in the process – even before we take our first relaxing sip!
Instead of a life of fast food and fast living, we promote and encourage a slower more balanced pace – in all of life. We therefore support the Slow Movement and invite all of our customers to rediscover the joy of lovingly and consciously preparing their meals and drinks, from good-quality wholefood ingredients. Through a conscious, slower and joyful engagement, we bring back the ritual of making tea – The Tea Ceremony – and so reclaim a little real magic and sacredness back into our lives.
It is for all these reasons that we have not made GrunTea available in teabags. The added advantages to this are: reducing our eco-footprint by avoiding single-use plastic or paper teabags; and through brewing our tea with the addition of fresh ginger, we capture the Grunt in the flavour!
So…. when brewing your tea, do so mindfully – with Love in your heart, and Gratitude on your lips. The spirits of nature who embody the many healing properties found in our 100% organic ingredients, will greatly appreciate you. So will your body!
On the Slow Movement:
“It is a cultural revolution against the notion that faster is always better. The Slow philosophy is not about doing everything at a snail’s pace. It’s about seeking to do everything at the right speed. Savoring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Doing everything as well as possible, instead of as fast as possible. It’s about quality over quantity in everything from work to food to parenting.” ~ In Praise of Slowness by Carl Honoré
So I need to add fresh Ginger? Why?
We love all things fresh and tasty here at the Emporium, and when using dried ginger, there was just no grunt! Alchemy of flavour is what we are all about, and the fresh ginger adds a zing like nothing else while complementing the tea and spices so well that it’s just …. awesome … even if we do say so ourselves.
Give it a go and you will soon know exactly what we are talking about!
Storage: We recommend removing the tea from its bag and storing it in a glass jar or tea tin, in a cool dry place, out of direct light. This will ensure a longer shelf life, better flavour, and stronger health benefits.
Warning: Turmeric may stain – so please handle with care!
