I’m a lucky lady who struggles to get out of bed each morning so my better half always brings me a cuppa. I gave up caffeine several years ago as I found it was really disagreeing with me, so now I drink herbal teas or the odd decaf coffee.
Week day mornings my husband gets up first and uses the bathroom and then when he’s done I get up and he brings me a lemon and ginger tea. At the weekends I like something different and I have two beautiful mugs that have strainers in so I can have a loose leaf tea. Today it’s a detox blend. This one always reminds me of a friend I haven’t seen for ages. She got me into these mugs and this tea company and I long to make her an early morning tea again soon.
Making hot drinks for other people is a simple sign of appreciation or even love and respect. I like to please and often find myself making others hot drinks when away or visiting others. Maybe we could all do with a tea slave somedays.
