As the days get cooler a walk outside can be refreshing and exhilarating but hands can be cold and a ‘lovely cup of tea’ can set everything straight again!
Traditional tea is grown far from Canadian shores but most of us can wander around our gardens or sort through herbs and spices in the kitchen and put some together in a tea pot, pour hot water over, let steep for a few minutes, and enjoy a cup of tea! Try chamomile, mint, lemon balm, on their own or mix them together. Some countries call this “bush tea” and any leaves can be used as long as they are not toxic.
As a family walk to enjoy the brisk air then come home to the comfort of a “lovely cup of tea!”
