Time for you and time for me
And time for a cup of tea
nothing quite like a cup of tea to take your mind off stressful things.

ease. Preparing and sipping tea is an act of relaxation itself, but
there are many other ways to use the popular beverage when you want to
unwind and relieve stress. These tea infused ideas are also simple
self-care practices that are an excellent addition to any evening
routine. Next time you want to relax with tea, you can try using them to
feel a sense of tranquility and calm.
Relax, it’s tea time: The benefits of tea beyond being a beverage
Tea-Infused Face Masks
you’re in the mood for an at-home spa day, reach out for a face mask.
Not only is it relaxing and refreshing for your skin, it also encourages
you to be patient waiting for it to set before washing or peeling off.
You can make your own tea masks or explore various tea infused beauty
products. Adding tea improves the experience because of the aroma and
health properties for the skin.
Tea Facial Steams
like warm water opens up delicate tea leaves, warm steam can open up
pores. Add a few nutrient-rich plants in the warm steam, and even better
for your skin to absorb. Feel the soothing steam from the warm tea
invigorate your senses.
it comes to actual tea facial steams, you’re infusing tea and herbs in a
pot of boiling water for a few minutes and then creating a tent with a
towel over your head to steam for 5-8 minutes.
Benefits of Tea Facial Steams
This can slightly vary depending on the tea/herbs used, but here are a few:
-Softens and cleanses the skin by drawing out buildup
-Hydrates the skin
can make your own tea facial steams or you can also find blends that
were curated just for this relaxation method. It is best to use herbal
ones, which come in many different variants.
thinking of an evening unwinding, sometimes a warm, soothing bath can
come to mind. And taking a tea bath is one of the most innovative ways
to destress. It can soothe sore muscles, promote good sleep, and healthy
skin. Similar to the tea facial steam, a tea bath requires you to fill a
bath tub with warm water and in the process, infuse a tea bath blend. A
tea bath blend can usually consist of Epsom salt or baking soda with
dried tea and therapeutic herbs. You can also try tea bath bombs.
meditation can be a practice for many and it is a lot simpler than it
may seem. In fact, there is a chance that many are already practicing
this without even realizing it.
Tea meditation is about a lot more than just taking sips of your tea. It all begins with selecting your tea and tea-ware, and putting the kettle on. The moments in between preparing your tea are small windows of opportunity for relaxation. For example, as you wait for your kettle to sing, sit and practice a short breathing meditation. Place one hand above your chest and the other on your stomach. Listening to the faint whistles of your kettle, inhale and exhale, observing your breathing until it is time to turn the kettle off. With your full attention, then you can proceed to make your cup of tea.
