If somebody asks:
"What is the nature of tea?"
The sound of the wind
in the pines
in a painting."
To say that we love tea here at ITO EN would be a bit of an understatement. More than half of our workspaces are covered by teapots and infusers, canisters, bags, mugs, and trivets. Stashes of loose leaf tea and tea bags clutter our desk drawers, and bottles of TEAS' TEA and Matcha Shots are nestled between monitors and phones. Here in the loose
leaf department, it feels like a birthday whenever a box of samples comes in. It's like our own little club; a tea party every day of the week.
The best part about tea, however, is it's
ability to not only be enjoyed in solitutde, but joyfully with others. Sharing a cuppa and your love for it creates a wonderful sense of community. You start by discussing what you're drinking, which reminds you of the time you did something or other, and soon you're sharing stories of life, travel, love, and wonder.
So this blog is for you: our community.
Here, you'll find posts about any number of tea-related things, from brewing tips and our favorite brews, to tea-infused recipes and how to choose the right cup for you. Something you'd like to see? Have an idea or opinion? Let us know! Our inboxes are open for you, 24/7. We're looking forward to hearing from you all!
