Embrace a Slow Morning: How to create a Morning Tea Ritual

In a world where life seems to be going at a faster and faster pace, finding moments to slow down and reconnect with ourselves can feel like a challenge. Our morning sets the tone for the entire day, and creating a peaceful, intentional routine can transform our whole day. 

I used to be a coffee drinker for years, and it was a part of my morning routine every day. I started to feel jittery, anxious and my sleep started to be affected. I slowly started to back away from coffee and switched to tea. Once I made the switch fully, I knew there was no going back. Being immersed in the tea world was something new for me, and I loved it!! And it is one of the biggest reasons why I decided to collaborate with a Naturopathic Doctor to formulate our own Organic Loose-Leaf Tea. 




Here are my 5 tips to find, create & enjoy your morning tea ritual to help you stay grounded and relaxed.


 1. Choose Your Tea Wisely & Know Where It's Sourced

The type of tea you select can influence your morning experience. Green tea, known for its gentle caffeine content and high levels of antioxidants, offers a calm yet alert state, perfect for starting the day with clarity. Herbal teas, like chamomile or lavender, are caffeine-free and excellent for those who prefer a serene, calming effect. Black tea, with its robust flavor and higher caffeine content, can provide a more substantial wake-up call without the jitters associated with coffee. Explore different varieties to find what resonates with your body's needs and your personal preferences. The tea that I have been using daily is our Skin Glow Tea which is caffeine free and helps me feel calm.

It is also very important to know where your tea is coming from and ensure that it is sourced sustainably and also that the herbs being used are of high quality and organic. To ensure you are truly receiving the benefits of all the natural herbs. Our Skin Glow Tea is only made with all organic & sustainable herbs. 

 2. Create a Ritual

Transforming tea-making into a ritual can elevate it from a simple task to a meaningful practice. Start by setting aside a dedicated time each morning, even if it’s just 10-15 minutes. Use a favorite teapot and cup that brings you joy. As you boil the water, take a moment to breathe deeply and center yourself. Pay attention to the process of brewing the tea—watch the steam rise, inhale the fragrant aroma, and observe the color change as the tea steeps. This mindful attention helps ground you in the present moment.

 3. Mindful Sipping

Once your tea is ready, take a few moments to simply enjoy it. Sit in a comfortable spot, preferably by a window or outside under your favorite tree. Hold the cup with both hands, feeling its warmth. As you take each sip, savor the flavors and notice how the tea feels as it travels down your throat. Allow this simple act of drinking tea to be a form of meditation, where you are fully present and engaged with the experience.

 4. Pair Tea with Reflection

Consider pairing your tea-time with a reflective practice. Journaling can be an excellent companion to your morning tea. As you sip, jot down your thoughts, intentions for the day, or things you are grateful for.  Or if journaling just isn't your thing, you can pair your tea with light reading, gentle stretching, or simply gazing out the window, letting your mind wander.

 5. Health Benefits of Morning Tea

Beyond the mental and emotional benefits, tea also offers numerous health advantages. Rich in antioxidants, tea can help boost your immune system, reduce inflammation, and improve overall well-being. Our Skin Glow tea was formulated to help with balancing excess oil, clearer complexion, PMS symptoms, and balancing hormones and overall glowing skin.

Incorporating tea into your morning routine is a simple yet profound way to slow down and start your day with intention and tranquility. By choosing the right tea, creating a mindful ritual, and pairing it with reflective practices, you can transform your mornings into a peaceful, grounding experience. Embrace the slow beauty of tea and let it be a daily reminder to savor each moment, cultivating a sense of calm and balance that carries through your day.
