Before coffee there was tea. I’m not sure if that’s exactly true but it sounds about right. Check out this interesting website, coffeeshop of horrors, that tackles the battle between the two. You don’t have to be mad as a hatter to like tea.
I love tea because there are so so many different types of tea out there (they say that herbal tea isn’t real “tea” because it is actually an infusion of different plant types, but for my purposes I am including it all). Picking a tea at the end of the day is exciting. Tea can boost endurance. Green Tea has been known to burn fat. Most tea serves as a natural antioxidant and a great defense against cancer and heart disease.
As Mrs. Potts says, tea will warm you up in no time.
I love having tea parties and making food to go with it. There are so many different fun snacks that can be made in a “miniature” way. Pretend tea parties also teach children table manners. Tea can be served all day, every day.
It can be served outside, inside, or even on the ceiling.

Looking for Mary Poppins at Disney? If you want to ask her about her favorite type of tea, look for her strolling around the bridge just off Main Street in the Magic Kingdom or at the 1900 Park Fare Character breakfast(click here to visit Disney’s description). Maybe you can convince her to take you on a journey of your own. Ask her why they ended the Mary Poppins Practically Perfect Tea Party. It sounded fantastic.
Wherever you are, a cup of tea is always good for the soul. Not only is it a great hostess offering, it can also be used as a relaxation technique after a long day. By drinking tea slowly, you nourish your body and quiet your mind.
