Can you think of some of the best bonding moments you had with your father? Tea time would definitely be one of it! Even little girls love to host pretend tea parties for their dad. Tea times bring out the soft, philosophical and warm side of fathers around the globe. Surprise your dad with a special tea collection to have many more moments of one-on-one connection.
Calming blends for the hard workers
As a way to celebrate your father’s hard work, stay indoors and indulge in some relaxing blends along with him. Let the teas do their work while your dad shares his life stories and possibly some advice you are not so fond of! Some flavourful blends which ease one’s mind and spirit are fennel, cinnamon, lemon myrtle and cardamom.
Digital Detox for Dad
Our lives have been overtaken by technology. As much as the younger generation has fallen prey to it, the older generation has not been spared too! Well, the WhatsApp forwards and good morning messages are proof to the never-ending social media frenzy or should we call it the scroller-coaster ride. Taking a screen time break by brewing your own cup of tea could be the perfect solution to it after all. Help your dad start his mornings with a daily tea ritual which does not involve the phone or television. He will thank you later. Some morning blends to start your day are Earl Grey, Masala Chai, Lemon tea. Don’t forget to remind him to hold the cup, feel it’s warmth and smell the aroma!
For the Tea Connoisseur Dad
Dads know their tea, especially the ones who religiously have it every day. The ones who are not fond of this connoisseur-like attitude are of course, the moms who brew it with utmost care. So, if you want to get into the good books of the man of the family, gift him exotic teas! Rooibos Tea, White Tea, Pu-erh Tea are some good options. Go ahead, lavish him with some tea love.
Anxiety Relieving Tea
Caring for the family round the clock while working full time can take its toll on fathers. No one is immune to anxiety even when one tries their best to avoid it. Yet it can be managed with a good lifestyle and healthy food habits. Herbal teas are great for reducing anxiety. Chamomile tea can improve the production of serotonin and melatonin, calming the body and mind. Peppermint tea can calm the nerves and improve digestion. The antioxidants in Green tea can effectively boost one’s physical and mental health. Make sure your dad has a daily cup of herbal tea so he can feel his best all through the day!
These are the little but loving ways through which we can take care of the members of our family while spending quality time with them. Never under estimate the power of a single cup of tea!
