Especially now. Especially in these times, which for many people are characterised by worries, fears and frustration, it is particularly important to be mindful. Being mindful means to be consciously in the here and now - not only physically, but also mentally. Our body is considered the temple of the soul, which should be cherished and cared for. That is why it is important to recover well and consciously create opportunities to escape one's stressful daily routine.
Especially in winter time, when the days are short and grey, sometimes the light of the sun is missing and we long for warmth. A millennia-old ritual can work wonders: the enjoyment of a cup of tea with all senses. Even the preparation, consciously carried out step by step, becomes part of a ceremony of mindfulness. Enjoying a hot brew provides a well-deserved time-out in our hectic world and can become a daily mindfulness ritual that gives our body and soul inner peace and clarity.
We developed the new Thich Nhat Hanh Mindfulness Collection in collaboration with the world-renowned spiritual leader Thich Nhat Hanh and ABC Carpet & Home of New York. It is based on the six levels of mindfulness: clarity, grounding, vitality, presence, contemplation and awareness. The hand-processed organic whole leaf teas are harvested from the most fertile topsoil mother nature provides. They come from the most diverse regions of Asia, from the mighty mountain peaks of Thailand, to the rainforests of India. The taste notes range from apple-sweet chamomile and fruity hops, to notes of toasted cinnamon, darkest chocolate and honey-sweet safflower, to lemongrass, ginger and peppermint that purify, strengthen and fuel your inner fire. The collection consists of three blends and three pure teas. Oolong, herbal, green and black teas form the basis:
The CLARITY - THAI MILKY OOLONG TEA impresses with pleasantly mild flavors from the spectrum of sweet vegetal, orchid and creamy.
The GROUNDED - CALMING HERBAL TEA combines the freshness of apple blossom, grapefruit and rose with the mild sweetness of honey.
The VITALITY - AYURVEDIC HERBAL TEA invigorates with notes of citrus and fresh mint and ignites your inner fire with ginger.
The PRESENCE - CHINESE GREEN TEA - brings us into the here and now with notes of nuttiness and hints of sweet sweet peas.
The CONTEMPLATION - JAPANESE ROASTED GREEN TEA - promotes our inner contemplation with toasty, smoky-sweet notes of plum and cinnamon.
The AWARENESS - DARJEELING BLACK TEA - strengthens our with hints of almond and camphor.
Depending on your mood and the time of day, choose one of the six carefully selected teas of the Thich Nhat Hanh Mindfulness Collection and the corresponding infusion ceremony. Thus, even the preparation already becomes part of a mindfulness ritual. A suitable scented candle or incense sticks together with the Thich Nhat Hanh Mindfulness Playlist on Spotify or Apple Music creates the perfect atmosphere for a little time out from everyday life. Enjoy with all your senses, as taught by the esteemed teacher and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.
By the way: with every mindful tea enjoyment you support the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation, to which we donate 5% of our profits.
