The Tea Calendar
If your New Year’s Resolution is to hit the gym, good for you. If it’s to increase your 401(k) percentage – like me, buckle down. If it’s to Zen out, meditate and drink more tea, this is the solution for you.
Us tea drinkers love the ceremony involved with the act, and the ceremony below is as charming as can be. The German tea producer Hälssen & Lyon created a daily tea calendar made of strips of tea leaves. Boil your water, pull the date off the handsome calendar, drop it into your teacup, and the date will dissolve into a brewed cup. The creation of these dates was extremely labor-intensive, as each date had to be made of leaves robust enough to create flavor, but thin enough to dissolve like a proper cup of tea. And then of course, they had to be stamped with the date.
I badly want this for Christmas, but alas, it was created exclusively for the tea company’s partners and top clients, so no such luck.
