Today at the cafe I have a soothing technique to free your mind from the pressures of college life.

It’s called tea therapy. 

All you need is a quiet room and a cup of this warm Mandarin Orange Ginger Tea. 

Tea Therapy

Start by brewing a cup of this Mandarin Orange Ginger Tea.

To make, simply spoon two teaspoons of sugar in your favorite cup along with a splash of orange juice and a spoonful of grated fresh ginger.

Side note —> Fresh ginger is inexpensive and lasts a long time when stored in the freezer. When you need some, scrap away the skin with the edge of a spoon to expose the flesh. Grate (while still frozen) using the small holes of a box grater to make ginger snow!

Back to the tea therapy —> Fill your cup with hot water from the kettle. Loosely surround the cup with your hands and let the heat from it warm your fingers.

Finally, take a sip of this sweet aromatic tea. Close your eyes and let your body relax from head to toe. Visualize the vitamin C from the mandarin oranges flow through you as your body baths in the healing powers of ginger.

Reward yourself with another sip and replace anxious thoughts of upcoming exams, papers and assignments with visions of travelling to a far off destination.

Imagine being there…linking powder turns in freshly fallen snow and enjoying pints of beer with friends at the base of the mountain.

Whoa! Looks likes I got caught up in the moment and took you on a journey to my happy place (must have been the tea writing).

Your turn to escape. Sit back, relax and sip away.
