MEDITATION IN A BOX
The evidence that mindfulness practice improves mental and physical health is overwhelming. However, mindfulness can be a difficult and frustrating practice in the beginning due to the mind's natural inclination to wander. Luckily, tea meditation, with its roots in ancient Zen practice, is an easy path to mindfulness for beginners. This is because tea meditation focuses the mind on a sensory experience rather than a mere mental experience, and when a good quality tea inundates all five sensory organs, it holds one's attention for longer. On top of this, the caffeine and L-theanine combination in tea makes your brain alert and relaxed at the same time - a perfect state to be in for meditation.
