Tea pot clinic
Organic Hojicha (Japanese popcorn green tea)

It’s no surprise to many of you who visit my clinic that I am a big fan of tea. I love it. Often when you visit the clinic, until recent times, you’ve been able to sip away at a nicely brewed cuppa before or after your acupuncture appointment. I see this as a really lovely moment to reflect and just be; to enjoy the moment. You can also do this at home or work.

And although I love most tea, my favourites are good quality loose leaf teas. One reason I love loose leaf teas is that they are more environmentally friendly, with less waste created due to the lack of a tea bag. The other thing I love about loose leaf tea is that you get to see the herbs unfurl as they ‘dance’ in the hot water within your cup.

Each of the teas in my clinic are chosen by me, because I like them enough to drink them myself. I also like to choose high quality, organic, ethical or wild crafted teas where possible.
