Philosophy of tea is not mere aestheticism in the ordinary acceptance of the term, for it expresses conjointly with ethics and religion our whole point of view about man and nature.

Presenting Tea as a Philosophy for living life is not new, and yet it is not old either. It represents so much of what spans the globe. Slow down and smell the rose [Tea], life is too precious to ignore what it offers you. Enjoy the moment, says Tea, wait for me to bloom and appreciate what it is I am. Wait for me to steep in the perfect geometry of my pot, delight in the fragrance that tempts the palate, and appreciate friends who sit with you, or even the silence of your space, reflecting your thoughts in the pool of the Tea cup. Take a sip and watch that loose leaf settle to the bottom of the cup, and as it hits the bottom, make a wish.

It is hygiene, for it enforces cleanliness; it is economics, for it shows comfort in simplicity rather than in the complex and costly; it is moral geometry, inasmuch as it defines our sense of proportion to the universe.

Tea cleans our bodies, restores our sense of well being and balance, lifting us up in mental clarity and physical joy. It delivers its promise of health in a cup of leaves and hot water, it illustrates versatility with simplicity. Tea bridged the cultural gap of East and West, giving us a common interest in expanding our worlds, to one world, without robbing either of their distinct heritage and pride. Tea changed to accommodate our different worlds, becoming as distinct for us, as us. Uniquely reflecting each culture. Green Tea with its variations, green hue and delicate, subtle flavour, partners the extensive culinary depth of the East. Whereas red Tea, fermented on its trip to the European continent, discovered its place amongst the dark meat of a roast, and the complimenting colours of red wine and amber ales and beers. But regardless of colour, it is still the same herb, Tea. It treats us equally yet respects our individual and collective needs, it places a perspective to be viewed and heeded.

Those who cannot feel the littleness of great things in themselves are apt to overlook the greatness of little things in others.

Be aware of what is around you, what the world truly is. Tea is not a bag, nor is it instant. Tea is an herb, it grows, and is nurtured, it rewards us with its infusion of water and leaves. Tea is a metaphor for the earth it grows from, when we care, we are rewarded. The harmony of Body and Soul, to balance ourselves with thought and deed, repel the desire for instant satisfaction and soak in the big picture, how it all connects, what makes everything special, unique. True gratification.

The presentation of tea for sale is not only timely, but for SerendipiTea it is also a reflection of philosophy. As a company we advocate a lifestyle, we reflect that in our offerings and our philosophy. We encourage people to enter our home. Tea encompasses this view, it is inviting, drawing both historical respect, and the vivacity of new discovery. It is the embodiment of Zen, being both old and new, complimenting both East and West, reviving Body and Soul. It is what is served to friends in your home, the cup of warmth that demonstrates the need for quality time to truly know and enjoy each other.

Tea in its many forms, will always amaze when the leaves unfurl and show their true colour, and lead by example when they show love of earth by recycling mulch to nurture the earth to produce beauty, as thanks for its own birth. Nurture and care. In varying forms and functions, Teas alleviate skin irritations such as insect bites, help sterilize wounds and alleviate the stress of ageing of skin. It is a natural digestive and stimulant, arousing mind and body, not just working nerves, so as allowing you to function competently, with clarity of thought and action.

In its simplicity, it educates. Drink it any way that pleases you, but first drink it pure and unadulterated. Taste the earth from which it came, for each region has its own distinct taste, aroma and leaf. SerendipiTea will proudly bear the names of the original estates, and country, to encourage people to travel the world with us not only through the visual feast of our merchandise, but also through the palatable and aromatic adventure of tea.
