Making tea with a teapot gives you not only enjoying its falvour and aroma, but also 至福の時間 (shifuku no jikan), quality time. It does take longer when you make loose tea with a teapot. However the moment when you have the first sip from your favourite cup is totally worth it.
In Japan, the popularity of bottled green tea hasn’t stopped since 1996 when it was introduced.
It is incredible to see so many varieties of tea lining in almost every shop in Japan.
And this fact pushes people away from making tea with a teapot. Sadly and shamefully, many of young generations don’t know how to make it from tea leaf or even never seen it within families. Bottled green tea is so handy and tastes good so that there is no necessity to make one. Besides they don’t realise that bottled green tea isn’t tea, it is only ‘green tea drink’ which can barely expect green tea health benefits.
Having quality time, especially in the morning promises you have a better day. Rushing never takes you to a good place.
Let’s have 至福の時間 (shifuku no jikan) for your beautiful life!
