I’m a dedicated coffee drinker, but I do appreciate a good cup of tea when I’m not feeling well. If I’m sick, it goes down easier than strong coffee. If I’m mentally overwhelmed or depressed, the aroma of tea calms me down. Earl Grey smells nice. So do all the mint tea varieties. Green tea is usually served in Japan. Where I live is famous for green tea. One of the best seasons is when the tea is harvested and all the shops have fresh tea leaves for sale. The whole street smells like a fresh, hot cup of tea and is it lovely. Since the pandemic, many coffee houses and tea shops weren’t able to give out free samples, but I hope it comes back soon.
I also love the tea houses. Most of the famous gardens and museums have a tea house. Sometimes, when my husband and I have a day off (and my daughter’s at school) we go to a local temple and have green tea with traditional sweets. It’s really relaxing.

It must be incredible to walk down the street when all of the tea houses are selling fresh tea leaves. That sounds lovely.
It’s a true joy!
“The whole street smells like a fresh, hot cup of tea and is it lovely.” That sounds amazing. I would love that so much.
I wish I could collect aromas and post it on a blog.
Tea is great when you’re not feeling well physically, and it’s soothing mentally. I love your post!
