Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future – Thích Nhất Hạnh

Mindfully sipping tea and taking the time to appreciate personal “steep time” is an ancient art practiced by Zen philosophers and Buddhists for years.

I love the term ‘Steep Your Soul’ which is inspired from the one and only Oprah.

The ritual of steeping tea provides a time to pause and reflect each day  – from OWN

Oprah and her guests have inspired me since I can remember. In fact I can recall having sick days from school when I was as young as ten or eleven and looking forward to midday when Oprah would be on. So I figured what better to call this segment of my blog after Oprah’s favourite ritual – especially since most of this content is inspired by her or her guests in one form or another.
