Time for some travelling with our senses and imaginations!

Choose a tea for your partner which reminds you of a certain place. It could be the place the tea was made, the place you bought it, or just a place the flavour brings to mind.

Seal up the teabag in its own envelope, with a note inside describing the place in detail. When your partner has a quiet moment, they will open the envelope, brew the tea, and read your description. As your partner sips their tea, they will close their eyes and picture the place you've described, while tasting the flavours of the place.

Please be as vivid and detailed in your descriptions as you can, so that your partner can truly go for a mini vacation when they open the envelope.

If it helps you to describe the location, you may consider decorating the envie or including a photo, magazine clipping, artifact, etc. which further reflects the spirit of the place you are visitng.

When you open your envelopes, I recommend you be in a quiet place where you can really focus on the description, close your eyes, and savour the tea.

The teas are sender's choice, but must be factory-sealed wrappers UNLESS your partner agrees otherwise. If your partner is severly allergic to something, do try to avoid that ingredient, please. You do NOT have to have actually been to the place you are describing. Use your imagination!

Open to everyone in the Tea Is Love Group. I will angel if necessary. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Happy Travels!

I am ok with bagged or loose teas. No allergies.

Super fun! :) Any tea is fine with me too - bagged or loose....

I am a loose tea drinker, but if you don't have any, a nice bag tea will do fine. Do not buy loose tea for me if you don't drink it yourself.

Loose tea or bagged; either is fine with me.

Nekozet 04/13/2012 #

Only 1 teabag is required.
