Feel. Bake. Better.
On an unusually quiet day when it’s especially calm and peaceful, life slows down and it feels like a dream. There’s an unmistakable stillness that hits the mood and the senses like a wave - striking and startling all at once. It shifts from calm and serene to jarring and uncomfortable just like that. Questions and confusion overwhelm the quiet, a nagging disbelief and an alarming amount of doubt turn the once peaceful day away.
Maybe it doesn’t have to be that way. Maybe, instead of the usual evolution of the day you choose to embrace the calm and take comfort in the peace? Drink in this serene day (and bake)!
Actually, not bake. Make. Make tea. Light tea. Sipping tea.
that’s floral, fresh, and delicate,
with a subtle and almost-sweet flavour (without the addition of sugar),
that’s a delight to make and sip,
that’s fragrant and illuminating,
with an understated tone that’s effortless to sit with and savor...

Baking can be a lot of things – it can be distracting but simple, it can be movement with focus, it can be whatever you need when you need it. Choose a recipe to fit the mood and it becomes a useful tool as well – baking to quiet the mind, to connect with your emotions, or simply baking to feel emotional. Just think of the feelings you get and the emotions you experience when baking your favourite dessert…. excitement, relief, fulfillment, joy, accomplishment.
