Anyone who knows me even a little knows that I love tea. I drink anywhere from 3 to 6 cups a day. The whole process of making tea is very therapeutic. I have very bad anxiety, and the process of boiling the water, filling the tea bag with loose leaf tea, cinching it up, pouring in the water, and letting it steep helps ground me to my surroundings. Recently, I got a tea press as a gift with purchase from my favorite store, David’sTea. It originally was $35, and I had been eyeing it for a while. I can make both iced and hot tea in this, and it steeps it to a perfect temperature and a perfect level of strongness. Pictured is not my specific tea press, but one from the same company that I also adore.
