a hot cup of tea

This past weekend, T-man and I decided to try a restaurant called True Food Kitchen. The menu is based on Dr. Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet, which is intended to help counteract the root cause of many chronic diseases. Interesting, but really I just love their motto:

At True Food Kitchen, we want you to feel better, live longer,
and make your mouth happy in the process.

Although I failed to get any photographic evidence, they definitely achieved that last part.

And then, at the end of the meal, we did something we never do — we both decided to order hot tea. Somehow with the fall chill in the air and the healthy food we’d eaten, it just felt like the right kind of nightcap. {Our indulgent Friday night may’ve also been a factor in that decision…}

As it turns out, 2-4 cups of tea per day is recommended as part of the anti-inflammatory diet, so they don’t mess around when they serve it. The teas came in individual teapots on fancy platters with big mugs and the most delicious honey I may’ve ever had. A nice presentation always helps build your enjoyment, right?

We each probably had 2-3 cup-fulls of tea and really indulged in it. We stayed talking long after the meal was over, digesting {I assume} and enjoying the coziness of our teas. There’s no other way to describe it except incredibly lovely.

A cup of tea is the best

So now I’m totally set on drinking more hot tea. No, not to the point of giving up my morning coffee or anything crazy like that, but a hot cup of tea to end the night? Sign me up.

Here’s to the cozy, comfort and warmth that tea brings. Oh, and maybe a new teapot.
