Actually we had a very nice weather in Belgium yesterday. Just before we can cheer for “Ja”, hold on just a second, the temperature is dropping. So be aware when you go out, but don’t just stay in door all the time. Having some fresh air is healthy and having a good cup of tea that helps to stimulate the Yang energy definitely is a great treatment to yourself.

A nice cup of tea requires two basic elements:

  1. good quality of tea
  2. steeping tea correctly

Actually there is another critical element that is even more important —– Nice people who appreciate it

Raise my cup and wish you all a nice day.
