Yesterday was La Ba (臘八), La Ba is not a holiday but is the last mark of the yearly energy, it is the coldest day in a year according to the Chinese Lunar calendar.
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:
- good quality of tea
- 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.
