Joining us in this episode is Colin Hudon, the founder of Living Tea. Nathalie has a deep love for tea practice and meditation with tea, and Living Tea is where she gets most of her teas from. In this episode, we’ll explore tea ceremonies, mindful living, nature, meditation, different types of teas, subtle body energies, and how you can start your own tea practice.
Tea as a way of life and tradition is something that is usually not understood in the West, and it is just beginning to make its way into the Western consciousness. Colin educates us about how tea is related to the study of nature and what makes tea a way of life.
Colin believes that tea is a wonderful way to start your day because it brings calmness and focus. He takes us through his morning routine, including what types of tea he prefers to drink when preparing for the day. He also talks about different types of meditation.
There is definitely a place for scientific studies on tea, but Colin says that a scientific study devoid of connecting with the spirit of tea will lead to tea snobbery. However, if you begin your tea journey in a simple way that is about modesty, connection, and meditation, you won’t run that risk.
