You've Got This

A Message from the Co-Founder of Tielka

By now, you're probably stocked up on toilet paper, some extra pasta and oil in the cupboard, a few loaves of bread in the freezer. You've probably kept one of your kids at home (not to freak anyone out with her occasional cough), or are considering maybe that slight sniffle should ground you for a day or two, at least just to make sure. Your mind has boggled at the enormity of the fallout surrounding COVID-19 and you may have even wondered, for a brief moment, if it would be less damaging just to let the damn thing rage and let everyone get on with their lives.

The world is being turned upside down faster than we can absorb and right now it can feel like the only thing we have is uncertainty.

Two years ago, our world was turned upside down with the arrival of a beautiful baby boy who came with a myriad of unexpected medical complications and lifelong challenges. We were smacked square in the face with what felt like a future of uncertainty. In spite of this, there was a peace that anchored us. And even through the pain of uncertainty, my heart had been set up to find moments of joy from the days, weeks, months and years of starting my day drinking endless cups of tea under the shelter of a beautiful umbrella on our back deck.

This morning as I write this, I want to encourage you. You've got this. Maybe you're taking this in your stride, maybe it's absorbing your every thought. But what I'm certain is that you know there is hope to be found. That's why you're still reading.

And, that's why, in the tradition that is Tielka, I encourage you, particularly in this season of uncertainty, keep making yourself a beautiful cup of tea, find your shelter and know hope.

It's 8:47am. 

You're closing in on the start of your day and feel like you already need a break.

Conversations out loud with small people buzzing at your feet.

Conversations in your head with big people who are most certainly wrong.

You've sorted them all out. You don't feel any better for it.

Where did all the energy go?

You've probably noticed how your day flows better when you start with a cup of tea. 

Time for yourself. A moment of clarity.

Your morning cup sets you on a good path for the rest of the day.

Combine that with a mid morning cuppa, early, late afternoon sips and an evening herbal and your day is broken into approachable chunks of time.

It's no secret that habits form the basis of success, and a day built around habitual cups of tea creates a perfect framework to organise your day.

If you're just as excited as we were that this could even be a thing, hold on to your knickers, this white tea party is just getting started. 

Remember how white tea is jam-packed with antioxidants and supports skin elasticity?

And how can we forget about theanine, that magical amino acid in white tea that gives you a massive mood boost? 

Well, what if we added some lemon, a little honey, and GIN?
