Andrew Weil's Essay: A Life With Tea

One of my friends recently pointed me to Andrew Weil's essay: A Life With Tea. Andrew Weil is a prominent medical doctor who is one of the most mainstream advocates of alternative medicine. He founded the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, and he generally advocates for an integration of western medicine and "alternative" medicine practices, using western medicine primarily for crisis intervention and alternative medicine primarily for maintaining wellness.

I love this essay because it touches on all the key ways in which I connect with tea: the healthful properties of tea, the exploration of different taste and aroma experiences when drinking tea, and the meditative aspects of the process of preparing and drinking tea.

It's a brief article that a number of others might enjoy!
