How to elevate everyday tea and biscuits moments at home
Find the best quality coffee, tea, and biscuits
Experiment with new ways of brewing tea and coffee
If your usual routine doesn’t go beyond putting a teabag in a mug or popping a coffee pod in your machine, then why not try branching out into some more unusual brewing methods? For instance, you could try making coffee using the pour-over method or a cafetiere — these methods bring out the flavour of your beans and will fill your kitchen with the delicious scent of freshly brewed coffee.
Should you be more of a tea drinker, then switching to loose leaf brewing methods can make a difference to the strength and flavour of your cuppa. You could also try your hand at making more unusual teas using traditional brewing methods, such as making Japanese matcha tea using a whisk and tea bowl. Not only will using these methods help to enhance the flavours of your drinks, but they can also be a lovely ritual if you take the time to enjoy performing them.
Invest in some beautiful tableware
Serving your drinks in some beautiful tableware can make an ordinary drink feel like something you’d find in an upmarket coffee shop or luxury tearoom. Rather than reaching for whatever mismatched mugs you have in the cupboard, you could try serving your coffee, tea and biscuits on cups and plates that you really love the look of and enjoy using. Using a cup and saucer set can make a simple cup of tea or coffee and a couple of sweet treats feel much more special, even if it’s just a 10-minute break in the middle of a busy day.
For a truly premium feel, you can opt for handcrafted ceramic cups and saucers — you can really feel the difference with every sip. A high-quality set should be strong and versatile enough to use every single day, allowing you to elevate all of your tea and biscuit moments!
Take your time and be mindful
This doesn’t allow you to stop and savour the flavours of your brew and biscuits, nor will you get a proper break. So, try taking the time to savour the ritual of making your hot drinks, and then sit down to enjoy them as mindfully as possible. You’ll find that you feel much more refreshed and ready to focus if you allow yourself a break in this way.
Stopping for a cuppa and some lovely biscuits can boost your mood, so why not find ways to make it more special? Try using some of the tips we’ve shared here to make your daily coffee or tea break feel truly enjoyable.
