MAY's Mother's Day Tea Together event
Time & Location
About the Event
For centuries, people across the globe have testified to the relaxing and invigorating qualities of tea. The traditional calming effects of the plant Camellia sinensis have elevated the drink, which is produced from its leaves, to a role beyond quenching thirst — it is drunk as an aid for meditation, to help soothe the nerves or simply to unwind. But although the mental-health benefits of C. sinensis are common knowledge among tea drinkers, scientists are only now beginning to examine how tea exerts its effects on mood and cognition.
Researchers have found, for instance, that drinking tea lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol. And evidence of long-term health benefits is emerging, too: drinking at least 100 millilitres (about half a cup) of green tea a day seems to lower the risk of developing depression and dementia.
We need eachother in this journey. When we come together over afternoon tea, we have an opportunity to share our story and love on one another. This event will be limited to 14 spots so we can socially distance and keep safe during the pandemic. Mahalo Tammy for offering each of us an invitation to be honored, loved and relax in the comfort of other moms who understand.
