Tea and awesome cups

When leaving a harmful habit. Replace it with a beneficial one.

No more sheesha or paan (chewing tobacco) for me. That doesn't mean I never touch the stuff. I've left it as a regular on going part of my life. But have not forbidden myself from it. So not on my home. But if once in a blue moon its fine.

I came to understand somthing about my self. I enjoy the ritual of packing the sheesha, preparing the coal etc. Same with the paan. So I had to replace it with a different ritual.

Now I make tea. Green tea, white tea etc. The ritual is simple boil water, add to awesome cup. Leave for 10 sec, add diffuser with loose leaves. Wait 3min and remove diffuser.

I use the same set of leaves another two times.
