A cup of tea: take time to make things special

Today in her post, "Tea for two – it’s the small things in life that count", Cynthia mentions two books by Thomas Moore: The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life and Care of the Soul. She writes that Moore "talks about taking the time to make things special. It’s been a while since I read his book but the idea stayed with me. The image of a beautiful tea pot, beautiful cups and flavoursome tea was inspiring." She describes a recent visit to a tea shop in Sydney and concludes with a sentiment probably also shared by Moore, "It’s the small things in life that count."
