Holi – Celebrating the Festival of Rang (Colors)

Holi post

Every year we celebrate the spirit of love with vibrant colors on Holi. With the onset of spring, India gets into the colorful mood that signifies celebration due to good harvests and land’s fertility.

Holi is a festival steeped in traditions, culture and colors. It’s an occasion when everyone comes together and celebrates life. We reset and renew ruptured relationships, end old conflicts and get rid of accumulated emotional impurities from the past. We find new spaces and make new friends.

Holi is also considered the festival of Gods. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Kirishna used to play holi with his friends and followers. Even today, the Holi celebrated in Vrindavan (birthplace of Lord Krishna) is one of the grandest celebrations. People from around the world travel thousands of miles just to be part of this kaleidoscopic rendezvous.

Holi has become an international festival that symbolises colors and joy. People across borders celebrate it unanimously, making new friends and remembering some old. This festivity brings colors in everyone’s life in it’s own unique way, every year.

So, step out, carry some colors/gulal and indulge in this colorful celebration. Let’s celebrate the symbolic reminder of peace, harmony and prosperity. Here’s wishing all our readers and their loved ones, a very happy and a prosperous Holi!

Happy Diwali – A Celebration of Our Inner Light

Love for Tea

Love for Tea wishes everyone a very Happy Diwali. We believe Diwali is a celebration of inner light and on this auspicious day we wish everyone around the world immense health, love, happiness and success for the year to come.

Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word Deepavali which literally means “a row of lights”. Diwali is celebrated by hindus around the world and marks the beginning of the New Year. It historically symbolises the victory of good over evil and celebrates the inner light on both community and personal level. This festival is time to rejoice with family and friends. Homes are cleaned and decorated with bright earthen lamps and delicious meals are prepared and shared with everyone. Family gatherings, glittering clay lamps, festive fireworks, strings of electric lights, bonfires, flowers, sharing of sweets and gifts and worship of goddess Lakshmi form the essence of Diwali.

We believe Diwali is a perfect time to turn inwards and light the lamps of knowledge and truth in our hearts and minds. It’s time to dispel the forces of darkness and ignorance within us. It’s time to rise up and ignite the inner goodness. The world is at war. People are at war. It’s time to see beyond borders, better understand our prejudices and ignite compassion in our hearts.

Just as the flame points upwards, Diwali is most importantly a time to celebrate and appreciate life and look forward to the coming year with a renewed sense of purpose and passion. Here’s wishing everyone a very happy Diwali again from the entire team of ‘Love for Tea’. May the force be with you. Shine on!

Take A Little Time And Enjoy TEA

Season greetings

Drink smart this 2015.

Take a little time out for yourself, sit back, relax and enjoy a nice cup of tea. Having some tea each day can do wonders for your health. So, stop being anti-social this 2015, keep your phones aside, and drink more tea with your family and friends, because there are so many kinds of tea and so little time! 

Merry Christmas And Happy 2015
