Information: As far as states of being go, tranquility ranks right up near the top of what we as human beings aspire to.  For some it’s a walk in the woods, taking the air while birds call from the trees.  For others tranquility is found within - a calming of the spirit.  Throughout human history many have tried to capture the feeling of tranquility and what it means to us as individuals. The ancient Greeks developed the concept of ataraxia, the absence of cares and freedom from worry.  From Buddhism we get Passaddhi, tranquility of the body, speech and thoughts on the path to enlightenment. More recently, Romantic poet William Wordsworth, (7 April 1770 – 23 April 1850) wrote that “poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility”.  We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves.    

Unfortunately, as modern people in our busy world, finding peaceful moments in which to reflect on life and wax poetic may be a little hard to find.  There are meetings to go to, sales figures to hit and clients to impress – who has time for enlightenment?  Thankfully, we’ve put together this sumptuous blend of calming herbs and spices to help you slow down, get grounded and enjoy the stillness of time and place for a few moments.  The next time you’re feeling the pressure of daily life and need a little retreat, let the round herbaceous notes of Fairmont Tranquility take you on a personal journey of inner peace.  

Hot tea brewing method:  Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea or 1 teabag for each 8 ounces of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). This tea is best when consumed without milk or sugar. 

Iced tea-brewing method:  (to make 1 liter/quart):  Place 6 teaspoons of tea or 6 teabags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
