Soothing Drink

My father was taken to a hospital by ambulance last Christmas. Luckily it was not life threatening, but his both hands are paralyzed. He still needs rehab to move his hands. 

In order to spend the New Year with us at home, he left the hospital. Back to home, he had a cup of Sencha made by Mom. He looked relieved and said, “It is good. Really tasty......”

He cannot even hold a teacup by himself and has to drink it using a straw. Even so, the tea soothed him. 

I knew tea makes us happy and soothing. But once again his word and face reminds me of the power of tea.
