Whether you take your tea with a sweet pikelet, or are having a princess-themed tea party with a lost doll, tea drinkers always seems more patient. There is definitely a certain calmness that seems to resonate from a tea drinker, and putting your finger on the exact reason might be a bit difficult. To make life a little easier, we have developed a list of reasons why people who love tea are endlessly more patient.
1. They have better hearts
Tea drinkers have better hearts. It’s not a joke. Tea is known to promote heart health, and that can have lasting effects on a person’s patience, make them less stressed, and–let’s be honest–allows them to hang around as our favorite person just a little bit longer. Drinking that delicious drink gives you an amazing move forward.
2. They have young minds
They are young souls, with a cool calm brain. Tea drinkers come equipped for the long-haul, with great brain health well into their later years. This can help avoid the grumpy impatience that comes with yelling at youths to “get off your lawn”. The mental health benefits that tea offers will keep tea drinkers in a laid back attitude for years.
3. They are focused listeners
Those that enjoy tea seem to be stoically good listeners. There could be a thunderstorm around your conversation, and yet the tea-drinker has the persistence to calmly sip their tea, make eye contact, and keep the conversation on you. There could be a battle around you, with Vikings slamming battle axes into each other, yet your words are all that matter to the poised pinky swishing sipper or firm handled mug gripper. Their good listening skills make tea drinkers the absolute best! Besides, with their mouths full of delicious tea, it forces those teetotalers to be excellent listeners.
4. They are calm and happy
The soothing taste of tea lingering on their tongue, a warm hug from a mug, and the best way to take a break, tea drinkers stay calm and happy all day long. From a cuppa’ at noon to a cup of herbal right before bed, the reason tea drinkers are so calm and happy comes from the bit of hot water and dried leaves. Even if they seem semi-manic about the way their cup if prepared, to the point that you have had passing thoughts that (maybe) they might be manic enough to have a secret excel sheet tracking the ways that they want it on particular days. But even with a manic side, you know they’d be happy to show you how make one to. A tea drinker will take the time to do things, from showing off their skills to making sure that you understand.
5. They are perky
Tea drinkers have got that natural pop from the smooth caffeine available in most teas. The drinkers of this divine brew (after the first cup) are the smoothest morning people. Humming along with their first sip underway already, tea drinkers will be the first ones awake if there is a kettle available to scream, and will be the first one to wake you with a smile.
6. They know there is nothing worse than burning your tongue
They are always patient because tea drinkers have learned their lesson from 1,001 burned tongues. There is nothing worse than burning your tongue on a mug fresh off the screaming kettle; it’s the worst betrayal of all. Why would your loving tea hurt you in this way?! After burning themselves on tea, every tea drinker has found the reason to have patience: for the perfect cup of tea, and the ability to taste for several days!
Tea drinkers are the most patient people on the planet. From their all day perk, to their calm, stress-free attitudes, and amazing hearts, you’d have to murder a whole pack of orphans before a tea drinker will lose their patience. Watch for the tiny flags of friendship hanging from their mugs next time you’re out and about.
