Raising teens, you will learn that all of life’s surprises are easier to deal with over a pot of tea. It can also be a great way to bond with your kids. Remember when they used to have tea parties? Good times. With the Hamilton Beach Kettle, you can relive those tea parties with our now much bigger kids and play with blooming teas, herbal teas and teas that will give you the energy you need to get to soccer practice, a poultry show and girl guides.
An easy cup of tea will help you find the time to it down with your teen, and give them a steamy cover to hide behind as they open up about their day, their friendships and their fears.
The clink of the spoon against the cup breaks the silence and opens the door for conversations.
And with the Hamilton Beach Kettle’s “stay warm feature” you can keep refilling the cup until they have finished emptying their worries on the table.
The most important thing that bringing back tea time gives us is time. Through that beautiful process of steeping, time seems to stand still, allowing us in this crazy digital world, a chance to shut off for a moment. I can’t begin to understand what my children are experiencing with their constant access to technology, or how that will develop their personalities. But I can create moments where we pause time, and sit over steaming cups, connecting face to face (or tea cup to tea cup) without distraction.
Even if it last just long enough for the kettle to boil.
