Fun Activi-teas for Father’s Day Bonding
- Brew yourself and your old man a good strong cup and sit down with some family albums or home videos for a stroll down memory lane; make sure some tissues are on hand when the tears start flowing about how thick and luscious his hair used to be.
- Cook up one of our delicious tea-infused recipes (see below for a few suggestions) together while blasting your favorite songs; the neighbors can deal with it.
- Treat dad to a home spa experience with a tea-inspired foot soak. For the foot soak, combine epsom salts and a fragrant loose leaf tea (may we suggest peppermint?), in a 4:1 ratio and add to a tub of warm water. Get those hairy dad feet out of their shoes and into the tub quickly and let 'em soak. Follow up with a foot rub and your dad will be purring (or more likely snoring) with happiness in no time. Store any remnants in an airtight container for future foot soaks!
