The Tea Doctor: Welcome, 22 Aug 2001 [cached]
While studying for a dissertation in behavioral science at Oxford University in England in the early 1990's, Dr. Tice was particularly interested in stress as it occurs in the workplace.She also learned to appreciate the British custom of tea time.
"One of the biggest ways to alleviate stress is to take time for a cup of tea in the afternoon and just a light snack," Tice said."It hits us at about the time we used to nap as children."
Dr. Tice particularly advocates taking afternoon tea in place of the traditional 'three-martini' business lunches at the workplace.The setting of the tea, including the use of nice cups and silver, helps workers feel a bit more special about their place in the meeting, and sets the tone for civility.Afternoon tea also comes at a time when many people feel the lull of the day, and the tea and snack provide a lift.
Afternoon tea, as Dr. Tice creates its, includes fresh seasonal fruit, small desserts, and finger sandwiches.To accompany these tasty bites, Dr. Tice takes pains to be sure that her guests are enjoying very good teas.
"Most people have never had a good cup of tea, and they are surprised to find how delicious it can be," says The Tea Doctor.She also advises her clients how to choose high quality tea and locate sources for it.There is a wrong way to brew tea, and a better way, as Dr. Tice explains, "Cold water, straight from the tap, brought to a boil on the stove, makes the best tea.The water should not be heated in the microwave."
Through her background as a therapist, counselor, and teacher she is capably equipped to help business clients arrange successful teas.Dr. Tice has worked for several corporate clients, and is also the tea advisor to Iowa's First Lady, Mrs. Christy Vilsack.
A recent bride-to-be found herself surrounded by friends enjoying Dr. Tice's tea carried out in a Scottish theme, as befitted her and her groom's ancestral families.
Stories about the health benefits of tea have appeared in the media more and more over the last few years.Dr. Tice could be considered proof of that also, as she is a breast cancer survivor and speaks publicly about the physical and emotional effects of that disease.She has recently appeared before a Scientific Peer Review Panel for the U.S. Department of Defense.The government funds breast cancer research programs and must decide among dozens of proposals.Survivors of the disease are regularly included in the decision-making process.Dr. Tice assisted the panel by traveling to Virginia this month to help them understand the emotional, physical, and social issues of the disease.
You can share a cup of tea with Dr. Patricia Tice and First Lady Christy Vilsack on August 25 at Barnes & Noble Bookstore in West Des Moines, or at Schaffer's Bridal Shop in Des Moines on September 8.Other upcoming appearances can be found on her website,, or you can contact her at 515-457-7590.Be sure and watch for Dr. Tice's first book, "Give Stress a Rest," which will be published in September.
