A time before tea? Unthinkable.

I love tea.
I struggle without it.
As Sydney Smith said Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea?-how did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea.

"If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty."
Japanese Proverb

I also love the position of tea in society (not to mention in the Asterix books) and all the things I associate with it. Warmth and friends and blue & white china.

We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.

Rudyard Kipling

  1. I just read your comments on your love of tea; they were pretty funny. I can see you take tea drinking very seriously! Over here I drink unsweetened iced tea but now that I got a beautiful tea diffuser (?) for Christmas this year I plan to develop my taste for warm tea. I used to drink warm tea with a bit of milk and sweetener years ago (please don't roll your eyes!). I am always open to pointers! Well, just wanted you to know I enjoyed your post.
