You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.  ~C.S. Lewis

Life is always brighter when accompanied by a steaming cup of tea. My tea of choice is strong English Breakfast with a dollop of honey, and plenty of milk.

My first cup of tea each morning serves as the herald of my day – helping me gain awareness and giving me time to adjust. It is a moment of calm before the storm – taken in bed, as it is – and usually made by my lovely husband.

Tea is drunk to forget the din of the world.  ~T’ien Yiheng

Throughout the day, cups of tea will flow. They will keep me going, while also giving a chance to stop and rest for just a moment.

When things are going wrong, a cup of tea will help set them to rights. A cup of tea will always be made when my family sits down together. Making a cup of tea for someone is a tiny way of saying ‘I love you’.

There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.  ~Bernard-Paul Heroux

Tea is an even more pronounced fact of life now that I’m married to an Englishman. The English really do take tea-appreciation to a whole new level. Though, I have to say – I’m glad I married a man who isn’t jealous of my love affair with tea. That would never do!

Is tea one of your simple pleasures?
