tea

so i am researching some quotes on tea for a project...here are some i like...

Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors. ~Alice Walker

Great love affairs start with Champagne and end with tisane. ~Honoré de Balzac

Tea's proper use is to amuse the idle, and relax the studious, and dilute the full meals of those who cannot use exercise, and will not use abstinence. ~Samuel Johnson

Another novelty is the tea-party, an extraordinary meal in that, being offered to persons that have already dined well, it supposes neither appetite nor thirst, and has no object but distraction, no basis but delicate enjoyment. ~Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

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

Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it still sings! ~Author Unknown

“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea” ~Henry James
