Tea is a cup of life. ~ Author Unknown
Tea warms our chilled souls in February, and cools our sweaty brows in August. As southern as sweetea, or as exotic as hand rolled jasmine pearl tea, this refreshing elixir has quenched thirst for thousands of years.
We clasp bone china cups, becoming dizzy with the fragrance. We lean against porch rails, guzzling cold relief from plastic cups.
No matter how we prefer our tea; no matter the time of year or even the century, such a deceivingly simple mixture of fresh water and dried leaves, grasses and blooms, delights and inspires us.
