The Most Consoling and Comfortable

"I enjoy tea, first of all, because it reminds me of my father who was English and drank only tea. We never used tea bags in the home. We always brewed tea, and I remember the lovely aroma and the feel of the warm pot. I also, somehow, find tea very consoling."

"To me, afternoon tea is a very great pleasure and luxury. However, I am rarely home at that time. When visiting London, I think there is nothing lovelier than afternoon tea with little watercress or cucumber sandwiches. . .yum yum. . .I wish I could do this at home."

"It seems to me that tea is the most consoling and comfortable of beverages, and also, if one drinks tea, herb tea is probably the healthiest."

  1. Very good writting about tea - for us tea lovers or tea snobs ;)- it's a delious treat to be spoiled with. Have a great day.

  2. I love tea-- All flavors & the cucumber sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, lemon curd........ Visiting tea houses with friends is one of my favorite things.

    Your blog is lovely, I enjoyed all the colorful pictures too.

    Relax with a hot cup of tea!

  5. I love my morning coffee with half 'n' half, and I ususally have an afternoon tea break. It just seems refreshing and relaxing to do it.
