Tea helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who're cold.

Although I don't recall where I first found this picture, it is one of my favorites because it tells a story and elicits an emotional response from the viewer. This could be your Grandma, or mine. . .and nothing sounds nicer than sipping a cup of tea with Grandmother!


  1. Well it does help if "grandmother" loves tea. Mine loves her coffee and don't mess with it. Ha! I'm still enjoying my afternoon tea and it may come early. I try to wait until after three, but I've been out helping to shovel and so I think I deserve some early.

  2. Oh, I love the picture, too. Love Grammie's feathered hat...woohoo! That is the pizazz. Thanks for sharing La Tea Dah! Sincerely, Susan from

  3. A very cute picture. It is so fun to look for tea pictures. I haven't seen this one and loved the words too.

  4. What a sweet picture. I so enjoy sharing afternoon tea with my daughter, aunt, or mother in love :-)
