"It was George Eliot who earnestly inquired, 'Reader, have you ever drunk a
cup of tea?' There is something undeniably heartwarming and
conversation-making in a cup of steaming hot tea. . . It is an ideal
prescription for banishing loneliness. Perhaps it is not so much the tea
itself, as the circle of happy friends eager for a pleasant chat."
