Tea is the glue that keeps me together…

My mug of tea

I love tea – really, I do. I worship at the altar of the tea plant, a hot, steaming mug of Yorkshire tea or a delicate vintage china tea cup of Assam will do me nicely thanks. Which leads me onto this quote

“If you are cold, tea will warm you.

If you are too heated, it will cool you.

If you are depressed, it will cheer you.

If you are excited, it will calm you.”  ~ Gladstone, 1865
