a tea moment

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis on which the earth revolves;
Slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future;
Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

love that one! Here are 2 offerings:

“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

I started a thread a while ago looking for tea quotes for a tattoo, here are the ones I posted

Tea tempers the spirit and harmonizes the mind.

One sip of this will bathe the drooping spirits in a light, beyond the bliss of dreams.

A home without tea is merely a house.

Come let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things

Oh, I love the ‘happy things’ one. :)

Serenity I haven’t yet, turns out the teapot I wanted someone else got, so I am on the hunt for the perfect teapot & still looking for the perfect quote.

Tea Poem: A Cup Of Tea
By Anonymous

When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
The world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.

Tea is nothing but this:
First you heat the water,
Then you make the tea,
Then you drink it properly,
That is all you need to know.
