Wordless Wednesday: A Cup of Tea

Whenever I am in deep thought and need to take a break,  I boil a pot of water and pour it over my favorite loose leaf tea.  I love drinking tea.  It is calming and refreshing.  I read this poem today and thought what a wonderful description of tea for tea lovers.

I’ve taken tea on Bahrain’s isle,
Sri Lanka and Hong-Kong,
Where desert sands run mile on mile
And sunlight’s powerful strong;
Tea from the gallery in our plane
Gave ease when flights were long.
In tropic heat, in freezing rain
The tea-cup came along.

Tea in Japan, tea in Malay,
Tea in Aden’s heat.
At cricket on a summer’s day
A tea is hard to beat.
And I remember taking tea in the land of Lorna Doone
With Devon cream – just you and me
Whilst on our honeymoon.

– Tea, Please by Jasper Miles, 1994

    That’s neat how the image on the saucer and cup match up… the photo makes me want to close my eyes and enjoy the sunlight. Feels warm 🙂
