{tea time}

This morning, in the mood for spring, and feeling rather British after discovering all the lovely "tea" quotes {below} I made some strawberries and cream muffins, and, of course
drank some tea.

If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty.  
~Japanese Proverb

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

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.  
~Thich Nhat Hahn

Find yourself a cup of tea; the teapot is behind you.  Now tell me about hundreds of things.  

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.  
~C.S. Lewis

Great love affairs start with Champagne and end with tea.  
~Honoré de Balzac

tea leaves

tea loves
loves tea
lives tea
leaves tea?
~Uniek Swain

Did I mention my baby showers are all this month?
I am beyond excited!
One even has a "tea party" theme...
