Tea the drink that saves the day
I live in a house where tea punctuates every occasion. Pause and tea is prepared. Panic and tea is prepared. Come home late after drinking and tea makes all the difference next day. It is not that I don’t like coffee, I do, but tea seems to save the day. Then there is a special cup of tea out of proper cups and saucers. Recently I rewarded myself with a set of six Edwardian cups and saucers. They elevate the tea to a level above the normal. There is a magic space of calm whilst the tea is drunk. The world may come rushing back in but there has been that moment of quiet and calm that was just a cup of tea.
