“On the hob was a little brass kettle, hissing and boiling; spread upon the floor was a warm, thick rug; before the fire was a folding-chair, unfolded and with cushions upon it, by the chair was a small folding-table, unfolded, covered with a white cloth, and upon it were spread small covered dishes, a cup and saucer, and a tea-pot; on the bed were new, warm coverings, a curious wadded silk robe, and some books. The little, cold, miserable room seemed changed into Fairyland. It was actually warm and glowing. “~Frances Hodgson Burnett, Sara Crewe; or What Happened at Miss Minchin’s
Nothing quite calms the soul and stirs the imagination like the preparation and sharing of tea. This is one of my favorite book quotes about tea. It can truly change a bad day to a peaceful day within minutes.
Be mindful of what things steal your peace and what things restore it.
Love and Tea! Patricia
