“Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea! How did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea.”
I remember the first time I realised the power of tea. I was thirteen and feeling sad. I made myself a cup of tea, sat down at the kitchen table and slowly sipped on it. As the hot liquid made its way to my stomach, something happened: I felt comforted; I felt calmed; I realised that maybe things weren’t so bad after all.
