Litera-Tea~ March 23-29th

I have been taking part in a fun "blog-a-thon" sponsored by Gracious Hospitality at:

This weeks theme is "Tea in Literature"

We are to share tea quotes, stories or our favorite book about tea.

I thought that I'd share a few tea quotes with you all.
There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea. ~Bernard-Paul Heroux
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
We had a kettle;we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.~Rudyard Kipling
O' peppermint tea
-two delights per sip
as steamy hot as passion
cool as a wintry lake dip
~Astrid Alauda
Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it still sings! ~Author Unknown
Tea that helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who're cold.
J. Jonker, Amsterdam, circa 1670
"I can just imagine myself sitting down at the head of the table and pouring out the tea," said Anne, shutting her eyes ecstatically, "and asking Diana if she takes sugar! I know she doesn't but of course I'll ask her just as if I didn't know."--Anne of Green Gables
Come and share a pot of tea,My home is warm and my friendship's free.--Emilie Barnes
~~~~Wishing you all a lovely day!~

These are wonderful! Thank you! I'm really a tea person (not a coffee person) so especially nice! Love the tea poster -- may have to get that one!

Can I drop in for a cuppa?
My fave beverage of all time.
Must be black tea and brewed 5 minutes in a teapot with cosy.
I spin the pot 3 times to the right for good luck before pouring.

Thanks for the visit!
I drink coffee in the morning....too much of it!
However, if I'm needing to warm my insides during the middle of the day, a cup or two of tea is the only thing that will do. Love lemon/mint tea!

these quotes are great!

Great quotes, Tina! You have found some I have never read before --- thank you for sharing them. I love the poster as well. I found it recently in a postcard size at a local tearoom and bought it to use in a tea album. It's so interesting to look at.

For some reason I couldn't get your "Mr. Linky" to work on my page. Does it work for you? I ended up using my link to your blog from my side-bar. If it doesn't work for you either, it is okay to post again on Mr. Linky and I will delete the first one. Maybe, though, it's just my computer.

Thanks so much for sharing! I am enjoying your blog and all your interesting posts!
