Drinking a cup of lemon tea right now. It's delicious. We have a club here at school devoted entirely to the drinking of tea. It's called Tea Empire, and it's quite fun, each week we drink a different themed set of teas. Reminded me of this poem, that I first read in a Laura Childs Tea Shop Mystery.

Tea Poem, by Annonymous

When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
The world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.
