My friends and colleagues tell me that I like to talk (about tea) a lot. However, I’m not the only one! Today, I want to share some of my favorite tea-related quotes, to show how tea has really infused itself into literature, politics, lifestyle and all of modern culture.
“A woman is like a teabag, you can’t know how strong she is until you put her in hot water.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt (former first lady of the US)
“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me”
– C.S. Lewis (author, Chronicles of Narnia)
“If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty” – Japanese Proverb
“There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, they drink tea.”
– Gary Snyder (beat poet)
