I am a true blood tea lover. Any hour of the day, to wake to, to sleep to, to wonder, to ponder, to decide, to defer, to gossip, to cry, to laugh, to tell, to listen, to watch, to feel, to silence, to calm, to love, to worry, to share, to secrets, to conversations, to us.
Those were my words. Now let's listen to the words of literary genius who too vouch for the greatest invention of mankind. The root of all civilisation and culture.
I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small-
Three guest in all-
Just I, myself and me.
Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.”
― Jessica Nelson North

“Come oh come ye tea-thirsty restless ones - the kettle boils, bubbles and sings, musically.”

Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.”
