Just love this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt on Tea ‘ A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water’…
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (/ˈɛlᵻnɔːr ˈroʊzəvɛlt/; October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962) was an American politician, diplomat, and activist. She was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, holding the post from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt‘s four terms in office, and served as United States Delegate to the United Nations General Assembly from 1945 to 1952. President Harry S. Truman later called her the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to herhuman rights achievements.
Tang dynasty poet Lu Tung said of tea –
The first bowl moistens my lips and throat. The second bowl breaks my loneliness. The third bowl searches my barren brain
The fourth cup raises a slight perspiration. The fifth cup
purifies my bones and makes me feel light. The sixth cup links me to the realms of the immortals.
