7 Best Tea Quotes (With Photos) To Make Your Day Better and Brighter

In his book The Compound Effect, author and former publisher of SUCCESS magazine Darren Hardy says - it takes around three hundred instances of any deliberate act to become an ingrained, involuntary habit. Well, if that is the case then I must have surely had at least three hundred cups of tea, for it is the first thing I do every single morning. In many cultures around the world, the art of drinking tea is associated with mindfulness and a form of meditation. You are forced to stop rushing through the day, stay still and enjoy a cup, one-sip-at-a-time. Over the course of many years, I managed to capture a few moments in my camera and paired with a favorite quote on tea, below are snapshots of this most treasured habit of mine. Enjoy.

"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." - William Ewart Gladstone                      

"A cup of tea is a cup of peace"
- Soshitsu Sen XV

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis

“Tea ... is a religion of the art of life.” ― Okakura Kakuz┼Ź, The Book of Tea

“Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.” ― Bill Watterson, The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book

“The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce.” ― Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

“I like pouring your tea, lifting
the heavy pot, and tipping it up,
so the fragrant liquid streams in your china cup.
Or when you’re away, or at work,
I like to think of your cupped hands as you sip,
as you sip, of the faint half-smile of your lips.
I like the questions – sugar? – milk? –
and the answers I don’t know by heart, yet,
for I see your soul in your eyes, and I forget.
Jasmine, Gunpowder, Assam, Earl Grey, Ceylon,
I love tea’s names. Which tea would you like? I say
but it’s any tea for you, please, any time of day,
as the women harvest the slopes
for the sweetest leaves, on Mount Wu-Yi,
and I am your lover, smitten, straining your tea.”
― Carol Ann Duffy, Rapture

Here's wishing these seven cups of bliss bring in lots of calm into your lives and you have a wonderful week ahead!
