Living Between the Lines,  Tidbits - the written word

A nice Cup of Tea…

The recent controversial news from America regarding salt in tea, using a kettle versus microwaving (eek! What?!)

I thought as a Brit, I’d pen a few key points that make tea the number one drink for all occasions using a kettle (in my opinion – as a Brit, I am not pushy LOL!)

My thoughts when:

1. A friend pops in feeling glum
me. I’ll pop the kettle on, sit down and relax for a bit

2. A stressful situation is getting out of hand…
me. Calm down, have a nice cup of tea

3. I really don’t know what do next…
me. Have a cup of tea, it’ll help you think…

4. I’m exhausted!
me. I’ll make you a nice cup of tea…

5. A work meeting (there are options):
me. Tea anyone?

me. That’d be lovely/
c. small voice: May I have a coffee? (more common in the morning)

6. Just home from an arduous journey by car, plane or train
me. Before we unpack, let’s have a nice cup of tea…

7. A freezing cold day…
me. Here, a cup of tea will warm you …

8. Come in for coffee?
me. Just a phrase, Invariably, we’ll have tea instead

9. Preparing to tackle something that one has been putting off…
me. I’ll have a nice cup of tea first…

10. Not forgetting, The morning cuppa!
me. Best cup of tea of the day 🙂

Not the first time I have written about tea!

As for teabags versus loose tea…a debate for another time ( a tea-time?)
