Some Favorite Tea Quotes

Here are some of my favorite tea quotes. Feel free to contribute your own by leaving a comment! (Also, yet another flower photo. The flowers and greenery all came from my yard. You might notice the rain drops. These were picked shortly after a shower, last Saturday.)

I had some white tea that I wasn't particularly fond of so I brewed it and added just a tad of sugar and served it over ice. It turned out really quite refreshing as an iced tea! By the way, I'm buy a motorcyle on Tuesday! And the scooter is up for sale!
