Tea, T, tee today is Jasmine Pearls. The first time that I drank a cup, I felt that my other teas just couldn’t compare. I believe that Lord George must have been drinking Jasmine Pearls when he spoke this line:
Tea! Thou soft, thou sober, sage, and venerable liquid, thou innocent pretence for bringing the wicked of both sexes together in a morning; thou female tongue-running, smile-smoothing, heart- opening, wink-tipping cordial, to whose glorious insipidity I owe the happiest moment of my life, let me fall prostrate thus, and … adore thee.
Lord George, in The Lady’s Last Stake, act 1, sc. 1. Lord George’s “happiest moment” was sipping tea in the company of Lady Gentle.
There you go…..
Happy Tea today, please join Kimmie and the rest for a cup of their favorite brew.
