Edmund Waller Quotes

    On Tea

    Venus her myrtle, Phoebus has her bays;
    Tea both excels, which she vouchsafes to praise.
    The best of Queens, and best of herbs, we owe
    To that bold nation, which the way did show
    To the fair region where the sun doth rise,
    Whose rich productions we so justly prize.
    The Muse's friend, tea does our fancy aid,
    Repress those vapors which the head invade,
    And keep the palace of the soul serene,
