    I have sat in my backyard, on my favorite chair, on my bed and against warm sunshine with a steaming cup of tea. Just lately I discovered the tropical wine tea thanks to my recent trip to India. Loved the poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    i smiled reading this delightful encomium to tea.
    But H2O is the favorite mixed drink for me.

    To me it's an amazing ode to an invigorating cup of tea in its various sips and tastes. Thanks.
    But I've found my tea the very
    Safest tipple of them all!

    My tea in steam shall twine a
    Fragrant laurel round its rim.

    So many things can be written around a cup of tea!
