Tea Readings: I'd like a word with you!

As you know, one of my favourite pastimes is reading. It just goes so well with tea! I drink a lot of tea and therefore read a lot of books! Since January, I've read over a dozen books already. To read as many books as I possibly can in a year is one of my New Year's Resolutions. It just kinda happened.

I still manage to make time to read news articles, poems, and even quotes. Did you know there are so many quotes by all kinds of people on tea? I knew about this for a while and even tweet the occasional quote I find interesting. I thought I'd share some of my favourite tea quotes with you. Now, some quotes have not been proven to be provided by the person credited for it, but they’re still good. So, grab yourself a cuppa whatever tea and enjoy the list!
