Friday Wisdom – Tea

I drink tea. I prefer it over coffee. I blame the church for my choice. When I was old enough to approach the coffee pot at church without being shooed away, I poured myself a cup of coffee and instantly hated it. Then I went to the tea pot, poured myself a cup and liked it. Years later I learned that the church just made bad coffee, but my tastes were set to tea by then. Later in life I married an English lady and we have more boxes of tea than bags of coffee in our house. So, while I sip my tea here is a bit of tea wisdom:

I once had a job in a tea shop, but I quit when I thought something was brewing.

There’s a trendy new tea shop in town. I don’t know – it fills me with uncertain tea.

I drink tea everyday to achieve inner tranquili-tea.

Tea fixes everything.

Did you hear that the hipster burned his mouth drinking tea? yup, he drank it before it was cool.

We have a special tea here in the desert for windy days. We call it dust-tea.

Okay, these jokes aren’t my best quali-tea.

When making your morning tea did you ever get that sense of deja brew?

Just went to the cafe and found out that the price of tea is steep.

I would walk a chamomile for a cup of tea.

Moses drinks tea – Hebrews it.

The most difficult tea to drink is reality.

  1. Though these are all good, my favorite part of this post is “Years later I learned that the church just made bad coffee.” Haha!

  2. I drink a couple of cups of coffee in the morning and then switch to tea for the rest of the day. I love tea. I love the different flavors that you can get it in and just plain ole’ tea and everything in between. About a year ago, I bought a sampler pack on amazon from a company called “Harney & Sons” in the USA. It was full of the most wonderful, flavorful tea I have ever experienced. I have since become a customer and order from the States even though I am here in Canada. It is so worth it. Even the decaf tea (which I like after supper) has lots of flavor – unlike those brands with the pretty boxes where the decaf tastes like dishwater. It is really good stuff and I highly recommend it. I like loose-leaf tea best. I enjoyed the jokes. Have a wonderful week! πŸ™‚

  3. It’s funny that church gave you your first taste of coffee – that’s where I tried my first cup of coffee as
    kid, too. Uh-oh. It looks as though churches are the gateway to caffeine addiction! (Although it didn’t work too well with me – I rarely drink coffee.)

    Loved your jokes, especially the hipster one. It almost made me snort my tea. πŸ˜‰

    Well, I think that the jokes are up to the usual qualitea. I prefer coffee, but I am trying to learn to like tea because my wife and daughter are continually drinking it, but only peppermint or Earl Grey That I cannot stand. Did you know that Tibetans drink their tea with a knob of butter?

    Mostly coffee here. Tea on occasion, usually herbal. Uncertain tea and reali-ty are high on my list these days.

    Uncertain tea (shudder). Love the church story origin of your love of tea. As much as I prefer coffee, your own preference makes perfect sense. Whoever went to church and said afterward, “great coffee!”?

    • Well, at my last church the “real” coffee drinkers went somewhere else for their after church coffee. Here in Reno, there’s a wonderful coffee shop right across from the church that makes an outstanding cafe mocha. Yup, I go out the front door and right across the street to contemplate the sermon over a nice cup.
