Tea Quotes

There are countless quotes from famous literary stories that involve tea. Whether it's C.W. Lewis' well known Alice in Wonderland where the Mad Hatter hosts his idea of what a tea time party is or Milne's gentler Winnie the Pooh's tea party, there are certainly enough quotes from a variety of well known pieces of literature that have something to say about "tea time."  Here are just a few: from J.K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter is the quote, "Harry found the [tea]... seemed to burn away a little of the fear fluttering in his chest." One from the another famous author C.S. Lewis' is "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. " A quote from A.A. Milne is, "A Proper Tea is much nicer than a Very Nearly Tea, which is one you forget about afterwards." No matter who the author is or the time period, tea seems to be an essential element in famous literary circles.

We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.
~Rudyard Kipling
