Reasons/Occasions for Tea

Does one really need a reason / occasion for having tea ? Not in my book. In my book, any time is tea time. Tea does, however, form a backdrop for many things in your life. Here are just some of them:

1. Celebration—cake and tea

tea and muffins


2. Stress relief — to soothe frazzled nerves

3. Stimulation– to boost mental faculties during work or studying

4. Consideration– “offering tea and sympathy”

5. Socializing– “let’s meet over a cup of tea”

6. Business–‘ finalise the deal over a cup of tea”

7. Tradition — English afternoon tea, Japanese tea drinking ceremony.

  1. Though I’m a coffee person, I think above reasons apply to coffee as well. Oh wait…except the Japanese tea drinking ceremony one coz you cannot mess with traditions.😁
    Who needs reasons anyways? If you feel like having it, just pour a cup and have it!😉

  2. Plus as a panacea for all ills! I’m more of a coffee person but always have a cup of tea (black, no milk) mid-afternoon. I also enjoy unsugared iced tea.
