The first cup moistens my lips and throat. The second shatters my loneliness. The third causes the wrongs of life to fade gently from my recollection. The fourth purifies my soul. The fifth lifts me to the realms of the unwinking gods  – Chinese Mystic, Tang Dynasty

Need coffee!

Posted on

“It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.”

– Dave Barry (American author and columnist)

Tea time…

Posted on

Time for you and time for me,

And time yet for a hundred indecisions, And for a hundred visions and revisions,

Before the taking of toast and tea

 – T.S. Eliot

Did you know that George Washington invented instant coffee? No – not that George Washington. The one I’m talking about was a Belgian man living in Guatemala in 1906!

Studies have shown that hot chocolate may be good for the brain, especially as we grow older. It can increase the flow of blood to the brain, which provides increased energy, leading to improved cognitive ability. It is important that you select your brand carefully – it is the cocoa that helps, not all the artificial flavours and sugars.

If you are cold, tea will warm you; If you are too heated, it will cool you; If you are depressed, it will cheer you; If you are exhausted, it will calm you.
