Needless to say, TEA. Definitely.
Because tea is surely
manna from heaven. A hot cuppa is not only a refreshing drink, but a
stress buster, a handy home remedy and one of the few all-natural
beverages that contain no sodium, fat, carbonates or sugar – and of
course, no calories.
Moreover, tea is totally
natural. Nothing is added to the leaf between the moment it is
plucked to the moment it lands in your grocery cart. From the tea
bush to the tea cup, tea is free of additives, free of colorants,
free of preservatives.
Whereas coffee is for
those in a rush, tea is for those who wish for something to savor,
something cleansing and good for health and above all something
which helps slow down.
“The first cup, moistens
my lips and throat.
The second shatters
The third causes the
of life to fade gently
from my recollection.
The fourth purifies my
The fifth lifts me to the realms
Of the un-winking gods”
- Chinese mystic during
the Tang Dynasty
