20 Best Tea Quotes

| On 09, Jun 2013

Our favorite thing to do on a Sunday is drink tea and read good words by amazing people. We’re sure that you feel the same way, so we have prepared 20 tea quotes from people who enjoy it as much as you do.


Tea brings people together in ways that you couldn’t imagine and its magic is something that is hard to describe in words. Some have tried to capture its essence, some have almost succeeded. For each individual the ceremony of tea is personal and cannot be duplicated.


However, there is a bond between tea drinkers all around the world, no matter what decade they were born in, what nationality or personal beliefs. We speak the same language and empathize with each other. We know you’re going to find meaning in the quotes that follow and make them your own, somehow.


We love people who drink tea and the ones who promote it. So here are our favorite quotes on the matter. Let’s say, they’re exactly our cup of tea!
