"T" for "Tea"

A cuppa filled with love till the brim

A cuppa which lifts your spirits and clears your head

A cuppa which almost erases the bad vibes

A cuppa which makes one dance and sing



To start a day with out this cuppa is tough

If I miss the morning cuppa my day gets rough

In the absence of this cuppa which energizes me I can't do any task

With just one cuppa I get up and smile and in the morning glory I bask!



As the day goes by, the office hours create a lull and I become dull

This cuppa comes like a savior and activates my brain cells and I mull

Over this one cuppa we have hundreds of conversations

The chit-chat never ends and never ending are the interactions!

When I have to discuss serious issues this cuppa comes to rescue

This cuppa is my sincere friend when ever I feel blue

The whiff of this elixir brings an instant smile on my lips

The hot smoke emanating from the cup gives my headache a miss!



This divine cup of hot soothing tea makes my mornings energetic and bright

A sleepy, groggy me wakes up to its aroma and takes a colorful flight

Again in the evening when I am bored or tried a high-tea is just what I need

A single sip of the heavenly tea makes me come out of the shackles and I am freed!




The Chai as we call it in India is the gateway to many relationships

A chai & sutta (smoke) break gives the friends a reason to sneak out from office

The one who doesn't drink chai is for sure missing some thing in life

For chai gives you energy to bear the routine and day to day strife!

Tea originated in China as a medical drink. This aromatic beverage is obtained from leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis . After water tea is the highest consumed liquid in the world. It has a cooling effect and an astringent taste which is relieving. There are hundreds of variations of tea as per the taste of each individual/ region / country. Tea has many health benefits too. Green tea may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer, promote oral health, reduce blood pressure, help with weight control, improve antibacterial and antivirasic activity, provide protection from solar ultraviolet light and increase bone mineral density. Green tea is also said to have "anti-fibrotic properties, and neuroprotective power. For more go to wiki

Have a cup of tea and have a great day :-)

  10. I too am in the A to Z challenge. I didn't realize this was our 20th post! I enjoy a good cuppa. Like you, it punctuates different aspects of my day, acting as respite, comfort, friend, confidant and more. Very creative of you to use poetry to blog about "T." Great double entendre as well.

    Mornings, my parents drank coffee, and when I grew up so did I but I like tea better! Thank you for reminding me how much of a friend tea is to me!

  16. One of the things I love about Pinterest is my Board I named The English Tea Party. Beautiful china, tea recipes,many lovely things. I subscribe to a magazine called Tea Time. Of course, here in the South I drink sweet tea. Memories of my mother bring tea on a tray remain today. Glad I stopped by during the #Challenge to have a cup with you.

  23. In America, coffee is the thing, but I HATE coffee! We also drink iced tea, the sweeter, the better! Not very many people drink hot tea, but I enjoy it. I drink English breakfast tea (sweetened) in the mornings, mostly just in the winter. I am more of a Diet Coke kind of girl!
