Tea for Warm Memories

For most people, the word "tea" conjurs up the image of peaceful setting, one alone or with friends in a warm and cozy place. Likewise, "coffee" calls up the image of livlier, albeit sensory-filled atmosphere. The recent article in NYTimes by Judith Warner about the life's memorable moments (coffee for her) draws overwhelming responses by the readers. Comments after comments relate to warm sentiments of coffee or tea moments in their life. One can sense how dearly the role coffee or tea has imparted in the essense of humanity. The drinks are God's bountiful gifts--for us to share and savor those tender memories again and again.
