Oh, it took me some time. And as someone who could take or leave hot drinks, I’ve probably had hundreds and hundreds of offers before I finally succumbed. I couldn’t quite understand how a cup of tea could be the prescription that soothed all sorts of emotional and physical ailments. I know Americans love their coffee, but the love that the Brits have for their tea doesn’t compare. Coffee doesn’t FIX things. Not like tea.
Balancing out or complementing things like a hearty meal, a good sob, a nasty cold, a chilly day, a stressful day, a relaxing day, the best day ever, a household fire, sitting by the fire, childbirth, and unimaginable grief.
But after 9 years, I think I’m finally starting to get it.
