Tea tales

A woman is like a tea bag. It's only when she's in hot water that you realize how strong she is.
Nancy Reagan


This quote has also been attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt - but in any case, it's a great one, which makes me smile! It always makes me think of how the british brew tea in the midst of all tragedies and emergencies and as a cure all! Which is why I like the woman in my user pic, a munition worker in in ww2, who neverthless was able to enjoy a laugh along with her nice cup of tea!!

See all my tea tales here, being posted retrospectively to fill some lj gaps!
