It’s Tea o’clock…

If I say I like tea, that would be an understatement. I absolutely love tea and this post is about why I love it so much.

I was a small school going girl. As both my parents were working, mornings were the busiest time of the day. Our breakfast would usually be a glass of milk while tying shoe laces and a roll of parantha in hands on our way to school. We would take lunch separately in our respective friend circle. For dinner, like any other Indian mom, my mother would serve hot meal to us first and later she would eat. In nutshell none of our meals were together. We would never sit together as a family for any of our meals but for evening tea. Evening tea time would be the time when all four of us (mom, dad, brother and me) would sit down and discuss our day, we would crack jokes, tease each other. For me it was the happiest time of day. I love tea not just for the taste of it (which is Awesome) but more for its social aspect. So when I say I am craving tea maybe I’m actually craving for those happy memories.

So I am a night owl specially when it comes to studies… I used to do combined studies with my friend for exams and we would study whole night before exam (our only preparation for exam)…. obviously this needed superhuman skills or something to keep us awake and TEA would come to our rescue… we would have multiple cups to remain alert… and when one of us would go in kitchen to prepare tea other one would get short nap… and in the morning when we finally got up to go for exam our bedside would have at least 12 empty cups. Among many other factors to which I owe my grades, Tea is definitely the most important one (I promise I got really good grades). Many such happy memories pop up when I think of tea.
