40 Tea Quotes Every Tea Lover Can Relate To

40 tea quotes every tea lover can relate to

It’s hard to imagine my life without tea (and to be honest, I don’t want to). Tea’s natural earthiness roots me in reality. It keeps me grounded in moments of peace and calm. For me, tea is a liquid stress ball. When I allow its lightness to wash over me, I feel free and unrestrained.

Although I mention tea a lot on the blog, I still find it hard to describe just how much I love this drink in words. Enter these tea quotes. Some of these tea quotes are light-hearted and others are deeply profound. Most of these tea quotes are by authors I love, but they all capture tea in a soft light.

Without further ado, here are forty tea quotes every tea lover can relate to.
