“Tea is a cup of life”

"Tea is a cup of life” is a popular aphorism. Quiet Moments and a Cup of Tea: Charming Stories to Grace Your Day (2001) by Alice Gray contained the saying and credited an author:

“Great-grandma Jewel, a delightful lady who lived to the age of 108, told her friends that ‘tea is a cup of life.’”

I’m glad you’re all enjoying Chai...it’s a ritual around here that is deeply embedded into family life.
There’s a quote I love: “Tea is a cup of life” and another one by Thich Nhat Han “Drink your tea reverantly, as though it is the axis on which the earth turns”

6 October 2007, Palm Beach (FL) Daily News, “History of tea generates art collaboration” by Jan Sjostromn:
“A cup of tea is like a cup of life,” one participant writes.
