It’s no sur­prise that so many of us switch the ket­tle on at the first sign of trou­ble — keep calm and drink tea! In fact, that’s how this book came about. Af­ter a par­tic­u­larly stress­ful week, ed­i­tor Anouska Jones was sit­ting at home with her hus­band com­plain­ing about ev­ery­thing that had gone wrong. As he put their teapot and two mugs down on the table, her hus­band com­mented, ‘Cheer up! You can’t be mis­er­able when you’ve got a bright red teapot in front of you!’ The very next morn­ing, Anouska started re­search­ing quotes about tea and be­fore long she had a col­lec­tion of me­morable quo­ta­tions from rock stars (Mick Jag­ger, Rod Ste­wart), Bud­dhist monks (Thich Nat Hahn), politi­cians (Abra­ham Lin­coln, Wil­liam Glad­stone), ac­tors (Au­drey Hep­burn, Billy Con­nolly), ad­ven­tur­ers (Bear Grylls) and more. It seems tea’s ap­peal is truly uni­ver­sal! It’s hoped that the re­sult­ing book of quotes and ac­com­pa­ny­ing pho­to­graphs brings you the same plea­sure as a per­fectly brewed cup of your own par­tic­u­lar favourite.
