Tea Quotation Saturday




"As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There's a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother's pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, 'In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes.' "
- Aprilynne Pike, Illusions

How fun, love the quotes!

I find it really amusing how it seems that, invariably, no matter what is wrong, "there's a tea for that".

Teas and various herbal teas actually can deal with more things than you'd think. For example, in the case of a nuclear meltdown or fallout from an atomic bomb, drink rooibos--animal studies have shown that a single cup can protect from about 20-30% of damage caused by gamma rays. So maybe the Armageddon claim is not too far off.

Well, Alex, now *there's* a piece of tea trivia if I ever heard one. I can totally see this as a Final Jeopardy category someday:

Alex Trebek: "Our Final Jeopardy category tonight is 'Nuclear Entertaining' and the answer is:

'Studies having shown that a single cup can protect from about 20-30% of damage caused by gamma rays, it is the South African beverage you might serve at an Armageddon Tea Party.'

Players, you have 60 seconds."
