Tea Quotation Saturday

Tea lover and four-time British Prime Minister William Gladstone (1809-1898) is the author of 'Tea - The Cure All'. It is a very, very well known tea quotation. 

Tea - The Cure All
If you are cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.

I wish I knew where, when, and why he penned this; it sounds like he is defending tea and tea drinking.I hope that someday, in my readings and research, I will discover what compelled an influential, powerful politican to pen a little poem about tea.
