Teatime Stops Us Being Slaves To Time?

Taking time for tea, or teatime, gives us the opportunity to stop and slow down, without guilt. I'm glad I grew up with such a custom. It gives you time to reflect and not be a slave to the frantic pace of live.
We often try to fit in too much in an allotted period of time and feel guilty if we sit down for a moment, but taking time for tea, or teatime makes us sit down, reflect and appreciate what is good in our lives.

-->Steam rises from a cup of tea
and we are wrapped in history,
inhaling ancient times and lands,
comfort of ages in our hands.
