My cup of tea

25 Nov

My cup of tea.

The kickstart to my mornings. With one cup in the morning for an instant burst of alertness for the mind and body. Without tea my brain doesn’t recover from inadequate sleep nor does it let me leave the house without a feeling of constant regret of not sipping the simmering cup.

My friends seem unmoved by my constant complains of how my morning just isn’t right. That something is missing. Something that completes my day. It’s funny how some very little and insignificant things actually add to the quality of our lives. My chai ka cup helps me through a lot of things.

It’s with me when I’m stressed about my exams. When I need to stay up late to learn the driest chapter in Economics or solving one past paper after another. It’s the driving force that takes me forward. Its my companion  at the time of need, when everyone’s asleep and I’m surrounded by alien concepts and theorems.

My tea is with me when I’m happy. When my family sits together in the evening for a special ‘chai session’ along with something sweet during our family time. Those conversations wouldn’t have been complete without my cup of tea.

It was there at the beach when I watched the sunset with my mother. What a memorable day that was! Eating away the spicy ‘pappar’ we shared a moment full of laughter and love.  Truly timeless.

Here’s to my constant companion for all seasons and all times.

    Tea and coffee actually moves me 🙂 A cup of tea and a piece of black forest cake, that makes my perfect breakfast! And by the way, are you majoring in Economics?

    Hey I love the evening family tea. It seldom happens due to my work hours and my parents work hours but it is really good when it does. The cup in the picture makes me wanna have tea right now lol.

      Having tea with family may seem such an insignificant thing yet its soo much more. I wish you more tea times with your family! 😀
