Fun reading. All of the stories are quick and light. It was great to tackle with a couple of pots of tea; but it was also great for filling random 5 minute intervals. I think "The worst tea ever" was my favorite story, it touched on my personality.

The one thing that concerns me is the number of short stories about tea drinkers with Alzheimer's. Should there be a study to find out if tea is contributing to that?

Cute book. Some of the stories are very heartwarming, especially the one about a woman who meets her future husband over a cup of tea. His proposal was so touching!

This book is very faithful to the Chicken Soup line of books. Some of the stories are almost saccharine-ly sweet. As much as I enjoyed all the discussion of tea, I'm glad the book was short!

“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.”

This book was rather interesting in some regards. It made me laugh and smile, as well as bore me to tears. Most of the time, I smiled at how adorable some situations were or contemplated what was said over a steaming cup of tea.

Regardless I enjoyed this. Not thoroughly, but well enough that it deserves three stars.


I enjoyed this, but I'm not going to read it again. This is more like a once and done read. Those who enjoy a good spot of tea- read it. You'll get plenty of laughs out of t

I'm a book snob and not one for self-help or "one from the heart" type of books, but as a tea drinker, I figured I'd give this one a shot. The stories were all sweet--a page or two of people's memories of tea drinking. They were ok but what I really enjoyed was the bits of tea lore and facts scattered among the pages.

Wonderful little book full of wonderful stories. But what I really like about this book in the Chicken Soup series is all the interesting info about tea! Who knew tea was so fascinating? And oh, yeah, my story's in it. And it's a good story, too!
