Tea
 
  To warm without heating, to cheer but not inebriate.
Bishop Berkeley.    
  1
  And sip with nymphs their elemental tea.
Pope.    
  2
        Matrons, who toss the cup, and see
The grounds of fate in grounds of tea.
Churchill.    
  3
                    Tea does our fancy aid,
Repress those vapours which the head invade
And keeps that palace of the soul serene.
Edmund Waller.    
  4
  The ship from Ceylon, Inde, or far Cathay, unloads for him the fragrant produce of each trip.
Byron.    
  5
  Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea? how did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea.
Sydney Smith.    
  6
        Here, thou, great Anna! whom three realms obey,
Dost sometimes counsel take—and sometimes tea.
Pope.    
  7
        The gentle fair on nervous tea relies,
Whilst gay good-nature sparkles in her eyes;
An inoffensive scandal fluttering round,
Too rough to tickle, and too light to wound.
Crabbe.    
  8
  Tea! thou soft, thou sober, sage, and venerable liquid;—thou female tongue—running smile-smoothing, heart-opening, wink-tippling cordial, to whose glorious insipidity I owe the happiest moment of my life, let me fall prostrate.
Colley Cibber.    
  9
  Indeed, Madam, your ladyship is very sparing of year tea: I protest the last I took was no more than water bewitched.
Swift.    
  10
  And afterwards I did send for a cup of tee (a China drink), of which I never had drunk before.
Pepys.    
  11
