Tea. A gravitational force drawing confidants together to dispel worries and share wisdom. Five small minutes will brush away those ‘I’m fine’ and ‘everything’s ok’ defenses. The first sip will unravel the emotional knots. And a good friend will give you the strength to be honest and true to yourself. Tea and good company conquers all.
‘The Truth About Tea’ by Sarah Armstrong is the sixteenth short story in ‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 3’, published by Mother’s Milk Books.
