My sisters and I used to make fun of my Mom for being such a tea granny. However, as I reached my 30's, I found myself drinking tea. First at dinnertime. Then with every meal. And now at bedtime as well (although I drink Sleepytime tea at bedtime rather than orange pekoe). I, too, have become a tea granny, or at least a tea mommy. I find it so soothing. I also find it helps with digestion.
If you are a tea granny, you might be interested in George Orwell's essay "A Nice Cup of Tea" from the 1940's. It will come as no surprise that, like my great-grandmas, Orwell was English. Well, its tea time so I'd better go.
