The Finest Tea!

There was a group of elderly gentlemen in Darjeeling who would meet to exchange news over a cup of tea. One of their diversions was to search for costly varieties of tea and create new blends that would delight the palate.

When it was the turn of the oldest member of the group to entertain the others, he served tea with the greatest ceremony, measuring out the leaves from a golden container. Everyone had the highest praise for the tea and demanded to know by what particular combination he had arrived at this exquisite blend.

The old man smiled and said simply, “My friends, the tea that you find so delightful is the one that is drunk by the peasants on my farm.”

The finest things in life are neither costly nor hard to find.

More often than not, food is tastier at a wayside inn than in a five star hotel. Home made biscuits and cakes taste better than those from a high end bakery!

Simple living and high thinking are the two important things to strive for!
