Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take
less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”
“Nobody asked
your opinion,” said Alice.”
Lewis Carroll,
Alice in Wonderland


I shouldn’t think even millionaires could eat anything nicer than new bread and real butter and honey for tea.”

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.”
