Exasperated tried preparing the same but I am out of tea leaves, tea bags , gas everything. Suddenly I am in a strange land. I am running like idiots and I saw a ray of hope, a gorgeous brown as a berry tea lying queenly in a white Bon China cup and I lift it up to have a slurp but wait , What ??? It suddenly vanished out of my hand and I am left with nothing but an empty mug. I shrieked loudly, ” Oh tea AAAA AAAA “.And I woke up. What a scary dream. Proceeded directly towards the kitchen and carefully checked out the tea supplies. Everything there. A sigh of relief!
