A cup of tea, early in the morning .. on a weekend that dh makes for me…..maaaannnn it tastes so good when he makes it………..puts a big smile on my face…. he doesn’t drink tea or coffee so… we like to sit with the cool morning breeze caressing us gently…… talk leisurely about the week that went past, the day ahead and so on…….laze around…watch the birds through our balcony and the world go by……….the children still asleep….. me sipping the divine drink as he looks on …………. it happens only once a week .

On other days tho…….its a very different story………we ‘re all in a rush.

Unlike my hubby who is all bright and chirpy as soon as he steps down from the bed…..I am grouchy and sleepy for a while ……I sleepwalk into the kitchen ……When I get into the kitchen to get the breakfast ready, first thing I do is grab the box of Lipton tea bags.Its done in a ,automaton mode….make myself tea ……a flap on the little tea bag comes bearing the name of the product…….nothing else…… or so I thought until recently !

A few weeks back, I noticed the tea bag flaps have little riddles on them .

Today’s riddle was

Why did the boy throw out the butter through the window?

Answer: Because he wanted to see butterfly!

Bless the soul who came up with this cute idea ………coz these little riddles make me look forward to my cup of tea ……..makes me eagerly look for the day’s riddle…….. makes me break out into a big grin……..switches my little brain on to working mode……..share the little (kadi , as we say in tamil)joke with A.( he ”s collecting it all to share it with his friends and my mom)…and makes me cheerful for the rest of the day 😀 .

In short , they help start my day on a happy note !

Have you noticed these little riddles on your teabags ? do they have any?Lipton or other?People in the Gulf? US? other places?
