It seems like they don't want anyone using their images outside of their content.
A link to the article works, but links to the image (the monk with the teapot) or inserting the image doesn't.

That's odd. I can see the photo of the monk in the post itself just fine.
FWIW, using MS Internet Explorer as my browser.

>5 tealadytoo: I think it is a decision made by the server software, that delivers the picture. The picture shows up at my home pc but not on the work pc.

Syrian Refugees In Lebanon

meet 4 yr old Mohamad, who is quoted: “If I had a super power, it would be to fly. I would tell other children from around the world to come and play with me and my sisters, and to drink tea together!”

A cup of tea is a hot, wet, aromatic Swiss army knife (Guardian)

How do teachers of English as a second language convey that ‘I’ll stick the kettle on’ means so much more?...

>9 John5918: That's a good read, John. Thanks very much for sharing it. The first line made me laugh out loud.

Actually, the rest of it reminds me of a book my study group once read, The Cup of Our Life.

Will Coronavirus end India’s tapri chai culture? (BBC)

Tea stalls are a staple meeting place for workers to vent, network and socialise. Can they survive?...

I really like Tinariwen's song about tea. Even better, their music video shows how to make it, Twareg-style: Iswegh Attay (I Drank some Tea). It's quite impressive!

And googling for "Ichrakat Askram" will give you lots of pictures of the tea caddy.
41022AA is a green Chinese tea very similar to the one in my cup right now!
But I'm putting a bit less sugar in it :-)

Thanks for posting.

1939 - British soldier takes tea to comrades working to repair banks of River Ravensbourne which flooded south London.

Very inefficient, but sweet.

Maybe inefficient, but I imagine the morale boost that probably came with, having cups and saucers and all, was probably worth it. :).

Heh, what a coincidence--I was just looking for a cover of a Cecil Beaton book and came across this photo by him:

>13 Dilara86:, >19 gmathis:

It shows very clearly the small glasses from which tea is drunk in various parts of the Arab world, including Sudan. I find the music soothing and relaxing. But assuming it is from north west Africa it also demonstrates how different the dialects there are from other parts of the Arab world. Iswegh Attay (I Drank some Tea) would be "sharabta shai" in Sudanese Arabic.

>19 gmathis: Glad you loved it!
>20 John5918: Tinariwen's band members come from Mali. They speak Tamasheq, which is only loosely related to Arabic (they're in different branches of the same language family). Am I right in guessing that "shai" means tea in Sudanese Arabic? It's interesting that the original hard "ch" sound softened to a "sh" sound... I like it!

>7 2wonderY: Thanks so much for that link with the wonderful little boy and his tea. I'm sure he generates a lot of donations.

>21 Dilara86:

Thanks for that explanation. Yes, shai is tea. In Kiswahili it is chai, and I think in India too. Sudanese Arabic has softened a number of the more guttural consonants, and to my ear sounds much nicer than, say, Egyptian Arabic.
