The Ephemeral Life of a Cup of Tea
It’s a chilly February afternoon. A college student with a terrible head cold makes the decision to purchase a cup of tea before class. The decision doesn’t seem to posit high stakes. Worst that could go wrong is she walks in a minute or two late for class. Right? Wrong. The story that unfolds is gripping and heartbreaking. In a brief ten images, “The Ephemeral Life of a Cup of Tea” captures the uselessness of Starbucks spill blockers, the importance of using the restroom prior to purchasing a beverage of any kind, and most of all the fleeting nature of life when you’re a cup of Wild Sweet Orange Tazo Tea. Life is short enough as is, tea drinkers. Let’s do our best not to make it any shorter.
