Thanks to Maggie B. for this Tuesday tea tune recommendation! I'm loving the old-school, dawn-of-disco soul groove this woman's got going on. I love her voice, too, though I'm mystified by how she's using tea as a metaphor. The lyrics build a definite message of personal freedom — "I can't fit inside that box that you put me in" and "Let me keep my right to do it my way" — before hitting this chorus (as best I can make out):
You tried that, now give it back
’cause this is the tea for me
C'mon and just let us be free
Readers, any suggestions as to what Choklate means by that?
