Today I started with a White Peony, my old standby favorite. Now I am sipping an oolong Tung Ting, great grassy note with a long finish. I am going to play with the kong fu style of preparation, still learning. Hope to become a tea master in the future, I love this culture. Great quote from the "Book of Tea", "the greatest pleasure he knew was to do a good action by stealth, and to have it found out by accident. For Teaism is the art of concealing beauty that you my discover it, of suggesting what you dare not reveal. It is the noble secret of laughing at yourself, calmly yet thoroughly, and is thus humour itself,- the smile of philosophy." Charles Lamb.
New tea dessert, Bakla Bites went over well. Hat day tomorrow, dress up and put on my Fedora. Some neat pictures from a follower this past weekend. May the love of tea drive on.
