"Tea with us became more than an idealisation of the form of drinking; it is a religion of the art of life." Kakuzo Okakura
A serious tea drinker since autumn 2006, I started this blog so I would bore my friends less with endless tea-talk and my boundless enthusiasm for a new oolong. I’m making mili-steps into the world of Chinese tea but I am hampered by an unrefined palate and London water. I’ll post reviews of teas, tea shops and tea room I visit, and the tea books I have on my shelf.
I turned on the pillow with a little moan, and at this juncture Jeeves entered with the vital oolong. I clutched at it like a drowning man at a straw hat Right Ho, Jeeves - P.G. Wodehouse
