November 3rd

Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. It is essentially a worship of the Imperfect, as it is a tender attempt to accomplish something possible in this impossible thing we know as life. Okukura.

    no wonder they ahve courses in japan on tea, someone i know studied tea for a whole year there and didn’t even get near pouring or making a tea, just the build up to it took a year!

      And then there is the journey. the yaks that have sacrificed their lives to bring the tea over high mountain passes. Tea , as the Chinese will tell you, can elevate the sould , but can bring a country down too if you are not careful.

    Tea..the most sociable of drinks..”would you like a cup of tea” a friendly question. A fine teapot and delicate cups..a conversation with friends.

    When we were young we used to visit an elderly couple in the afternoon and the husband (Mr Mooney)would make the tea, warming our cups and twirling the teapot to help the tea draw serving us scotch fingers..they are long gone but the tea ceremony of a kind is remembered.

      i totally agree. there were thousands of tea quotes too that i could have chosen from. seems like tea speaks through a lot of people. Love a quote with scotch fingers in it too. thanks

    That tea looks like shit.

    It looks like Coffee Tea. Bruce.?

    yucky tea.

    • joggle Says:

      I think it is shit actually. I thought it tasted funny when they served it to me . ha ha .
      Joking. Its Tiobetan black tea. Brick tea grown in yunnan and lugged by yaks accross high mountain passes, aging it further and makeing it even stronger and blacker. I will orsder some and it will be part of your tea appreticship thi summer.

    When i was little our neighbour poured hot tea on my foot. I still have the scar shaped like a cross. It’s not always tea with friends, it can be dangerous.

    • joggle Says:

      Maybe this was the work of jesus – the sign of the cross. Maybe your foot will become a pilgrimage site. Better be careful what you write on this site – this is the internet and this blog is getting more than a hundred hits a day . your comment is also a very useful warning about the hot quality of tea. Thanks
