A Cup of Tea

"Meanwhile, let us have a cup of tea.  The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle.  Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things."

Thanks to Brandon for taking pictures of my Asian tea tray.
