Monday's Tea Quote

I pluck the petals that are wet with dew,
and drink my solitary cup with quiet.
When it is empty, pour myself another,
The Sun goes down and all of nature rests.
~T'ao Ch'ien, China 400CE

Today I start a new Monday series, Monday's Tea Quote.
I hope you enjoy them as we travel with tea through 2018.
Raising my cup to you dear friends, Marilyn

Oh, I look forward to seeing your Monday tea quotes, Marilyn. And that tea cup and saucer is so pretty. Do you know that blue tea cups are the pretties to me. Not sure why, but even my wedding china was blue. Are you having a good new year so far?
