The first cup moistens my lips and throat.
The second shatters my loneliness.
The third causes the wrongs of life to fade
gently from my recollection.
The fourth purifies my soul.
The fifth lifts me to the realms
of the unwinking gods."
~Chinese mystic, Tang Dynasty
Where are you on the list?
How many cups of tea have you sipped today?
Pictures taken in the window of the Camas Antique Mall.
Beautiful Russian teaware.
I love that for a few moments I can step into
this window and pretend I am sitting there having tea.
