Tea Quotes and Sayings

Postby Peacock » Nov 24th, '10, 02:07

Just wanted to share this nice compilation of tea quotes. :)

My favorite, "The first cup moistens my lips and throat. The second cup breaks my loneliness. The third cup searches my barren entrail but to find therein some thousand volumes of odd ideographs. The fourth cup raises a slight perspiration - all the wrongs of life pass out through my pores. At the fifth cup I am purified. The sixth cup calls me to the realms of the immortals. The seventh cup - ah, but I could take no more! I only feel the breath of the cool wind that raises in my sleeves. Where is Elysium? Let me ride on this sweet breeze and waft away thither." ~Lu Tung

three great evils that beset the land: "the spoiling of gallant youths through bad education; The misjudgment of fine art by bad critics and the waste of fine tea by improper brewing."~ Li Chi Lai.

Coincidentally enough, I happened on that site just a week ago.

Find yourself a cup of tea; the teapot is behind you. Now tell me about hundreds of things. ~Saki


^ Has a wonderful ring to it.
