One of my favorite quote on tea of all times is from a gentlemen called Lu Tong, 盧仝 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lu_Tong).
His most famous writing are the Seven bowls, or the Song of tea.
The one I like however, is this one:
I have been trying to find the chinese original characters for it, but haven’t had any luck so far… my chinese is certainly not up to the task to research Tang dynasty poetsI am in no way interested in immortality, but only in the taste of tea
I could find the Chinese for the Song of tea, but nothing on the other quote. I am not even sure part of what writing it is, or if it is a lose attribution coming from somewhere else.
I would highly appreciate any help on the matter!
