A Cup of Tea – by The Book

Why not consecrate ourselves to the queen of the Camelias, and revel in the warm stream of sympathy that flows from her altar? In the liquid amber within the ivory porcelain, the initiated may touch the sweet reticence of Confucius, the piquancy of Lao tsu, and the ethereal aroma of Buddha himself.

From The Book of Tea, by Kakuzo Okakura.
