Another tea cup that I found at the Guild Shop.
I've paired the new tea cup with another Price&Kensington tea pot
that I found at T.J. Maxx. I should have purchased one
in every color that Maxx had,
but I kept telling myself I had enough tea pots!
But it is fun to pair them up with a tea cup to make a pretty tea for one.
The bottom of the tea cup reads:
A Crownford Product
English Bone China
A few more quotes from Tea Bliss by Theresa Cheung:
"The best state of mind in which to drink tea is one of deep meditation. The second best is while looking at a beautiful landscape or listening to music. The third best is during stimulating conversation. In all cases it is necessary to aspire towards a quiet and tranquil frame of mind."
~Paichang (729-814), Chinese Ch'an (Zen) master
"You can taste and feel, but not describe, the exquisite state of repose produced by tea, that precious drink, which drives away the five causes of sorrow."
~Ch'ien Lung (1710-1789), Chinese emperor
"If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, it will cool you; if you are depressed, it will cheer you; if you are excited, it will calm you."
"I hope next time when we meet, we won't be fighting each other. Instead we will be drinking tea together."
~Jackie Chan, Rumble in the Bronx
"(I am) a hardened and shameless tea drinker, who for twenty years diluted his meals with only the infusion of the fascinating plant; who with tea amused the evening, with tea solaced the midnight, and with tea welcomed the morning."
~Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), English writer
