More Tea Bliss

I have one more teacup to share with you that I found at
The Guild Shop. 

Paragon Tea Cup

It is a Paragon cup.
My favorite color is green so you can guess that I love this cup.

Mosaic Paragon Tea Cup

I have some more quotes for you from TEA BLISS by Theresa Cheung.

"One should drink tea while appreciating the fragrance of the flowers, the brightness of the moon, the beauty of music. After drinking tea one will  no longer be in a daze but feel as frank and as open as heaven and earth." ~Seng-Jiao Ran (720-799), Chinese monk of the Tang Dynasty

"When you place a tea utensil, you should withdraw your hand as though it were a loved one you were leaving." ~ Sen Rikyu (1522-1591, Japanese Tea Master Who Perfected The Tea Ceremony

"Better to be deprived of food for three days than tea for one."
~Chinese proverb

"One should clean out a room in one's home and place only a tea table and chair in the room with some boiled water and a fragrant tea. Afterward, sit comfortably and allow one's spirit to become tranquil, light, and natural."
~Li Ri Hua (1368-1644), scholar during the Ming Dynasty

"While there's tea there's hope."
~Sir Arthur Wing Pinero (1855-1934). British actor, playwright, and essayist


Thanks to our tea party hostesses.
These are just a few of the tea parties in the Land of Blog.

Wishing YOU well and a wonderful cup of tea!

For a green loving person you couldn't get much better than this tea cup. There's something so fresh and clean about green and white. And I like the rose pattern.

Hello Snap, I'm catching up from being a little MIA from blog... Your teacup is beautiful!! Also really liked the other one from the earlier post .. paired with the blue tea pot. Your little bears are adorable, good for you to be ahead of the game...

Wishing you a blessed week ahead..xo HHL
