"The colour of the brew is rich and dark with mystery. The first flavour is peppery, but that fades to divine sweetness. The history of my people shimmers in my bones. With every sip, it's as if I'm wordlessly reciting my lineage. I'm at once merged with my ancestors and with those who'll come after me. I grew up believing that rice was to nourish and the tea was to heal. Now I understand the tea is also to connect and to dream. The seduction is deeper and more profound than could happen with any man." - Li Yan
