Eleonora commented on a post on Blogger.
Do you think the USA are so behind when it comes to tea education because of a lack of interest or? (I am from Europe but I have been living in the US for 8 years now, and I one day I had a conversation with an American and we shared our passion for tea, until I found out it meant "Iced Tea" to the person :O )

I think I haven't opened up this much about tea and how it resonates with me on a personal level. Maybe you'll relate somehow too, let me know if you do.

"The first cup moistens my lips and throat
The second cup breaks my loneliness
The third cup revives my heavy mind, sparking some five thousand tomes inside
The fourth cup makes me slightly perspire, flushing through the pores every bit of worry
The fifth cup purifies my flesh and bones
The sixth sends me to the sages immortal
The seventh cup could not be drunk, only the cool wind rises in my sleeves"

Thomas Jefferson's Letters on Liberty and Religion

"I never will, by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance, or admit the right of inquiry into the religious opinions of others. On the contrary, we are bound, you, I, and everyone, to make common cause, even with error itself, to maintain the common right of freedom of conscience. We ought with one heart and one hand hew down the daring and dangerous efforts of those who would seduce the public opinion to substitute itself into . . . tyranny over religious faith". -- Letter to Edward Dawse, 1803

Love this music
Are you craving a vacation yet? Let us take you on a musical journey to the high mountains of Tibet. Watch out for the trombone at the beginning, which reminds of the Tibetan dung-chen horn used to start important ceremonies. Then, sit back and enjoy the violins and woodwinds lead a rhythmic pattern. With the difficult conditions on the Tibetan plateau, Tibetans became known for their unshakable spirit. Do you feel their energy and vitality yet? #MusicMonday
