Gary Snyder
“There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, they drink tea.”
Gary Snyder

William Ewart Gladstone
“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.”
William Ewart Gladstone

Lin Yutang
“There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation of life.”
Lin Yutang, The Importance of Living

Kakuzō Okakura
“Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. It inculcates purity and harmony, the mystery of mutual charity, the romanticism of the social order. It is essentially a worship of the Imperfect, as it is a tender attempt to accomplish something possible in this impossible thing we know as life.”
Kakuzo Okakura, The Book of Tea

Sydney Smith
“Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea! How did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea.”
Sydney Smith, A memoir of the Rev. Sydney Smith
