Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. ~Thich Nat Hahn

My present this year from Rob is a beautiful tetsubin teapot, a gorgeous green, emblazoned with a dragon fly. It rests on a stand with a tea light underneath, that keeps the tea a perfect temperature.

The cups are little works of art, a nice weight in the hand. The cast iron warmed by the tea inside.

The gift was complemented with two kinds of tea - a delicately flavoured white, and a black tea with orange. Perfect for contemplation on a winter's night.

Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.
