Well, baby, it sure wasn't cold outside at the beautiful tea house in Shanghai in July of 2013. It was at least 95 degrees Fahrenheit. But jumping ahead to January, 2014, it is a wonderful day to fix yourself a cup of tea, sit in your favorite chair and pick up that book you have been trying to get back to.
We sat down to a tasty and educational tea ceremony/demonstration in a lovely Shanghai tea house. I spent my time at the table tasting 7 teas, taking notes on the various properties of teas and painting the tea host.
p.s. If you know where to buy Lychee Black Tea, let me know. A cold winter night is a great time for a cup of tea and "for romance", according to my notes!
