The time of tea

Steam rises from a cup of tea
and we are wrapped in history,
inhaling ancient times and lands,
comfort of ages in our hands.

This image is a traditional tea village house in the tea region of Hangzhou, with history back to East Jin Dynasty (317-420), some 1,800 years ago.   Now, this part of village has turned into a luxury resort known as “Amanfayun”.

Amanfayun, Hanzhou, China
