The hostess is preparing the black tea in a special way. All the foreigners are looking on with interest. Joe translates and explains what is going on. They watch as the hostess carefully pours hot water over all the cups, then rinses the tea. She strains the tea into the small pitcher, then pours it into the small cups. The humans must smell the tea, then sip it three times. The get used to the temperature, then let their taste buds savour the flavor, and finish the cup with full enjoyment. The cups are just too tiny for me! My tongue doesn't fit! After all, I am just a little dog! Posted by Picasa


  1. How wonderful it must be to go and experience the Chinese culture and to meet so many interesting people. My grandfather has been to China and he got to see the Great wall of China when he was there. I want to go there someday, but I will have to wait for now. I went to southern Mexico last month, and it stil amazes me how similar people are. I was raised to believe differently, but we really are the same. I have enjoyed your blog and look at it frequently. I enjoy reading about the Chinese customs especially. Hope you don't mind me dropping in and commenting. Best wishes.
