“… let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboo, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.”
— Kakuzo Okakura, 1906, The Book of Tea

The first hot night:
chilling the tea
