Thank You.

It is my greatest joy and gratitude, that I had received these gifts for my wedding.
I started planting this "Virtual seed" back in May 2006, to share my adventure in the passage for tea.
Through time, this tea blog has became fruitful with like-minded mandarins.

Even though we have never met face to face sharing the same cup of tea, tea has drawn us together as friends.
I guess this will be the future of communication for man kind.... but I still see the age old Chinese tradition of sharing a cup of good tea, or offering each other tea as a gesture of harmony and peace. The Chinese saying of "Through tea, friends gather" will have a new meaning in our times.

I and my new family, sincerely thank you, Lawrence, Andrew and Stephane for having me in your thoughts and sharing all these wonderful gifts which we all treasured. I am certain that one day, even we are all apart now; Will gather together to share this wonderful experience that became our life long pursuit.

Yours Truthfully and Respectfully,
Timothy, Jooyoung and Toki.

Congratulations! Now we have one more thing in common. Welcome to the married men club! :)

... and in 9 months+ maybe you'll even join the married with child(ren) club! Juggling tea and a baby, that's gongfu!

I am holding on the Honeymoon part, at least to enjoy for another 5 years.... "Just the 2 of us" for now.

Thank you all, my dear friends. I am hoping to see Marshain in NYC soon? And try to get him settle down maybe!? haha.

Hi Toki,

I learned so much from your blog as well as others. You are being appreciated! I also like Chinese / Taiwanese tea and Yixing teawares like yours but I am not tea-addict. I can stop drinking tea for weeks for medical reason (though always drink tea after lunch and supper everyday and I usually drink mineral or plain water while at work). In my opinion, maybe I am a Yixing addict, especially antique teapots. I am Vietnamese.

Anyway, I want to share with tou the passion of and self-appreciation in tranquility and tea fragance... Bye!

Thanks Tran! I will post more antique Yixings to share then. Cheers, T
