This is a story about a ritual. A Chinese tea ceremony. It's used as a means to connect. Connect with the past, with people, with another land. Joshua Drake Wu invited me into his home to experience the joy of Chinese tea. I learned a lot of surprising things about tea, hospitality, and my neighbor. Make yourself a cup of your favorite leaf and listen.
