Dear my loving readers and visitors,

The above photo was taken at the Old Town, Shanghai. Both of us are teenage friends and we know each other since we were 11 years old. We went to the same primary and secondary school.

I chose this ancient shop because it is very meaningful to me. The mandarin character means "tea shop for famous people". It reminded me that tea was considered as luxury item in the past, the rich and famous people are able to access to it.

Thereafter, it has been planted and produce in mass scale that allow all walks of people to access to it. So, thanks to those who have initiated such a noble idea to spread the tea to more people. Similarly, this concept was later applied in automobile by Mr Ford, who had brought down the price of the car so as majority of people can afford to own it. This noble idea and action bring better life to more people. As such, we should do the same for the next generations of people the same
way we have been benefited from this planet.

Trust this inspire you and look forward to hearing from you,

James Oh

Yes, it's wonderful what so many countries have done by developing enough to make tea available to just about everyone. It's the true progress of mankind in that teacup. --Teaternity
