TEA : Serving the people

Dear my loving visitors,

The above bamboo slip, prefaced of the four Chinese Characters, of which I bought it at Jiangsu Water-town Zhouzhuang. The above Chinese calligraphy means "serving the people". The simple yet rich in content was advocated by Mr. Sun Yat-sen. I must admit that I have indebted to him because he had an great and significant impact on my life. I also strongly believe that lots of people have been inspiring by him as well. He is also one of key figures who had contributed significantly in bringing back to China its former glory.

This piece will be added to my future tea corner.

I find the above bamboo slip has a very meaningful and close relationship with this blog. This is because tea is well fitted into this context. Tea has a great impact on people's lives and bring lots of benefits to the people through its multi-function roles in the world. It has been serving people for more than 5,000 years, in the form of beverage, currency, herb, medical, art and culture.

Through tea, it also helps to cement relationship amongst the human beings.
In this connection, its indirect function as preserving peace and harmony cannot be ignored. Therefore, we can not ignore its social status as peace keeper. As such, i do hope you will continuously giving your support to this blog so as to educate people to cultivate this healthy hobby at the same time promote peace through it.

You can be rest assured that it will also enriching our life through an healthy hobby as the same time promote the spirit sharing spirit as a way to maintain peace and harmony to human mankind.

Through this healthy hobby, one learn to be clam and patient. By doing so, a lots of dispute can be settled through tea rather bullets and bombs.

By now, Trust you will be able to see these intangible benefits that brought through tea and give it a recognition as its well deserved.

Thanks for your time and look forward to hearing from you again,

James Oh
