America – put down your laptops and cellphones and go enjoy a nice cup of tea. (after you read this, of course)

The true spirit of tea is one of generosity, where sharing and growth happen without the need for any kind of reimbursement.

May you drink of it fully and progress in your understanding of tea. – The-Leaf.org
