Today’s miniature tea set is one that is one I should give to my mom for her ever growing bunny collection. One time, a long time ago, she saw a bunny she liked and you know how that is. Once someone finds something they like it becomes a collection. I don’t think she really intended it to become a collection but thanks to family it has.
The funny thing is that I am to blame for a lot of those bunnies multiplying in her house. Almost every time I visit I take a bunny (or two or three) and hide it somewhere. Sometimes it takes her months to find the elusive bunny and it always makes me giggle a bit when I get an email from her that says she found another one.
Of course she is blaming my sister and myself for the box of bunnies in her basement that is growing with every visit and says it is going to be up to us to take care of those. Which we will when the time comes but for now it is fun. Every time you see a bunny think of my mom, will you?
The effect of tea is cooling.
As a drink, it suits very well persons of self-restraint and good conduct.
When feeling hot, thirsty; depressed, suffering from headache,
eye-ache, fatigue of the four limbs, or paints in the joints,
One should drink tea only; four or five times.”
Lu Yu, Ch’a Ching, 780
