A charming tea story

Evening starts early in winter. As the day goes from cold and grey to dark, we long for the warmth of  a cup of tea and a Christmas cookie! These long winter nights were traditionally spent telling stories around the fire in the chimney. We may still feel this quiet atmosphere when we light a few candles. This would be a perfect time to read my short story "Emperor Fei's Dream of Tea". Here is the feedback I received about it from Marian in NYC a couple of days ago:

"What a charming story! It is laced with so many picturesque and delightful images, and that you were able to seamlessly integrate such a quantity and variety of information about tea is a testimony to your skill as a storyteller. I started to read the story before I left for a class this evening and the first thing I did when I got home was to resume reading it. Both the images and story line are so appealing- I wanted to indulge my imagination as soon as I stepped inside the door! You are a wonderful writer and I hope you will continue to explore that outlet."
Thank you for your feedback, Marian. It warms my heart to know that you've enjoyed my tale.
