    I am happy to find your site. I do include quotes in most of tea blog page. For me the quotes sort of set the mood and direction of the blog. I try to hold true to this but unsure since I have no readers. I do things for myself with no credit.

    My favorite tea book for quotes is: Tea Wisdom by Aaron Fisher; it is inspirational quotes and quips about the world’s most celebrated beverage.
