Kerouac on Tea

from Dharma Bums:

Now you understand the oriental passion for tea," said Japhy. "Remember that book I told you about the first sip is joy, the second is gladness, the third is serenity, the fourth is madness, and the fifth is ecstasy."

I just discovered your blog. What a treasure trove of intelligent writings on my favorite thing in the world. I'll be back!

P.S. I couldn't get through Eat, Pray, Love either. :-)
