There is good reason that royalty was associated with the finer things in life. Kings and government meant taxes, and if gold couldn’t be had, your locality paid in other forms. If your locality was recognized for horses, you worked to contribute your best horses as a form of tax. The emperors of China were no different.

by Jason Walker on March 2, 2009

in 85-89, Chinese, green

Tea: Arbor Teas’ Mao Jian Price (as of posting): 2oz= $6.95 Score: 88 This one would make a good “office tea” because of its low astringency and bitterness when over-steeped.
