So often in life, love and beauty are coupled with sorrow and heartache. One of ancient China’s foremost poets, Tu-Fu, who lived from 712 –770 A.D. wrote extensively on the subject of life, sadness and the longevity of love. One of his poems in particular titled Alone in her Beauty highlights his thoughts on the subject. The poem, which served as the inspiration for this tea, is a love sonnet to a beautiful maiden from a smitten suitor. The suitor cares deeply for the maiden but feels that his love isn’t enough for her given a recent family tragedy.
