I imagined a culture such
as ours back in the Edwardian times when Orientalism and tea was really
popular that traditional Chinese Dragons would be both the mascots and
guardians of teas production and consumption. I also imagined that the
Tea Dragons would be a ladies best friend, keeping the tea warm once
poured, guarding a ladies secrets from gossipers, transferring messages
to lovers and providing companionship.
