Very clever. You are brilliant at this sort of thing.

Dorte - This is both intriguing and fun! You've made a terrific start here, and I really want to know what happens next : ).

Kelly sagde ...

Clever indeed! One of my favorite topics, too! (tea, not murder)

I look forward to the next installment.

I am wild about Harney and Son teas. And this, of course.

Tracy: I thought that now you were up and about, I´d better do something to keep you happy :D

Margot: thank you. And now I could tease you with the Danish version, but of course I won´t do that.

Kelly: I prefer coffe (or beer, to be honest), but when I write, I try to be more British than the British :D

Patti: great that you appreciate my ´Golden Age Pastiche´; it took me embarrassingly long to write it.

Lovely! I particularly like the name of the Chinese ambassador, but it is the first of the two young hussars to which I am rather partial. Twice a day, in fact!

Dorte H sagde ...

Maxine: thank you. I am not sure I can say I am partial to any tea, but please don´t give me Medova! I cannot stomach that.

Now I've read the whole story, albeit it backwards. Very interesting use of varieties of teas. Good job.

Sandra: I have tried to make it clearer now that there is a part I one should read first.
