MASTERS OF CEREMONY - “A cup of tea isn’t merely a drink; It’s the history of the world itself…Before set, before oil, before cars or guns or Coca-Cola, there was tea - one of civilization’s first truly global commodities as well as one of its most enduring and beloved.” ~ Heidi Johannsen Stewart - photographs by Anna Williams - prop styling by Amy Wilson (full story CN Traveler January 2015)
