A Chinese world

Very beautiful as we got farther, a Chinese world, painted in tea. Tea-colour, the dead world under a thin coverlet of snow; tea-colour the branches; and tea-colour my dog also, and the leaves of the holly pale jade. —My Sister and Myself: The Diaries of J.R. Ackerley, 4 March 1949
