    Have been thinking of an alternate history for tea. What if Anna Maria Russell and Robert Fortune were actually lovers? Maybe Robert was sent to China as more of a banishment because of his liason that worked out well for the East India Company?

    Okay, I know he’s 30 years older than her, but still, with a some creative license, we might be ready for something like this. After all, @lazyliteratus recently spun a yarn with Robert being seduced by a dragon-riding, 800-year-old sensual temptress. Found an awesome series of photos at a stock photo site that would do well to illustrate it too. Who knows, with a little creative license, I might be on to something….

    What if Anna looked like that?
