|“||Of all things, short shrift mustn't be given to poetry and tea.||”|
A genteel and intelligent woman of strong character, with the highest attainments in music, chess, literature, and painting. Although lacking in fortune and social standing, she's always good to those around her. After fortuitously becoming the proprietor of Ink Pavilion, she poured herself into the work and turned it into a famous tea house. Aside from generally being a place of elegant pursuits such as appreciating tea and music, the pavilion's staff often go about righting wrongs and upholding justice, garnering no shortage of praise and attracting quite a few scholars and gentlemen to its tables.
Dongtang, invented by Dong Xiaowan, one of the Eight Beauties of Qinhuai, is a delectable delicacy produced in Rugao County of Jiangsu Province. Its main ingredients are refined white flour, white sugar, sesame seeds, and malt syrup. It is made by specially picking ingredients, boiling down the sugar, making a candy core, and a candy coating. Its crispy sweetness melts in your mouth, leaving a delicious aftertaste, and it also makes a good pick-me-up snack. Because Xiaowan made it often and entertained guests with it, it grew in popularity. Over the years, businesses began to copy it and marketed it under the name "Dongtang".
