In the Kingdom of Leaves, magic and faerie folk are part of the everyday life. It is a land where people have the names of different teas and more. A tailor loses his business. He has not plans for what to do until he receives a letter from Lord Lavender of the House of High Tea. From the way others described the lord, he is picturing to meet with a old plump man but to his amazement the Lord isn't that old and is rather fetching.
