lǎodì ，hǎojiǔbùjiàn ，nándé nǐ yǒukòng lái kàn wǒ 。
Hey old boy, long time no see, it's not often you have time to come and see me.

I knew you had a grudge against me, so I didn't come empty-handed, I brought some Mingqian Longjing tea to toast you with.
shénme guài nǐ ，shì guàniàn nǐ ，rén lái jiù hǎo ，dài shénme lǐwù ，zhēnshìde ！zuòxia zuòxia ，xiān lái hē wǒ zhè jiàzhí bùfěi de wǔyíshānyánchá 。
It's not that I'm holding a grudge against you, it's that I miss you. It's enough that you came, you really didn't need to bring a gift. Really! Sit! Sit! First have a drink of this pricey Mount Wuyi rock tea.

Thanks! There's always the scent of tea and books when I come here, like going back in time to the ancient world.
