Success

An amicable drink

An old man with wispy grey hair and a gentle, kindly-seeming countenance waits for you in Murgatroyd's Imperial Tea Shop. […]"A small token. I'm much moved by your interest in me and my people. I hope you enjoy it."[…]

Description summary:
An English couple is indignant that you are rubbing elbows with a Khaganian, but the old man is flattered by your interest in the Khanate and provides you with a translation of Khanate literary works. Apparently the very fact that you two are meeting is an indicator of positive relations between London and the Khanate.
