  2. Just had my first cuppa of the day, and am floundering in tea choice.Don't seem to be able to find one I really want to get out of bed for these days. You have a great set of options.

  9. Tea is my first brew of the day. I am definitely a tea granny. I enjoyed this post with your list of exotic and favorite blends. It does read like an incantation, as the cheesewolf says. Way cool.

  11. See, this is what I love about poetry... how it can celebrate something so sweet and simple as a cup of tea. Lovely...

  12. LOVE THE FLOW!
    This feels like a poetic version of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, a ritual filled with meaning and precise in it's enactment.

  13. What serenity this piece brings to mind. I've always wanted to be a tea drinker for the scene and process of making and choosing from all those teas. Wonderful poem!

  14. OOPS, I'm not a tea drinker, but it would be difficult to miss the the strong sense of feeling in these words. I agree, it does read like an incantation, or maybe a very tasteful and scented meditation.

  15. I love the list of names and the refrain-like repetitions. The result is a peaceful, timeless feeling.
