Why Tea?

Why this Leaf, and not some Other?

Why this Plant, and not its Brother?

Why this Petal, White Soft and Yellow?

Why this Brew, Bright Smooth and Mellow?

Why this Water, Nurtured by Gaia?

Why this Ware, made Earth and Fire?

Why this Taste, Returning and Sweet?

Why this Wind, beneath my feet?

Why this Nectar, Drunk by the Sages?

Why this Sharing, Passed Down through the Ages?

Why this Concert, of Liquor and Leaf?

Why this Music, of Silent Relief?

Why this Seed, Sown Green and Brown?

Why this Way — Cha Dao?

Why this Attraction, Drawn Towards Tea?

Won’t You Receive this Bowl and See?
