Whenever I am in deep thought and need to take a break, I boil a pot of water and pour it over my favorite loose leaf tea. I love drinking tea. It is calming and refreshing. I read this poem today and thought what a wonderful description of tea for tea lovers.
I’ve taken tea on Bahrain’s isle,
Sri Lanka and Hong-Kong,
Where desert sands run mile on mile
And sunlight’s powerful strong;
Tea from the gallery in our plane
Gave ease when flights were long.
In tropic heat, in freezing rain
The tea-cup came along.
Tea in Japan, tea in Malay,
Tea in Aden’s heat.
At cricket on a summer’s day
A tea is hard to beat.
And I remember taking tea in the land of Lorna Doone
With Devon cream – just you and me
Whilst on our honeymoon.
- Tea, Please by Jasper Miles, 1994
