“Tea Poems have been written since we have been drinking tea. In classical Chinese literature, a vast body of work includes many poems dedicated to tea. You will be surprised to know that there are more than forty-eight thousand surviving poems written by twenty thousand poets from the Tang dynasty alone. Tea and poetry have an inextricable link. In Japan, the poet Issa, an 18th-19th-century Japanese poet from the village of Kashiwabara in the mountains of Japan’s Shinano Province wrote many tea haiku. Similarly, you can find many modern poets across the world whose subject is tea.”

And now I rise to make some tea and meditate! Thank you for this Mark.
…and have a peaceful day, Paul.
Thank you Mark I did, wonderful.
I’m a lover of herbal teas but have never had any spiritual connection with the brewing of tea leaves. It seems that I’m missing something important worthy of attention.
Thanks for your comment, Rosaliene. For me, tea is more meditative. It seems to create an automatic mindfulness for me, especially when I’m writing.
