Tea Poetry

Tea has inspired countless poems throughout its long history. Here are two of my very favorite tea poems, both composed by my beautiful and talented wife Alanna.

- Alishan Haiku -
Mountain mists roll in
Obscuring the jade green hills
In a sea of clouds



- Morning Tea -
The steaming water falls into my china cup.
The leaves inside will dance as the water wakes them up.



Please feel free to add your own favorite tea poems (or links to them) in the comments section.

I love writing poems inspired by tea. And I do not mean to self promote, but I recently came out with a Book of Tea photos and Tea poetry, all done by myself, and this post asks the question.

But more info can be found on my blog http://www.thesiptip.com/2010/06/in-each-sip-story.html
