I do precious little writing about tea.
Instead, I create a stage with tea in the center.
I learned a lot about tea just from watching;
If you observe a graceful, skillful hand
Not a drop spilled or a fingertip scalded.
See how the aroma is inhaled-
And the resulting relationships built on sips
The tea Way:
is an artful way;
a skillful way;
a peaceful way;
a mindful way;
a calming way.
A way to show the character of the Preparer,
and a way to show the tea’s true colors.
