2nd Steep of the Day
Try this NEW Tea on a WHIM
Dry Tea Smells Slightly Musty and Earthy
With a Weird Peppery Hint.
The STEEP after 6 Min. is DIFFERENT to SAY The LEAST
I’m Sipping to find EARL and he seems to be Hidden
In the the Mist of Peppery Must and He’s hard to Find
Maybe a Longer Steep and He’ll come out to Play.
But I can’t Find the Earl Of GREY.
Wonderin about Future Steeps.
Keep On Steepin

2nd Steep of The Day
Steeped up a Cup of this Lipton Wildberry.
I Like the Berry Flavor of this Lipton Black Tea.
The Black Tea is Bold and Robust.
But The Fruit Flavors are Strong enough to accent the Tea.
Great Tantalizing Flavors in a Good Warm Tea Liquor.

The Book of Tea Okakura Kakuzo

The Book of Tea was written by Okakura Kakuzo in the early 20th century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been republished many times. – In the book, Kakuzo introduces the term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of Japanese culture, thought, and life. The book is noted to be accessibile to Western audiences because though Kakuzo was born and raised Japanese, he was trained from a young age to speak English; and would speak it all his life, becoming proficient at communicating his thoughts in the Western Mind. In his book he elucidates such topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of Tea and Japanese life. The book emphasises how Teaism taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity. Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts. He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
