Inspirational Green Teas

Yesterday, 12 year-old Liliana spent some time in the teahouse with her brother and mom. They're home-schooled and working on a tea project this year. As part of their studies, they visit The Good Leaf from time to time and sample different teas. Yesterday, while comparing Japanese and Chinese green teas, Lily was inspired to poetry:

a light scent of grass

washes through boiling water

Japanese green tea

like dreamy summers

smoking on a charcoal grill

Chinese strong green tea

I think her impressions were spot on.

Yesterday Lily was inspired by green tea, and I was impressed and inspired by Lily.

Hi, thanks for putting my poems up!

I really like your tea. If someone is reading this and hasn't gone there yet, you really need to go!

Our time at The Good Leaf has become one of our favorite parts of the week.
