Ode to my morning tea ritual

Tea, why do I have to have thee,

So early in the morning

To banish my feelings of the boring

Boil the water, warm the pot,

Tea leaves ready, not a lot,

Four minutes for an ideal brew

To reach the nearly perfect hue

Lift the mug to touch my lips

No such thing as taking sips,

Now the pot is drained of every drop

And my day begins to “bop”.

    I’m a big tea fan as well, and really appreciate this lovely post. I’ve started trying to make my own herbal teas, and am figuring out it really is an art to get that perfect blend. Lovely blog, I look forward to more! ~Becca from BYW
