Spirited Giving

Tea inspires poetry in our daily lives, especially during the holidays. Before you start rolling your eyes and speed-reading to the bottom of the page, please enjoy this actual poem inspired by the spirit of tea.







Tea Geeks Gather Round

Camellia sinensis
Is so versatile and true
Did you ever stop to think
What a single plant can do?
It gets us through the winter
So dark and so austere
It’s magic in a cup, you see
A maker of good cheer
We know that tea geeks gather
Like elves around the tree
Hoping, just like children
To unwrap their favorite tea
A bag of Roasted Chestnut?
Perhaps some Chocolate Stout?
Maybe Frosted Citrus
Is the tea you dream about
So steep yourself a pot
And share it with a friend
Let’s celebrate together
As the year comes to an end
Happy, merry, jolly
Warm wishes from our team
Let’s make the season special
With a cup of joy and steam
