Tea with the Dragon

Updated on March 20, 2012

One

Peppermint's good for a stomach that's queasy

Darjeeling makes late night study more easy

There's Earl Gray, Gunpowder, and Lobsang Souchong,

But the tea I prefer is the one called Oolong.

Come in, relax, forget all your toil

There's a cup in your hand, and the kettle will boil

Oolong is the dragon, the tea and his name.

It's all very Zen when the answer's the same!

Take tea with the Dragon, come be with the Dragon, You'll see with the Dragon, you can't stay the same.


Two

Some say he is harmless, some call him insane

He talks of the aeons, and still you remain

He may have secrets, he won't be revealing

Ignore all the burn marks all over the ceiling!

Take tea with the Dragon, come be with the Dragon, you'll see with the Dragon, you can't stay the same!

Three

It's not scalding, or bitter, it's really quite nice

The cups have no handles, they warm you up twice

He stirs up the tea with a small bamboo whisk

You know you can trust him no matter the risk!

Take tea with the Dragon, come be with the Dragon, you'll see with the Dragon, you can't stay the same.

Four

Come in, relax, forget all your toil

There's a cup in your hand, and the kettle will boil

Oolong is the Dragon, the tea, and his name

It's all very Zen when the answer's the same!

Take tea with the Dragon, come be with the Dragon, You'll see with the Dragon, you can't stay the same!

      What a poetic essence of Tea; Usually I used to drink tea every day, I just love to drink tea with some sugar and milk. Very energetic I must say.

      But Dear Pelton, I want to drink your so called Oolong tea just like you with a total poetic mood at least once in my life time.

      Thank you
