Something magical happens around the tea table.
Have you ever been to a tea ceremony?
Have you ever sat elbow to elbow and drank tea?
Taking the time, Gong Fu style?
From the first inhale to the last sips.
It is uplifting and exhilarating.
I’ve seen folks close to sleep, awaken.
Eyes become clear.
Color resumes to pallor faces.
Sip after sip after sip.
Eyes brighten and smiles widen.
Fogs lift and clarity appears.
A moment comes.
Hearts open and spirits lift.
A connection to heaven, earth, the tea, and one another.
Warmed and comforted, guests depart with a sweetness.
I love the tea table and the ceremony of drinking tea.
Won’t you join me?
Come and be, the magic of the tea.
