Served from the Heart

My response to imaginary garden with real toads – The Way of Tea


Steam is released from the meeting

Of hot water and cold porcelain:

Tea leaves and petals infusing

Fragrance of sweet jasmine,

Served from the heart.

  1. The idea of serving tea from the heart is a very Japanese one. That is the most important consideration above everything else. Nicely simple and clean piece very suited to the art of Japanese tea ceremony.
