Sencha’s gentle taste
Fresh leaves, verdant and fragrant,
Light brown oolong leaves
Soak up water and expand
Keemun tea with its
Strong fragrance of autumn leaves
Dark brown Assam tea
Gives strong color and fragrance
Up to the cup’s brim.
Green matcha powder
Whisked about in hot water
Forms calm, forceful tea.
