From the moment my eyes fall upon its intricate texture and I inhale deeply, filling my lungs with the ambrosial redolence, I am carried away to another world and I fall gently into a field with tall grass, graceful flowers, and balletic leaves that dance with the wind. Lemongrass and verbena mingle blissfully with lavender, mint, and sage—a beguiling synthesis evocative of a summer grassland. Airy and inspiriting. — Urban Koi
This is an excerpt from a new piece that I wrote titled: Tea. It is published in Water Journal - Volume 3º, released in June 2017. I reveal an ancient legend and the unique history of tea, as well as the different phases and classes of tea: white, green, oolong, black, pu-erh, tisanes, and matcha. I touch upon a soupçon of science in tea, including some interesting health benefits and properties that make tea so special.
