Happiness in a jar

The first bowl sleekly moistened throat and lips,
The second banished all my loneliness
The third expelled the dullness from my mind,
Sharpening inspiration gained
from all the books I’ve read.
The fourth brought forth light perspiration,
Dispersing a lifetime’s troubles through my pores.
The fifth bowl cleansed ev’ry atom of my being.
The sixth has made me kin to the Immortals.
This seventh…
I can take no more.
– Lu Tung, Chinese Poet

Info on Lu Tung and taoism

The jasmine flower in this photo was wrapped in green tea leaves. It unfolded in contact with hot water. It was ready to drink after a few minutes.
