Much is said and written about Tea’s health properties but there is so much more than antioxidants that can be found in a cup of good tea. The Japanese Buddhist priest Myoe (1173-1232) inscribed his thoughts on tea on a kettle:

Tea has the blessing of all deities

Tea promotes filial piety

Trea drives away all evil spirits

Tea banishes drowsiness

Tea keeps the five internal organs in harmony

Tea wards off disease

Tea strenghtens friendship

Tea disciplines body and mind

Tea destroys the passions

Tea grants a peaceful death
