Tea for One, Please

Indulged in green tea this evening 
Two cups to be exact 
And I mean tea 
not the intoxicating herb
which used to be called tea 
I am not Chinese 
But they have some good ideas 
One of them is imbibing green tea 
In China there have been Jews, Chrisitians, Moslems 
Taoists, Confucians, Buddhist and probably some 
some other systems of belief 
Now these systems struggle against a vicous foe 
The battle has begun in Hong Kong 
Another Tiamamen Square?
Let us hope not!
I only know a few phrases of Mandarin 
My nephew is marrying a Chinese women 
next February 
Looking foward to the tea ceremony

As you must know my husband is Chinese/Hawaiian. I drink a special green tea mix every morning. My husband's ancestors are Mongolian which is why his family members are all so tall. My husband is six three. Early Congratulations to your nephew and wife. Will the wedding be in China! I have only visited Hong Kong. Enjoy the wedding. I enjoyed your poem. xxoo

Green Tea is about as healthy as you can get; tons of antioxidants in there. I's got wonderful flavor; glad you enjoy it. Beautifully penned piece about it.

Green tea is SO good for us. I am trying to drink it now at least twice a day. and learning to drink tea morning, noon and night now. A very good habit to be sure. I have not heard of things heating up in Hong Kong.That sounds worrisome. (don't listen much to news)

There are many systems of beliefs but when we come together to drink green tea, its a unison effect, salutations dear one.
