Morning tea meditation, with Hōjicha.

a cup of tea.
a breath of dawn air.
birds compose their own poetry.

— Bhagavati

Morning tea meditation, with Hōjicha, Tramuntana mountain spring water and tea glass. 

Hōjicha  (Houjicha) (ほうじ茶?) is a Japanese green tea that is distinguished from others because it is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal; most Japanese teas are usually steamed. The roasting process used to make Hōjicha also lowers the amount of caffeine in the tea. 

It’s good for the quiet life.
