An Ode to Tea*

Oh Mighty Leaf Organic Breakfast Tea,

(and really, any tea)…

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

*Shamelessly pulled from the timeless "How Do I Love Thee" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning


  1. Hahahahaha... So you like tea, eh?

  2. Okay, so this totally made my day. I love that our Organic Breakfast inspired your reference of the EBB sonnet. Nice! I head up all our marketing and PR efforts at Mighty Leaf and would be happy to chat with you about tea and samples. Feel free to email me at Cheers.
