I love sipping Darjeeling green tea;
Like its aroma, like its color.
To a day-long freshness, my key.
Tea adds luster to my rich culture.
Like it better with cardamom;
The spice further enhances its taste.
The best tea is prepared by Mom;
When she makes, none of it goes to waste.
Love dunking buttered rusks and biscuits;
Love dunking jammed and jellied bread too.
Drinking tea keeps me in high spirits;
A habit which remains fixed like glue.
Had tea in Calcutta in clay cups;
Delicious and so energetic.
After drinking, disposed of the cups.
The best drink to keep me kinetic.
