Songs of Seven Cups 七碗茶诗








Original Poem (Excerpt)
"Songs of Seven Cups" 

by Lu Tong from Tang Dynasty

The first cup of tea kisses the throat;
The second cup shatters the wall of solitude;
The third cup explores the dry stream and opens up the poetry of my soul;
The fourth cup evaporates with the rest of world;
The fifth cup penetrates and sharpens the body;
The sixth cup calling;
And the seventh cup slowly sits steaming; the wind under my skin.

(English Translation by Haotian Wang)
