They call me a regular,
A coffee drinker in their teashop
So addicted to their blended matcha
I simply cannot stop
I eye the other drinks
And my friends have tried them all
But I stick with my refresh-ment
Summer, winter, spring, and fall
Owner Judy says it’s healthy
Like most of their yummy fare
That may ease my guilt somewhat,
But—sip, mmm—I’m not really sure I care
At times I eat the veggie quiche,
A salad, or soup of beans
But the reason I go again, again
Is my drink of powdered greens
Ok, I must admit I lied,
My reasons are galore
I love the staff, the vibe, the space,
The changing art displays and more
I call it my office away from home
Where I’m met with a welcoming smile
I set up my laptop, order my drink
And settle in for a while
On breaks from work, I roam the shop
As there is much to see
For Judy loves the whole globe round
And embraces it all in her world of tea
Feel like assam bop or mango mate?
Pu’erh, rooibos, or Formosa oolong?
There’s all this and much more—
Even a cinnamon named Mekong!
So stop on in.
Get a matcha and
A regular you’ll be
