The unfurling of tea leaves in boiling wateris called the Agony of the Leaves
Sounds so painful! too bad it's not more "fun spa for the leaves".
ha ha I agree with ya, Susan! Or how about "Surf's up!" :-)
What agony and suffering the tea does for us, gives such delight in the cup and down the throat.
And into the soul.Well said, Marilyn.
As I heard from an enlightened barista, let the agony of the leaves replace the anxiety of the bean. --Spirituality of Tea
Love that, Jason!
'Agony' also means: a strong sudden display.
