Matcha must be made from Sencha Green
to taste like ground kimono, silky smooth 
that settles on your lips, her milky sheen
smells of kisses -puts you in the groove

adjectives retreat afraid of cliche
but ‘creamy’ falls asleep on Matcha’s chest
so apposite the poet lets it stay -
of all descriptions this suits Matcha best

Matcha’s unimpressed by noise and drama
disappears before you realise
she’s worked her milky magic, made you calmer 
teased you with her inky almond eyes. 

(from Distinguished Leaves, Poems for tea-lovers, by Elizabeth Darcy Jones)
