Tea soliloquy

To steep, or not to steep – that is my dilemma.
Whether ‘tis better in my mouth to quench
My tastes and senses in heated haste
Or to wait the elongated test of time
And extract exact flavor. To endure, to perfect.
I wait – tasteless water shall not be the end
Savory flavor, well awaited brew not too soon
Or left too late. ‘Tis the consummation
Ought to be sought. To endure, to perfect.
