Awaken

March 01, 2020

Japanese poet Kobayashi Issa, also known as Kobayashi Yataro and Kobayashi Nobuyuki, was born in Kashiwabara, Shinanao province. He eventually took the pen name Issa, which means “cup of tea” or, according to poet Robert Hass, “a single bubble in steeping tea.”


[the snow is melting]

The snow is melting
and the village is flooded
with children.

By Kobayashi Issa
Translated by Robert Hass 

Snow is melting in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, and with it go the bleak worries of winter. It is time to green the sun with joy like a child rushing outside to enjoy a spring day. What stressors can you release during this transitional time? What shadows could a joyful outlook banish from your life?

 To brighten up the last of these gloomy days, we are drinking...

Rooibos Sun-Kissed Citrus

37 natural antioxidants will keep you beaming all through your day. Bright citrus flavor. Naturally caffeine-free.

 

 

Sencha Extra Green with Matcha
A premium Sencha green tea with an extra kick of matcha (green tea leaves that are ground into a powder). When in powder form, the whole leaf--and therefore all the caffeine it contains--is available, which means that you will consume more caffeine than when you simply steep the leaves and drink the infusion they leave behind. Enjoy the extra energy--maybe you will be motivated to start your spring cleaning!
