Romancing the Leaf: James Norwood Pratt honors Lu Yu The Tea Saint

James Norwood Pratt: part plant, part human, and all poetry. One of the greatest spokespeople in the West for the beauty of the leaf, this man is passionate about tea.

This article on the "Tea Saint" Lu Yu, author of the Cha Ching, (The Way of Tea), is a great introduction to the early days of humanity's romance with this enduring herb. It honors his role in the pivot point where this romance really took off between humans and Camellia Sinensis, the tea plant.

Published in a new online tea magazine "The Leaf," its definitely worth a look while sipping your finest cup: "Lu Yu: Soul Man," by JN Pratt.
