Valentine’s Day Haiku Contest

  • February 8, 2011

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and love is in the air! In honor of the day of love, we’re hosting a chance to win four of our favorite teas with a haiku poem contest.

The winner will receive each of these passion-inspiring teas:

Jasmine Green-a delicate, floral bouquet

Rooibos Superfruit-contains organic Schizandra berry, revered as an aphrodisiac

Darjeeling-a perfect pair with chocolate

Premium Japanese Green-for this Japanese artistic tradition

Comment on this post with your haiku poem written to your sweetie, or about your ideal Valentine’s Day, or to your favorite cup of tea (that always loves you back)!  Remember, haikus are three lines, with 5 syllables in the 1st line, 7 syllables in the 2nd line, and 5 syllables in the 3rd line.

We’ve written one to get you started:

Stars bright above us                                                                             We watch the moon together                                                                Hot cups in our hands

Whatever your inspiration, we’d love to hear from you! The winner will be selected randomly on February 14th.

    one lonely clove surfacing
    in search of true love
