Second flush / 二番花


【日本語版は英語版のあとです】

Today is the day of first flush of Japanese tea (Normally, 88 days after "the day of spring" based on old lunatic calendar). Besides tea leaves, bright young green leaves sprout here and there. Japanese tea has second flush. Likewise, iris blooms twice. Tip of leaves turned in yellow tell you passage of days.

立春から八十八夜の今日は、新茶摘みの日。

緑が眩い季節。

日本茶に二番茶摘みがあるように、菖蒲は二回花開く。

黄味がかった葉先に、時のうつろいを観る。
