Deep within the vintage halls
Of Oxford's covered market,
Is the home of Cardews:
The famous coffee and tea merchants,
Have you heard of them?
With so many aromatic gems to treasure,
Which will allure you?
What do you wish to gain?
Who will comfort you through grey rain?
Might I suggest the sensual Ceylon?
You look like a Nuwara Eliya admirer.
The silver tipped leaves of Sri Lanka.
The high grown kidney stone slayers.
Ah! Ceylon Kandy from the north.
That's a very good voice.
It's a malty adventure
And a spicy bouquet.
Thanks for your custom.

More colourful journeys await.
