* Yu Chang recently told me that red beans symbolized longing in one's heart. (See, "The Red Beans, the Legend of the Love Beans"; also, click here for a presentation about Longing Heart Green Tea.)  Sadly, as an innocent young lad on a first date with a girl who wanted red bean ice cream, Yu wasn't aware of that ancient myth.  He is surely a lot wiser now.  Indeed, as I reported today at Simply Senryu, "Yu Chang is 75 tomorrow" (August 30, 2013).  I hope I'm as wise as Yu before I get to be seventy-five.  I better hurry. [This poem and explanation have been edited, as I had originally thought Yu was talking about green tea ice cream.  I'm glad he reminded me it was a red bean legned.]

I'm hearing of green tea ice cream first. I wonder how will it taste? It really sound strange. I used to have a cup of
original wuyi tea
daily.

Hello, Jenna, I was skeptical, but the bowl I had was excellent, great texture and a bit less sweet than most American ice cream.
