A Name for the Shop

Iroh’s tea shop in Ba Sing Se  was named in honor of his son.

When Lu Ten was seven years old, he told Iroh that he wanted a nickname. Because his mother’s name, Luli, means ‘jasmine’ and his father had earned the nickname ‘the Dragon of the West,’ the boy decided to combine them for his own nickname:

The Jasmine Dragon

PROMPT: Unexpected Visits (Day 7; January 5)


To Iroh, it was not a surprise when Zuko would drop by Ba Sing Se once a month to grab some tea and seek wisdom from his uncle. Iroh looked forward to it because praise from his customers can make him a satisfied owner but seeing Zuko inhale a pot of Jasmine in a few minutes makes him undeniably happy. 

But today Iroh almost dropped his cup when he saw Fire Lord Zuko arm in arm with none other than Katara. 

“My, Zuko, Katara! This is quite a sight for sore eyes,” Iroh sang. “What brings both of you here?” Iroh asked while wiggling his eyebrows. “Together?”

Zuko did not look pleased and he only shook his head. Katara smiled sweetly to Iroh and replied, “Zuko and I, well…It’s obvious now, isn’t it? We’ve already told our friends and my family. Zuko here wanted you to know. He told me that the Jasmine Dragon was the first place he felt at home after he was exiled. I thought this would be appropriate.” 

Iroh’s eyes glistened as he stared at Katara. Zuko only grumbled under his breath but his cheeks were starting to tinge. Iroh wiped at his eyes, smiled, and yelled at his waiter, startling everybody in the shop, “GET THE FINEST TEA FOR THE FINEST COUPLE IN BA SING SE. HURRY UP. ZUKO ISN’T GOING TO GET A GIRL LIKE HER AGAIN.”


and that was the tale of how Uncle Iroh became the biggest Zutara shipper. I LOVE UNCLE IROH!!!
