Carpe Diem #321, Tea (provided by Cathy Tenzo)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a coincedence, we have a Tan Renga Challenge running with a haiku by Cathy and our today's prompt is also provided by Cathy. Today our prompt is Tea (provided by Cathy Tenzo) and I can recall that I have used it earlier. I don't remember if it was here or at my base weblog Chèvrefeuilles haiku-blog. I think it was at my base weblog where I had a weekly (and later a bi-weekly) haiku meme titled "Tackle It Tuesday", but maybe I will come to that later on in this post.

A Perfect Cup of Tea

Tea ... not my favorite hot-drink. I am more of a Coffee guy, but ... I enjoy my late evening cup of tea, Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) with honey and cinnamon.
Rooibos, a plant from Southern Africa, is a nice tasteful kind of tea and it's very soothing and calming ... so ... it's a 'good before going to sleep'- drink.
