morning chill-
China cup with steaming
chrysanthemum tea

tropical hillside-
women in colorful saris
picking the tea

yerba mate-
drinking with friends from
a hollow gourd

graceful maiko-
the ivory tea scoop
in gloved hands

Grand bazaar-
the rug seller offers
hot apple tea

Siberian night-
using dry pinecones
for the samovar

desert moonlight-
camels and bedouins around
the tea kettle

Tibetan monastery-
sipping butter tea from
wooden bowls

airline service-
tea from plastic carafe
no sugar tong

dog days-
supermarkets ran out
of iced tea
