Peppermint Tea

Spicy fresh tang
Green-looking
Yet so yang
Peppermint tea.

As chai this tea is
Refreshing –
As iced tea,
Both cool and hot
A steaming cup –
This peppermint tea.

Spicy fresh tang
Green-looking
Yet so yang
Peppermint is for me.

Soothing scent –
Aromatic coolness –
Slowing down thoughts,
Not heaven sent.
Relaxing the palate
Stopping the madness
Try .

Spicy fresh tang
Green-looking
Yet so yang
Peppermint tea.

A plant so green and cool
To give up its growth
To make me a drink
Once a plant waving
In the breeze
Now these leaves are part of
This steaming brew in a tea cup.

Spicy fresh tang
Green-looking
Yet so yang
Peppermint tea is for me.
