Happy National Haiku Day!
Cloudy afternoon
A Ceylon, hibiscus brews
above the black tea. (https://www.poem-generator.org.uk/, upgraded)

A big bags cup of tea, as I was searching for black tea, but somehow simplier in taste than the teas I have in loose leaf. And this one sounded actually pretty good.

It is quite an interesting combination, black tea with hibiscus and rosehips and nothing else. No fruits, no berries… just those three ingredients.

I steeped it for 3 minutes and it was just alright. Bold black Ceylon base, with its common light aspect. Tart hibiscus, which was quite present mostly in aftertaste and giving the tea its specific taste. And same with rosehips, which added some depth to the tea; and it was present with mellow sweetness.

Honestly, I liked it more than I have been expecting.

Duplicate entry found (with a typo); and again unknown brand for you — not sure if available across the pond.

I love the description in your haiku. I tried the haiku generator for fun and none of mine made any sense, lol.

I am surprised that it generated so well done one. To be honest, I haven’t tried to come up with mine, as of course, writing in English is completely different to writing a poem.
