leaves begin to swell and uncurl

This was nice. Now I need to go and pour me a cup of java. What a very pleasure way to start my day with your haiku!

When you get the first hint of the tea's aroma- it's bliss...
Wonderful!

Lovely calm photo and 'ku ... I can almost smell the tea and feel the heat rising from the steeping cup.

Even the thought of tea always soothes and calms me, and your haiku perfectly expresses that sensation. Lovely!

I brewed a cup of tea thank to this lovely haiku tonight.

Oh yes. As long as tea takes time to brew there will at least remain a few moments of calm in every day.

This is just wonderful. It actually sort of snuck up on me. I'm off for a break from the computer. I'm inspired to sip some tea.
