Lapsang souchong is an acquired taste to say the least! Nice change though.
Note: title is provisional. Give me a better one!

Lapsang's smoky tea

Lapsang's souchong's
pungent nip of nose
wafts beyond the lip of cup
and sits there
waiting for my lust
to overcome me.

I approach,
humbled by the steep of tea,
the weep of leaves
giving off a smoky fragrance
only ancestors can love.

I pour it quickly,
drown my throat and
past my nose.
It coats my thirst.

The cup is emptied, filled
and emptied twice again,
until my lust is quenched.
