Epic Tea – day 3 of napowrimo

3 Apr
Chin set firm, he depressed to launch electric fire
Exciting the clear liquid to bubble with heat higher
Carefully selected receptacles of correct size
Unbroken ceramic pots, untarnished by compromise
Satisfied, he set about selecting optimum leaf
And spooning bean derivative, as per his partner’s brief
Short-chain carbohydrate added for sweetening the deal
A splash of purest cow-juice from the bottle with gold seal
Combine the ingredients, set upon a serving tray
Add a couple of biscuits for a great start to the day

Prompt: write a fourteener (14 syllables in each line). Wimped out of the iambic heptameter though!
