Coffee or tea ?

This unusual form of the black stemmed yam, Colocasia esculenta (yes, the one that we make bo bo cha cha with) is called "coffee cup" in USA. The leaves are really cup-shaped and can hold water during rain - though for what purpose I cannot really tell. The dark purple stem and venations are rather neat. Mei Mei, you may not pour coffee on it...
