—ODE TO CHAI—
“If by the sweetness of your cooling milk I am soothed and nurtured, the pungency of ginger and black pepper stimulates me.
If by the astringent bittersweet of fennel I am cleansed and tranquilized, the heat and sweet of cinnamon vitalizes me.
If by your bitter tea leaves you lift me high, your carminative cardamom neutralizes the fall.
If by your digestive appetizing powers my metabolism is ignited, the satiation from your equilibrium is full.”
