Happy #teacuptuesday Hauntiers! @tea_on_the_trail beat us to the punch with her chai inspiration featuring #nocturnalnotes
#repost ・・・ Friends don't let friends drink bad chai.
(Spoiler: this most definitely is NOT bad chai!)
I remember when (late 90s?) the US was swamped with chai influenced flavors. You know what I mean- you could get "chai" out of vending machine at gas stations, "instant chai" at the grocery store... what started out a good fit for Americans love of cinnamon teas turned into "watery sugar with a chai aroma" and flamed out. .
Pity.  Because good chai, like this Nocturnal Notes from TeaSpectral is a thing of beauty. Warming, tantalizingly spicy, with juicy blackberry & currant... so much flavor depth that it forgives a million steeping sins. But you do owe it to yourself to steep it perfectly, at least the first time. Delicious au naturale or traditionally sweet & milky.
Tea: @teaspectral Nocturnal Notes 210° 5 mins, shown with frothed cream
China: Royal Albert,  Val d'or .

Excerpt from the poem "Courtesy" in #NocturnalNotes

FAMILY
I found Benita underneath the baobab
in Washington, D.C.
my anchor, rope, and kaleidoscope
that I view with half-shut eyes.
she rebirthed my calling -
not to be the brightest star
but to be the proudest dad
of two scions, picky eaters.
one made my bosom his pillow
the other trails me like a shadow
different, but alike in their little ways.
roots and wings, I’m bequeathing
roots to ground in respect, love and
perseverance like potter wasps
wings to soar above sullen skittles
that will litter their bumpy footpaths.

Musings #NocturnalNotes

Excerpt from "Akara Burger"
July 21st, 1994 8:15 pm "now they're done!
the brown balls
sandwiched by succulent loaves
held by hungry hands
begin their homeward journey
in our salivated mouths.
by midnight
the balls are all gone!
the late comers
go home disappointed
on garri stomachs
they will sleep and dream
of the akara burger"
