Chai is the tea that awakens me
in the mornings, as I speak with God,
energizing and warming my inside
with its steamy spice – I’m in awe.
What makes that creaminess roll
around my tongue so smoothly?
It’s like pulling fresh cream –
from a cow that’s still mooing.
What creates that zing of spice?
Is it anise, nutmeg or cinnamon?
Whatever the blend, I shan’t complain –
but especially don’t forget the cardamon.
Oh chai tea latte, my heart inflates
each day during my Bible study,
when you soothe my soul with luscious tea –
just as the Bible speaks to me.
