Chai Tea

On the rare occasion that I pour a cup of tea without spilling a drop I feel like some sort of martial arts master.

I’m sure it’s possible that after a million years of pouring tea our society could have designed a pot less prone to dribbling, but to pour a perfect cup from some sort of fool-proof “modern” design just wouldn’t offer the same satisfaction.

In those one-in-a-million moments when I lift and tip with the perfect angle and trajectory that not a single molecule of red rose drools down the spout I sit up straighter and feel that much more confident… like I can take on this afternoon with the unmatched balance of voracity and patience of a Jedi master.
