Tea of India – Chai
Chai is the common equalizer in India – from the rich to the poor. No matter what their position in life, an Indian relishes a cup of tea. The rich ones have their tea served in fancy tea-pots, delicate porcelain cups on well laid out tables with cookies and pastries. The not-so-affluent have it in more humble settings. But the joy and satisfaction is the same.
A good cup of chai is the answer to body aches, headaches and the morning blues.
Call it “Chai” or “Choi” or “Cha” or “Tea” the joy of having chai is awesome.
