Over a cup of chai: The Indian Trumpet's tea edition. Chai is a sensitive & sweet subject for us Indians; it’s not a beverage but an emotion. The sound of water boiling on the pan, the whiff of tea leaves filling up the room, the conversations that happen over a cup … cha or chai is a tradition with us. It’s a drink that runs in our ‘veins’. For a few the tea spelt grandma’s love, for many it brought alive the memories of the college canteen, many shared how the cup made their mornings brighter, countless spoke of how they loved the teatime that they shared with their partners and yes, everyone mentioned that a cup of chai made spending hours at work less painful. We found ourselves connecting over the humble chai, irrespective of whether it was served in bone china cup & saucer, pragmatic Styrofoam cups, rustic kulhads or commonplace steel glasses. So, get yourself a steaming cup of chai & sit back to flip through the aromas, flavours, memories and joys of chai.
