Types of People and Chai ☕

If there’s one thing that we Indians love it is a good cup of tea!! It is the essential start to our day and our comfort drink.

We even have tea personalities:

The Freeloaders

Hey, are you going to make tea? Can you make one cup for me please? I mean, since you are already in the kitchen….I wouldn’t impose otherwise…. Please make it strong….And use almond milk..I’m intolerant to normal milk…And use Sugar free.. I am not fussy like that.. Just make sure you get it as soon as it’s done.. Like don’t let the malai start to form.. Thank you!! You are a life saver! “

Grandma and tea

“You are up early today! It’s just 9’oclock. Today’s kids! We used to ensure as soon as our mother-in-law was up, there was a cup of tea, besides her. When are you making tea? What? What juice? I require my cup of tea, four times a day.”

After a sip:

Shi what is this? This is not Chai. Why is it so watery? Why is it so sweet? Where’s the Elaichi? Why did you not grate the Ginger and add to it? Tulsi leaves grow right next to the window – you don’t have to go to Darjeeling to get them. I always used to add tulsi when making tea. This is not how you make tea.. Just take it, I cannot drink this.. Where are you going? Brew me a fresh new pot.. ”

When offering guests some tea

Hello!! Welcome!! What a cold day na! Sit down I’ll make some tea. “

” Hello!! Welcome!! It’s been raining so much since morning na! Sit down I’ll quickly make some tea and hot pakodas. “

” Hello!! Welcome!! You just got back from work! I’ll quickly make some tea”

And then they are also some who:

” Hello!! Welcome!! Yea, I mean, you are not running late? Come in if you want to then. You want to sit down? Do you want something to drink? Some tea or water? Will water be okay? Water it is then! “

Travellers and Tea

” There’s still another three hours journey ahead. Is there any tea stall nearby? “

“Hello room service? Do you serve tea?”

“OH my God! This is such an endless stretch of a road. Someone should put up a tea stall here”

“Bhaiyya.. Two matka Chai.. Adrak Wali”

Tea lovers

“I loveee tea. My boyfriend is in Delhi and since we are like in this long distance, he did this sweetest thing for me – he stuffed the pantry with so many tea bags!! I have Jasmine, Chamomile, Oolong, Lemon, Assam, Masala.. I have tea for when I’m happy, tea for when I’m tensed, tea for weekends, tea for when I miss him.. This is my personal tea heaven. “

” What do you mean you don’t prefer tea? Are it’s much stronger than all this espresso stuff. You must not have had a proper cup. I’ll make you a cup – chef’s special. You’ll forget all about lattes and frappes. “

The diet people and Green tea

” No, I don’t drink tea. I drink just green tea these days. It detoxs my entire system plus calms my soul. It makes my skin glow so naturally plus I lose so much weight also. It’s just fab. “

The Chai Sutta lovers

” I cannot focus anymore! I need a break!!”

(To collegeaue)

” Hey, wanna head out to the tapri? Smoke break with a strong glass of tea? “

And that one major tea moment that we all have:

When we brew our first pot of tea and it tastes absolutely worthless and everyone else drinks it without complain so as to not hurt our feelings

How many such Chai lovers do you know? ☕
