10 reasons why Indians love chai so much

01 Our much-loved tea

Indians and tea have a unique connection. It is not just a drink for us, but a ritual, a celebration and even a diversion from the regular mundane affairs and it is that inalienable part of our lives that most of us cannot do without. Tea or chai is loved through length and breadth of India and is among the most popular drinks today. According to Karan Shah, Director, Society Tea, "Being innately Indian is synonymous with starting the day with a steaming cup of chai, it is our love for tea that binds us unequivocally as a nation, no matter what our differences may be. It is one ritual that truly symbolises unity in diversity, and one common language that transcends regional distinctiveness. Tea is a constant in our lives and I feel that is why tea is celebrated so much in India."

There are several reasons why Indians love tea so much. Here are some of them.

02 It is calming

Chai is our go to drink in times of stress. It not just makes us think clearly but also acts as a pain killer! How often have we heard people say that they need chai because their head is aching. In fact there is scientific evidence to back the fact that it can act as an anti-depressant and helps reduce tension.

03 We bond over tea

If there’s one thing that Indians are a huge fan of, then it’s undoubtedly tea. Saying ‘chai’ before saying ‘hi’ is our morning ritual. Even the ever so famous ‘ chai pe bulaya hai’ metaphor shows how tea has always taken the center stage in India. Who doesn't love to chit chat with friends or family around a cup of tea? After all, it’s the one thing that hears all of our gossips and is the ultimate companion.

Whether it is summer, monsoon or winter, tea is a non-stop tradition for us.

Similarly, it is beneficial for the rest of the seasons too. It warms us in winter and no rainy season is complete without this magical brew. Can you think of barish without chai and pakora?
