A chai or tea is a must for almost every Indian during the evening and is literally one of the only things they would want to wake up to. Every soul like to talk to their people and chai is what they would want to have while chit chatting about everything under the sky, sipping on to it. There is a joke used by keralites which says “do we really need to own a tea estate to get a chai” casually at their wives. The reality is that as simple a thing as tea would need to be cultivated with lots of care and patience and would need a good effort to grow it commercially.
