Travel With Mansoor: Incredible India!

Travel With Mansoor: Incredible India!It is estimated that India consumes 837,000 tonnes of tea every year. The ritual of drinking chai transcends all boundaries, status and people. Chai wallahs are found everywhere you go – from office towers to roadside stops to railway stations – serving tea with masala (spices), sugar and milk. The thick sweet drink is the integral part of life in India.

Most Indians drink tea, like the British, at least twice a day – once at breakfast and again in the afternoon. It is considered a perfect drink for the country’s hot weather as it helps to trigger the body’s natural cooling reflexes.
