THE PERFECT CUP OF CHAI

People have spent decades to decode the mantra of making a perfect cup of tea. Trust me, they are still trying. Perfect tea is like fine wine. As wine tastes better with years passing by, a perfect blend of tea requires years of expertise and a rich malty soil, rainfall and altitude contribute to the flavour.

Our team of experts has been working their magic since 2010 and they want to share with the world their way of making a perfect cup of tea.

  • Pick a tea type that goes with your mood. If you are tired black tea is all you need, if you have worked out and need a stressbuster green tea is there to save the day. And if you want to try something different, you should go for flavoured teas. Name it and we have it!
  • Choose your favourite mug because we believe that the tea cup is one of the vital ingredients to a perfect cup of tea.
  • Use freshly drawn cold water and a clean teapot.
  • Make sure the water temperature is right. (which differs for different types of tea)
  • Always stick to the brewing method. (which is grenerally 2-3 minutes)

KULHAD WALI CHAI

North East India is famous for its tea production whereas, India is famous for its famous clay cups, which are used to serve millions of people everyday with Chai (Indian term for tea). Kolkata serves as the hub for the tea business in India, all the exports and dispatches of tea from Assam and Darjeeling take place in Kolkata. It is also known for the highest consumption of Kulhad cups in India. (People of Kolkata do have a sweet tooth!)

The tea served in these cups taste very different (in a good and yummy kind of way) from the usual tea we drink at our place. What is their special ingredient? To be honest, I have no idea! A kulhad has a capacity to hold 250 ml of liquids. It ranges between Rs.2/- to Rs.10/-

An article recently threw light on the way of drinking tea from kulhad and mentioned that most of the people have been drinking it in the wrong way. With every sip from the kulhad chai, we are supposed to nibble at the kulhad itself. When we do that, tiny bits of clay enter your mouth and give an extra bit of flavour to your tea and give it an earthy feel.

I guess I finally found their secret ingredient! A cup of tea makes everything better but a kulhad wali chai makes everything the best!

TEA IS FOR EVERYONE

BACK in the 1950s, according to official records, 55 per cent of four-year-olds drank tea with their meals while just 10 per cent had soda or juice. Child obesity was so unusual statistics were not recorded. The Nineties noticed a change in the tea consumption pattern of children. While technology and economy were progressing, tea consumption among children had fallen to a considerable level and as of now, it is not even recorded in the National surveys related to children’s health and diet.

However, studies have proved that small doses of tea for under-fives helped teeth, built concentration, hydrates, aids social development, boosts brain power and sporting performance.  It was found in a study that modest intake of caffeine can increase the power in kids when their strength was tested during exercise routines.

When compared to energy drinks, an average cup of tea contains 50mg of caffeine while energy drinks have around 80mg of caffeine level.  When milk is added to tea, it gives a calcium boost to the drink and thus becomes a benefitting intake for kids of all ages.
