Remember how our dadi ma’s would comment that we Indians are 80% chai and 20 % water?
Well, ironically that stands true!
Chai is an emotion for most Indians. You’re sad or happy you crave chai, you’re busy and haggard with work you desire chai. Its summer winter or autumn, you crave chai. Chai is one such thing, which we, ‘Desi’ beings cannot live without. The best part being, the enticing smell of cardamom and clove that only magnifies once we sip chai in from our subcontinental earthen cups.
There is something charismatic about having chai form these earthenwares. For years we can find charming little stalls in our vicinity selling chai in these clay cups. These clay cups provide salvation, unlike the styled fashion mugs; the first sip hits the senses with an allure that seems to wash away the tensions of daily life. An unexplainable emotion, India Imprints cherishes the sentiment of drinking this ‘bhar ka chai.’
