Tea is one of the most popular beverages across the globe. It gives you the right amount of caffeine kick to keep going throughout the day. In fact, in India, tea is no less than a culture. We find people sipping a hot cup of tea (or chai, as we call it) anytime anywhere. So much so that almost every Indian household today has a dedicated dabba to store tea leaves. That's not all. The beverage is not just confined to homes. From local chai tapris to the fanciest cafes in town, you will find tea and tea lovers at every nook and corner of the country (and around the world). Hence, to celebrate the popularity of tea, International Tea Day is observed annually on May 21, according to the United Nations Food and Agricultural Association.
