Chai... Chai garam...!!!

In the early 1820s, the British East India Company began large-scale production of tea in Assam, India, of a tea variety traditionally brewed by the Singpho tribe. In 1826, the British East India Company took over the region from the Ahom kings through the Yandaboo Treaty. In 1837, the first English tea garden was established at Chabua in Upper Assam; in 1840, the Assam Tea Company began the commercial production of tea in the region, run by indentured servitude of the local inhabitants. Beginning in the 1850s, the tea industry rapidly expanded, consuming vast tracts of land for tea plantations. By the turn of the century, Assam became the leading tea producing region in the world

This is a cup of Hot Chai I had on my maiden train journey from Mysore :)

  1. again Miss the steam! But me like it!! Nothing like a train journey!

  2. @RED : The tea was kept on the window of a moving train da.. so was difficult.. plus my camera is not that sophisticated for that.. its basic easy share one :) but will try for sure next time :)
