Sipping Tea, a feature on Kadak Chai ki Dukaan

 Swati Jain, Trainee Reporter MassCoMedia 

A man fully clad, barely open eyes, sits on a bench and says in his shivering voice "One tea please" then "one more, one more, one more…!" and the person who is most pleased by listening these words is the Chaiwala. Such type of scene could be seen easily in any street corner of National Capital Region (NCR).
The hot vapor of tea is the best healer of cold wintry breeze, so the tea makers are fully encashing the warmth of hot tea in this frosty weather. Where most of the people are only having problem with the low temperature, the tea makers are very much happy with the situation. "The sales has increased a lot, now a days", said a tea maker, Rajesh. With the downfall in temperature, the tea business is rising day by day. The work hour span has increased and most of the tea stalls are open late nights. There is a rapid growth in frequency of drinking tea. "I usually had one-two cups of tea per day but now I am taking four-five cups a day" said a BPO employee, Ankit Aggarwal.
The non drinkers are also switching towards it, some to get relief from their cold and some just to enjoy the weather with friends. And for the regular tea lovers, this is the golden time as a student, Puja says," Nothing can be better than a cup of hot tea in such a cold day". Winter also has added different flavors to the tea, with tea at its best in the season.
So whether this winter has taken anything good or not, but it surely has brought smile on some faces.
