Indians take their chai very seriously. In fact, it is often said that ours is a country that runs on tea. From small roadside stalls to five-star eateries, tea is a served almost everywhere and can be found at almost any time of the day. Cups of chai are served in offices, offered to guests at home, brewed for morning cuppas and even taken as nightcaps. In such a scenario, it is not strictly necessary to have an 'excuse' to drink tea, but when Zomato India asked their followers for excuses to have chai, they came up with the funniest responses.
This morning, Zomato asked their Twitter followers to keep adding to a thread of excuses to have chai.
