Tea Makers

Tea or Chai is Kolkata’s caffeinated beverage of choice, and we wouldn’t want it any other way considering Kolkata has been named India’s capital of tea many times. Kolkata takes its tea very seriously. You will rarely find any roadside tea stall , selling tea in paper or plastic cups. The earthen pot is synonymous with tea in this city of joy, which believes in spending a good amount of its leisure time in having long winding conversations over chai and biscuits or a smoke with friends.Here people are busy making tea on street in kolkata.
