Hello! I am Tea also, known by many other names like Chai, Chaha, Kawa, Cha, etc. Like my many names, I have many facets to my personality too. I can be really deep and profound when I want to and frivolous and silly when it suits me. I hang out with artists and coders, with bored corporate zombies and passionate social workers, with teenagers and oldies too. I can be romance in a cup when it’s pouring outside and there are piping hot samosas to give me company. I can also be a great time in a cup at office tea breaks and after classes!
I hold many a stories within; some sad, some happy, a few are rib tickling and some are soul stirring! I am great company for a night long jam session, for cramming up Trigonometry formulas, or just for staying up to listen to some old Hindi music.
I am an essential part of everyone’s memories; I’ve spent many moments watching friends pour their hearts out, couples breaking and making up, and dads giving their sons the birds & bees talk. Some like me strong, some prefer me green, some like me sweet, and some like to add some spice. Regardless of how I am made, I always manage to win hearts.
I’d like to define myself as simple yet strong. I come with no frills attached and no additional drama. I can dress up or dress down depending upon the occasion. I am flexible and therefore I can fit myself in little tea bags or get comfortable in tin boxes. Sometimes I like to get a little flirty with finely crafted china too. I am served differently in different countries and this just adds to my dynamic personality.
I could be poured in plastic, glass, steel, porcelain, or earthen cups but I remain the same throughout. I am a chunk of history and legend, brewed together. Take me with you on your journeys and I promise to keep you company through all your adventures. Yours Teafully, Tea.
