There are various kinds of loves a person experiences in their lives, one for family, one for their pets, one for their better halves & then there comes the love for chai and that, in our opinion, is the best kind. Coffee might be the new age addiction but chai has been there for us for centuries and we Delhiites have an unbreakable bond with it. And to prove the same, we’ve curated a list of the types of chai lovers you’ll come across in the city. Check it out!
1. “Thoda Aur Boil Kar, Abhi Colour Nahi Aaya!”

While some like their tea to be light and milky, the others (just like us) love to have it all strong and kadak. And it comes out right only when we boil, boil some more and keep boiling it until the colour screams strong in all possible ways!
2. “Arey Chai Dedo Yaar!" (Said @ 10 AM, 12 PM, 2 PM, 4 PM, 6 PM...)
Then comes the one who simply live for drinking their cuppa chai. Be it in the office, college or home, they have a tea alarm set that rings every two hours and that’s when they HAVE to take their chai ki chuski, else, god forbid, their blood pressure drops and start feeling all dizzy and drowsy!
3. “Chai Ka Garmi Se Kya Relation Hai?!”
Garmi ho ya sardi, there’s nothing better than our cup of tea, right? Only chai lovers like us know that our beloved drink has got nothing to do with the boiling temperature outside. You may be sweating like a pig but a hot cup of masala tea is all you need to soothe yourselves. Plus, we won’t mind a few cookies too!
4. “Baarish Matlab Chai Aur Pakore Time!”

During monsoons, chai lovers have all the more reason to get chugging their beloved beverage. Just like we have social smokers, there are occasional tea drinkers too and their preferred time to sip on tea is invariably the rainy season. And come on, can you think of anything better than a hot cup of adrak wali chai with a crispy plate of pakoras as it pours out? We surely can’t!
5. “Meri Bed Tea Kahaan Hai?”

And then comes the one who wants to open their eyes and see their cup of tea, first thing in the morning. Their day doesn’t start with a warm hug or a sweet kiss but with a warm cup of chai and we can’t blame them for we are the same!
6. “Chai Sutta Se Better Combo Hai Hi Nahi Duniya Mein!”
We all have that one friend in the group or a colleague in office who has to take a minimum of three chai & sutta breaks and they drag you along all of those times. And if you’re one of them, then you too must believe that there’s nothing better than chai and sutta in this world, right?
7. “Thandi Hone Do Phir Piti Hoon!”

Most of us love our tea hot, but then there are some who like it a li’l thanda (no, we’re not talking about iced tea here). They’ll prolly keep it under the fan or just let it sit for a while (mostly until everyone else is done drinking theirs) and then gulp down the whole thing in one go. We don’t get it though, but everyone’s got their style and that’s cool!
So, which one of these are you?
