India, like many less-economically developed nations, is full of tea drinkers who think tea bags are the way to go for quality and loose tea is for poor people. Once the world's largest tea producer, tea is consumed in a variety of ways: hot, strong and very, very sweet in Mumbai, with baking soda in Kashmir and often with masala (what people in the west call 'chai,' which is just the Hindi word for tea).

I hope to be out there in Jan '13 and get some tea drinking in, although I don't know if I'll be able to make it up to Assam!

In India tea is probably the most preferred drink after water...

You will find tea stalls at most cross-roads....

For Tea-lovers India is THE PLACE TO TRAVEL....
