Celebrated author Henry James says in his book, ‘Portrait of a Lady’, “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
Indeed, there are many for whom a cup of chai is always welcome, at any time of the day, and not just tea time. Some would say, with reference to Great Britain, that there is a whole country of people whose lives revolve around this amber drink. Tea is, perhaps, the only beverage other than wine that has had people waxing poetic and philosophical, and has a comprehensive culture of its own. The world over, fine tea is synonymous with fine living and has been ever since the first tea was brewed five thousand years ago. Tea drinking in India, as well, has evolved over the last few years from the regular cup of ‘chai’ to a heightened sensory experience and a statement of style. It is against this backdrop that Sublime House of Tea was born.
