Yes, it is a tiny item in most people's daily life. Here, it costs (INR) Rs.3/- (About $0.06) at open tea stalls and it pulls about 20% of daily business turnover in the market! Just at Rs.3/- a person is free from work tensions till the cup remains in hand for about ten minutes! A state of being mentally elevated is felt for next few hours and that is the charm that attracts people to many open air tea stalls from 5am till 11pm! Are you a part of this in your day to day life? Please share your views...

Hello my friend Mitraa Ji, Tea is part of our life and normally we both take at least four such cups at home and outside, first after getting up, next aftyer B'fast, 3rd at 12 O'clock and fourth at 5 PM and 5th at 7 PM apart from visits by guest to give them company. This is cheapest way to get energy in the body and referesh ourselves. Take care. May God bless You and have a great time.

I drink tea all the time, but I make it at home because of the fact that it is so much cheaper to prepare my tea at home as opposed to going out and getting a cup of tea. I don't so much find that it mentally envelopes me as I find that it is something that tastes good to drink and something that I can drink that costs next to nothing. Perhaps the difference for me is because of the fact that I drink iced tea instead of hot tea that people in the rest of the world drink.

I do not know what an open tea stall is, but I would probably go to them if we had them. Tea is my favorite drink and I enjoy both hot and cold tea. It seems that tea is getting harder to find at times as we enjoy instant tea for our iced tea and we use a Kroger brand and we are unable to find it currently. I do not care for Lipton or Nestea, but I may have to use one of them now.

Although I am a coffee lover I do enjoy a good cup of tea but I will not pay for one in a café because it is expensive and most of the time not very nice, I like to make my tea at home with my favourite brand of tea. I don’t mind paying for drinks like cappuccinos and lattes etc. that don’t usually taste as good at home but tea I like to make myself and I agree that it is a nice de-stresser!

Here it must be around $3. for a cup. Depends on the type of tea you have also. If you go for the more specialized tea, then expect to pay more. I drink coffee myself....that sure gets me to relax.

Hi Mitraa! I drink a cup of tea with milk every morning. I think it's a good way for me to start the day. It's also nice to drink tea in the evening when I want to relax. Cheers!

hi Mitraa oh my six cents here in the US a cup of tea costs more like a couple of dollars in a cafe while if you brew your own at home you can drink a lot of tea for two dollars. I love green tea hot or iced myself and make it at home. Here in Gold Crest we are served'ice tea twice a day. I do love the stuff as it has great flavor and good anti oxidants in it for our good health.

Open air stalls is common features in my country. They are doing brisk business here cos of the popularity of this type of fastfood that the locals and tourists usually go. They are not only serving finger licking foods but the prices are far cheaper than those sold in the restaurants. I like to unwind myself in open air eateries as they have variety of foods sold that could tempt the stomach.

I now managed to be a greetea drinker. During my busy day, I enjoy greentea. Although it is very bitter, that's OK for me. Greentea is recommended to serve without sugar. I consume it since it is more healthier than coffee. It costs about 2 cents per bag. Relaxing myself, greentea really calms me down. It helps me find new idea.

Such a charming peaceful life. In Australia you pay $4.00 for a cup of tea, and you stress for the next two hours over the fact that you could have made 100 cups of tea for that price, at home.
