Tea and Indians have a special relationship. It is that inalienable part of our life that most of us cannot do without. It is not only a drink for us, but a ritual, a celebration, and even a diversion from the everyday monotonous concerns. Tea, often known as chai, is a popular beverage in India and we cannot wait to start our day with a cup of tea. However, what if you could merge fitness with your daily cup of ecstasy.
