I am wondering how Indians drink their tea. I know they drink a lot of it, and they are the world's second largest producer/exporter of tea. I enjoy tea now and then, as a change to my coffee, and I usually drink it the way that British people do--with milk added to it. (But I don't usually add sugar, as many of them do.) I know that chai tea is from India, and I think that the directions on our American boxes tell how they would drink that, but I am wondering how authentic that is. I believe they add milk and sweeten it. I actually like chai this way, because I think the spices are drawn out by the sugar. This is the only tea I add sugar to, and is actually one of my favorites, though I tend to drink it more in the winter. So, how do Indians drink their tea? Do they add milk and/or sugar to it all the time, like the British, or only certain types like chai? And will they laugh at me for drinking it differently?
