Chai Shai/
Cardamom-basil-ginger flavored Tea/
Home remedy for Cough & Cold

Hi Frnds,

Hope you all are doing well. Its for all tea lovers like my hubby. All he need in the morning is a cup of tea and newspaper (i hate when he takes newspaper in his hand). Hope he is not reading this. I never drank tea, so do not know the exact flavor of a good tea. i tried so much, that one day my husband will say wow nice tea. but i felt that it happens rarely. Then I become determined to make tea for him which will make him nod his head (if he likes anything he just nod his head and see me).

So tell me your version of your hubby's fav tea or coffe. till them enjoy my version of tea.
Enjoy chai in every morning.
