Enjoying Tea… Indian Style!
Originally uploaded by Harshad Sharma.

Its getting less and less common, but many people use the saucer instead of the cup to drink tea. The cup is used only to hold the tea.

This practice is more common among truck drivers and farmers, my best guess is, because it is easier to blow on the wider surface and bring the boiling hot tea to a more drinkable temperature quickly.

I have not seen this anywhere else, have you?

If you are still guessing, that’s me… and yes, the photo is almost a year old.

I’ll be going to Pune tomorrow (or rather, today – its past midnight while writing this)… and will stop by at this place called Saradwadi for tea – the same place where the photo was taken 🙂 Credits for the photo go to Pritam Sharma (my brother)
