A small village in Kashmir Pakistan, is where this chai story all began.

 

As the sun starts to rise, Begum opens her eyes. She walks over a mile everyday, to the local market where she spends the day. She is known as the lady who makes the best chai in town, where people come from all around. With a recipe that is over one hundred years old, kept in the family and never told. She sits at her stall, just her and a pot, fresh milk, tea leaves and a handful of spice, she mixes the lot. People begin to patiently wait, the numbers begin to accumulate.

 

A scent begins to fill the air, an aroma of spice, love and care. It’s the smell of chai everywhere, spreading throughout the market square. Ready to serve and brewed to perfection, a glass of chai is an immediate affection. Crowds of people gather around, to taste the best chai in town. As the sun starts to set on another day, she packs up her things and gives a wave. Now this chai story has come alive, Begum’s secret recipe has finally arrived.
