My love for teas began when I was a teenager. My mom used to eat lots of healthy food; she would drink a lot of Chai (traditional Pakistani tea) every day; and, herbal teas used to make her go crazy with delight. As a teenager, I wanted to experiment less with other teas because I was too used to the Chai. Every morning, I used to drink the Chai my mom used to make for us. During the evening, I would ask some other elders to make me the same tea. Its a fact that although I was addicted to this tea, I still did not enjoy the ones that were made by other elders. Over time, I started noticing that I was unable to be fully happy throughout the day if I missed my morning Chai. This proved true for my adult version as well. I think I fell in love with the Pakistani Chai because of my mom’s touch.

I have never drunk alcohol in my entire life simply because I am a Muslim. Before I start discussing all the teas I have drank so far, I must comment that I believe that my taste buds are smarter because I don’t drink. I developed a taste for herbal teas as an adult when I started managing my need to have only the Chai my mom makes. I mean, I cannot depend on this tactic at all since my mom is pretty old now; and, my bladder does not like caffeine anymore.
