Some Chai, a lot of Conversation, and a Canvas

Brewing a perfect cup of tea requires patience, practice, and preparation. The tea master Krishna has all of these qualities and much more.

His tea house stands out from the line of shops in Bundi, the walls sprinkled with colorful doodles and graffiti. They are souvenirs by travelers from everywhere. A vibrant and ever changing canvas of color and expression.

Guests are drawn, intrigued to know more.

As the tea brews, Krishna hands you a box of paints and some brushes so you too can leave your mark on the wall. He graciously encourages you to express yourself.

Then comes the tea, exuding aromas of a spice box – ginger, cardamom and maybe a hint of pepper.

As the tea is sipped, the conversations ebb and flow like the tides of the ocean. Strangers in the shop can become friends.
