There is no drink superior to chai. No no, this is not a debate. For some of us, our lives would be incomplete and dull without our daily dose of chai. You could even say we’re obsessed with it.

What kind of a place doesn’t serve chai?

14. You love to drink your chai slowly, appreciating every sip. You might even make that “shhrpppp” sound that people get annoyed with, but is music to your ears.

15. You’ve definitely poured your chai into a saucer and slurped it.

Did you know that was the actual purpose of saucers back in the 18th century? #mindblown


16. If your chai has gone cold, you’ll get another freshly made cup. None of that, heating it in the microwave nonsense.

Can’t hear you, too busy enjoying my chai.


18. You think that the chai is the only good thing the British ever did (although we perfected the art of making chai).

So go get yourself a cup of chai (if you’re not already sipping on some of that liquid gold already).
