"Better be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one" - Ancient Chinese proverb
I am the Chai Wallah and this is a new blog that is being developed over the coming months.
I would like to share my passion for tea with you as well as my thirst for alcohol free wines, beers and ciders.
My other favourite activities include sport (mainly rugby), cycling and travel.
Tea is the worlds second most consumed beverage after water. It is simple to brew, there' a wide choice of types and flavours and it is good for health.
I was brought up in Malaysia from a baby until I was eleven years old and later spent three years in Hong Kong. I was brought up on the teas of China, India and Boh Tea of Cameron Highlands in Malaysia. The images at the top of this page are of the Cameron Highlands tea gardens in Malaysia.
My web site has been on a very slow burn to date. I've now decided that as of 21 July, 2016, I'm going to ramp it up and add content on a regular basis.
Tea and alcohol free wines, beers and cocktails are a great way to relax and enjoy life without alcohol.
Why alcohol free stuff? The answer is that I have been having treatment for problems with my digestive tract and my consultant surgeon wants me to follow a suitable diet and keep within the recommended alcohol units to help reduce the pain and irritation.
If I have to eat healthily and cut down on alcohol, I might as well bang on about healthy eating and alternatives to the booze.
