Roadside tea stalls are famous in Tamil Nadu for multiple reasons. A bench on which people sit with that day’s newspaper, discuss politics loudly with a steaming glass of tea in hand and the tea master who mixes the tea in a big steam boiler from incredible heights is one of the best sights to behold.
