Introduction My connection with tea started when I married my planter husband in the mid '80s and moved with him to the tea gardens of the Dooars. 'Seventh Chords' tells the story of our lives in tea. In February 2018, I started the blog 'Indian Chai Stories' because I believe one of the best things about tea life is the story. The most improbable things happen in tea. The raconteur was a stock character in tea - at the club, at your breakfast table, at a dinner party - everywhere. It all changed as people grew older, retired or went away. One rarely meets a storyteller in the gardens these days. You can meet many of them online at 'Indian Chai Stories'. Tea planters and their families are generous souls, and they have shared their stories for the sheer joy of the retelling!! Read stories by the chai ka saabs, memsaabs, baba and baby log on Indian Chai Stories. The blog is updated every two to three days. You will find yourself transported into another world! Cheers to the spirit of Indian Tea!
