What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

    ..and we say Tee with a captital T of course. A German teacher would it explain as Tee is touchable and you can see the tea bag or the tea leaves.

    Hi Kabir,

    Chai in England tends to be milky and sweet.

    Here's a bonus correction:-

    We call it chai. I enjoy it with my friends, and every sip of chai (Tea) brings back a past of memorable days.

    We call it 'Chaa' in gujarati language. So many people are used to have it every single time.
