The tradition of drinking tea while standing on the road has a long history in India. However, the concept of “chai wala” in the context of a street tea shop became more prevalent during the British colonial era. Nowadays you will find tea seller by every name, engineer tea seller, MBA tea seller etc.
Presently Mr. Anubhav Dubey can be called the No. 1 Chaiwala in India. He is also known as the Kulhadman of India. He is the co-founder of a leading food and beverage company called Chai Sutta Bar.
