“A cup of tea keeps the monotony away”, this seems to be the life-mantra of one of my dear friend. It appears that this lady has an infinite appetite for Tea – Chai in Hindi. She can have it any time anywhere, and with anyone*-pun intended. Without tea, sometimes I feel, she tends to loose the purpose of her life. 😛
It might freak you out; just from why the the calculations perspective, but on an average a tea break in office is at least a half an hour affair. This half an hour multiplied by a regular tea-enthusiast’s craving for tea; which will be somewhere around 2-3 cups a day, is in my opinion a considerable time loss. So I, most of the times avoid such breaks and in turn tea altogether.
Then-like a savior of tea sales- we came up with the concept of Quick Chai; abbreviated to QC to give it a cult feel.;) Quick Chai or QC makes tea drinking an unplanned activity wherein anyone can get up any time, ask the other person to stall his/ her work and together rush towards the tea stall. This saves the time preceding and succeeding a tea-break as more than often these breaks are taken at non-regular times; say around 11:00 am, when not many people are willing to go. Hence, tea served and time saved**.
Go, get yourself a QC ! 😀
