Tea-lovers tweet love for hot beverage, with bit of fun

New Delhi


Tea-lovers tweeted their liking for the hot beverage on Twitter on the occasion of International Tea Day on Sunday.

#InternationalTeaDay trended with 10.2K tweets.

A user posted pictures of women labourers who pluck tea leaves, and captioned, "On this #InternationalTeaDay, here is a big shoutout to wonderful, most hardworking, brave unsung women heroes who pluck green tea leaves while facing rain, mist, cold, wild animals to bring us that soothing cup of tea. Join me to take a moment to appreciate their work."

One fan of the beverage posted a meme of Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli pouring tea into a big cup from a kettle. "Hello friends, chai pee lo," read the caption.

Another posted a meme of a popular movie actor Pankaj Tripathi, with the caption: "Alag kism ka nasha hai (It is a different kind of kick altogether)."

"Every day is #InternationalTeaDay," he wrote.

Another meme of Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman had this post: "How much are you crazy for tea?"

Abhinandan: "Once I had gone to Pakistan..."

A user posted picture postcards of tea gardens and wrote: "Nilgiris Tea at its best. India is 2nd largest tea producer in the world with an output of more than 9 lakh tonnes a year & Nilgiris is one of the major hubs of production in the country."

A funny remark by a tea-lover went thus: "#Chai is not good for health.

"Are wo pyar hi kya jo dard na de (that does not lead to heartaches is not love)"

One meme was about no heart beat before intake of tea and another of normal heart beat once one had consumed the hot beverage.IANS
