The Lonely Planet starts out its guide on India by stating that “India is an assault on the senses“.
What is meant is that India is so much it can be overwhelming. But I think, if you’re considering giving a typical Indian gift, you might consider typical Indian tea. Or “Chai” as they shout in the trains and on the streets of Indian cities.
Browse through a selection of the finest Indian teas and while you’re at it, you might find something else very Indian that you’re interested in.
