A cup of chai first thing in the morning, another cup at work with the sutta before lunch, one more at work with the sutta after lunch, shaam waali chai...  

Let's face it, we Indians are OBSESSED with chai. So much so that we've even come up with wine made of Chai. Yup, that's right!

A team of 5 scientists from Assam's Tocklai Tea Research Institute recently launched wine developed from tea in Jorhat.

"The scientists from the department of Mycology and Micro-Biology of the pioneer tea research institute developed 3 varieties of tea wine - CTC wine, Orthodox wine and Green tea wine," Institute Director Dr Anup Kumar Baruah told PTI at the launch. 

The wine is reportedly a "residue-free wine prepared from organic, pesticide-free green tea," and helps in controlling sugar, fights off cold, and prevents dementia, and some cancers, reported HT. 

Well, we love having chai and we also love to drink wine. But the two of them together? 

What do you feel about this invention?
