"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    ..and we say Tee with a captital T of course. A German teacher would it explain as Tee is touchable and you can see the tea bag or the tea leaves.

    Hi Kabir,

    Chai in England tends to be milky and sweet.

    Here's a bonus correction:-

    We call it chai. I enjoy it with my friends, and every sip of chai (Tea) brings back a past of memorable days.

    We call it 'Chaa' in gujarati language. So many people are used to have it every single time.
