Get the best out of tea leafs
The water boiler for tea is equipped with an inox tea filter. Thanks to this filter you can easily make the best tea.
These stall owners say that one of their long-term demands to the government is that they should not be treated as commercial units and should be given LPG cylinders at lower cost. “Unless our fuel costs are brought down, boiler tea would be thing of the past very soon,” says Muralidharan.
"I use my water boiler for tea at home and D-mug for tea at work."
But what keeps such boiler tea stalls going is the patronage of the customers, some of whom have been coming to the shops for decades. Ravindran, a mechanic by profession who drives all the way from Mudaliarpet to Chinna Subbrayapillai Street for his tea in the morning, says that the flavour that boiler tea provides is unique. “Unless you brew the tea with hot water, you won't get the real flavours. You could easily feel the difference in the body when you have the boiler tea,” he says.
"The temperatures inside the boilers of tea factories are so high,” she said, “they are able to more fully burn the particulate matter and the carbon dioxide so that little is released.”
