Because, folks, there are real-deal cups o' chai to be had all over this city. It was only a matter of finding 'em.

I have a thing for little local tea houses, despite the fact that I actually don’t love tea all that much. I guess I’m so infatuated with these places because they’re just so ridiculously and undeniably charming.
