The WeWork India HQ has great coffee on every single floor, thanks to the Blue Tokai beans that they use in their coffee machines. But if you're looking for a cup of chai, all you get is one single Chai Point machine in an unassuming corner of the building.
Of course, if you're looking for a great cup of chai... you get nothing.
However, WeWork does offer a selection of tea bags from Goodwyn which aren't half bad: Tulsi Immunity, Authentic Assam, English Breakfast, Kashmiri Kahwa, Masala Chai.
Over time, I have perfected the method of using the tea bags to produce almost-but-not-quite-entirely-unlike chai.
- Claim a fresh WeWork branded ceramic mug for yourself
- Pick one (1) sachet of sulphurfree sugar and tear it open
- Discard half (½) the sugar in the bin marked "Compost"
- Empty the sugar that remains, in your mug
- Discard empty sugar sachet in the bin marked "Paper and Cardboard"
- Use a coffee machine to get two (2) seconds worth of hot milk
- Vigorously swirl the mug to dissolve the sugar in the milk
- Use the microcomputer stepwise water boiler to fill hot water in the mug
- Ensure that the contents of the mug do not exceed 40% of mug capacity
- Use a wooden stirrer to improve the consistency of the mixture
- Discard stirrer in the bin marked "Paper and Cardboard"
- Pick one (1) sachet of tea bag, preferably Masala Chai
- Tear it open, and take out the tea bag
- Discard the outer shell in the bin marked "Plastic and Metal"
- Completely immerse the tea bag in the mug
- Wait for 2½ minutes
- Take out the tea bag from the mug and discard in the bin marked "Compost"
