For many Indians, their day begins with a cup of tea. Which is why anything related to the beverage tends to grab people’s attention. A recent addition to the list is a viral video that features a man serving tea. While serving tea is not rocket science, however, it is the technique used by this man that has got people talking.
Shared by BBC journalist Megha Mohan, the 40-second clip is of The Chappati Factory in Ponnani, Kerala, where a man takes the tea glass and with a quick movement mixes the three-layer and then serves the glass to his customers. “How tea is served at The Chappati Factory in Ponnani, Kerala,” Mohan tweeted.

Unless physics isn’t functional up there …….So basically he is using his palm to stop the concoction from falling out while inverting the glass ?
