BIRGUNJ: Brewing and drinking tea started thousands of years ago in China. It came to Nepal only a few hundred years ago but embedded itself quickly into Nepali culture. Nepali tea grown in Illam and Jhapa has become popular in both national and international markets. Many tea bars have started opening up all across the country where people drink tea to a myriad of conversation topics. Birgunj is no different. If you go around Mahabirsthan or Adarswaisthan Mainroad during the early mornings, you can see a cluster of tea shops on footpath catering to the need of their early-rising customers. These tiny shops have become hubs for critical chitchat amongst the locals.
