'Kulhad: Making Chai Better' - New blog is out on the website.
Wow, thanks! It is interesting how part of the value is the flavor given to the tea from the clay! These cups seem to be destroyed after each use. Do you think there could be any benefit from keeping a single cup and keep using it for the same chai? The clay becomes seasoned - and maybe provide a richer brew? This is the kind of logic some follow when using unglazed clay teapots from china or japan.

This is only based on my limited knowledge and experience, so could be wrong.
A typical household in India drinks their chai in a bone-china cup and not in a kulhad cup. Kulhad chai is usually drunk at railway stations or tea shops, which is why it makes sense to destroy the cup after each use.
If someone drinks it regularly at their home, it is perfectly all right to repeat its usage.
