Tea is haram, so I don't see why this topic is of relevance.. 

concept of haram is muslim ... so try again with explanation in gurmat terms please then maybe a discussion can be had . Yes chai as made in India with overboiling of leaves and loads of sugar and dairy is not the best .

Sant Baba Nand Singh Ji used to drink tea, i think it just depends on how people want to live, Tea is about as "haram" as Preeto put it as milk.


I think Baba Isher Singh Ji used to too, it just honestly depends on the lifestyle people picked, I doubt our diets match up exactly bit to bit to the diets of Sikhs in the 16-18th centuries.

Tea has been banned in akj n taksal since the 1920s cuz the tea leaves were given tamaku (tobacco) di 'poth' ਪੁਠ   i dont know wat it means. I think some part of tobacco was used in maybe drying, cultivating process. As soon as that was discovered back then, it was outlawed by sikhs. I dont know if the tobacco thing is still used today
