Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has repeatedly highlighted that he used be a tea seller early in his life, was today treated to a special Japanese "chai" by his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe as per a tradition in this country.

Modi sat on the floor with knees bent as is the tradition in Japan and drank tea from a special cup. Abe sat next to him to share the moment. The two also had tea cakes along with the Japanese green tea. Abe then told Modi about tea made in 1950 during the visit of his grandfather Nobusuke Kishi to India as the Prime Minister. The traditional Japanese tea is powdered green and the utensils are called Wamono (Japanese things). The Chai pe Charcha preceded the official substantive talks between Modi and Abe.
