QUETTA: A reduction of Rs10 per cup of tea has brought joy to the faces of tea lovers.
The district administration fixed the prices of various items, including setting the price of a cup of tea at Rs20. Earlier, a cup of tea was being sold for Rs30 at different hotels in the city.
“Inflation is on the rise … though the administration woke up late, thanks it did wake up,” Nabeel, Fahim, Iftikhar and Samiullah told The Express.
They urged the administration to keep a check on the rates, saying even now at some hotels, tea was being sold at previous rates.
Tea or coffee? The answer might be genetic
They said it was difficult to survive without tea.
On the one hand where tea price has been reduced, on the other, hotel owner Waseem told Express that “when rates decline, customers increase, but hotel owners are also helpless because when the prices of milk and gas increase, tea will also become costlier”.
“The administration should strictly implement the decision to reduce milk prices,” he added.
