Nair and the art of making "chaya"

Was just wondering what Nair tea is exactly about...
(1) Does it refer to the method used to make the tea? - Putting tea into a filter, dipping the filter in a utensil of hot boling water (thus makin black tea) and then adding milk and sugar to this and subsequently mixing them by pouring them from a great height some 5-6 times to mix it up properly...this is a proper art
(2) Is it the characterisitic taste of the tea?
(3) Nair tea = Tea made by an authentic Nair???

Dunno wat trigerred off this thought process...mebbe it was the effect of the Nair in Alai Payuthey and the Athicas tea which made me wonder about this...
