Though I was born and raised in Guwahati, I love green tea but in a regular basis if someone offers me an option between two, green tea or A-One Cutting Chai , I will always go for an “A-One Cutting Chai”. I must say you will get this Chai only in India and nowhere else in the world. I cant explain the happiness and joy of having it.. There goes my story….
When I go for a ride or journey early morning, I always go for a kadak Cutting Chai from a nearby stall to break my sleep. I love to sleep a lot so a cup of masala tea does the best to me. It boosts me up and give me energy to work all day. There are different types Chai I must say.. : they are plain milk chai, Masala chai, Ginger chai, Black Pepper chai. My favorite one is Masala Chai. When I am sick I used to have Masala chai which soots me well. Hostel days were the best where you go out with your friends at night at around 2 o’ clock and grab a cup of hot masala chai on the nearest street stall. These are the best memories that you can have.
“Cutting Chai is made of milk and tea blended with sugar. The magic is by adding the required amount of spices in it.”
During my days of travelling, I never miss to click a picture of my Chai. Pakoras are my favorite snack to have with my Chai. yumm.. I am hungry by just thinking about it now.. :p
Chai is mostly served::
1. in a glass,
2. served in a small steel katora with a steel glass so that we can pour the Chai on the katora and have it known as Katora chai and
3.served in earthen cups known as Kullad Chai.
4. served in a plastic glass. (I hate the most.)
I love to have my Chai in a glass. Tell me which is your favorite way of having your Chai on the comment section below. Also mention the type of Chai that you like the most on the comment section below.
I miss Chai stalls on the streets who used to pour and play with the Chai with two glases on both of their hands. Their act seems to be easy but its not. I tried at home once doing it. Did you? But I failed. My Chai was all over the place. Its very hard to find those types of tea stalls now a days. And if yes then I am not so lucky as you but I really miss it. Now a days they normally they make their tea on a steel or copper vessel and serves Chai. Kolkata Chai was the best till now. I had it a try outside the Howrah Railway station where they serve it on a earthen cups.
Its funny that I am writing this blog having a cup of Cutting Chai..
