‘Chai’ or Tea is a pure Indian beverage sensation. Here are two stories to make this simple thing really special.

Here’s the deal behind its name, when the Persians visited Hyderabad; and the time is the one this special beverage was starting to originate; they bought along with this tea, without the basic milk in it. Their time while being here they adopted the staple foods of the city; the dairy products that were so largely found. Then was what? ‘The heavenly pour that makes the best tea for you today.’ When the two of these ingredients met each other from two different states of different countries it got its name; hence, The Hyderabadi Iranian Tea.

And here is my story-

My mother is a big fan of bed tea who keeps disturbing the folks of the house in the morning, but finally makes herself her own tea. We being moody little kids just make her happy once in a while. Those early mornings when we put up silent kitchen drills and she is sound asleep; and that big surprise smile even if she knows our motive. The real jar of happiness for our family – Chai Diaries. This morning I am definitely trying The Hyderabadi Iranian Tea recipe for her.
