Tea (chai) is one drink that India can’t live without. The thick sweet drink is an integral part of the rhythm of life. A Pune based tea seller Chai La is attracting people with selling a unique type of tea ‘tandoori chai’. Yes, you heard it right. The concept of making ‘Tandoori Tea’ is one of its kind in the world. They do so by following an exceptional tea-making procedure. They first roast kulhads in a pre-heated tandoor and then pour semi-cooked tea. As the kulhads are extremely hot, the tea bubbles over. Once done, the beverage gets a smoky flavour much like the tandoori foods that we usually eat.

However, the innovative idea has caused quite a stir on social media. Tea lovers from all across the world have started tweeting their views about Tandoori chai.

Pouring tea into the cup from soil also lends a special earthy flavour to the drink. Customers come pouring into the shop, to experience this rare hot beverage, which has been getting positive reviews from people who have tasted it. Chai La is the only shop that prepares tea in this way.
