Adrak and Masala chai(Ginger Masala Mix Chai)

Chai is Refreshing and stress releasing. In the morning it gives me a kickstart on the otherside in the evening , a cup of chai do wonders releasing my all day long stress. Necessary to mention, Chai has several types "mamuli chai", "chalu chai", "masala chai", "herbal chai", "darjeeling tea", "green tea","Cough reliving Kada"and "The ghar wali adrak ki chai(Ginger Tea)".

In general at our home we prepare the "The ghar wali adrak ki chai(Ginger Tea)". Whilst at the kiosk we can find the very tasty"chalu chai",Hotels and resturant specializes in "Masala tea", Grandma and kids would always prefer the "herbal tea", And during cold and cough it becomes a medicine which we call kada(greatly helps in reliving cough ) .
