Legend has it that the ginger added to their tea gave the notorious dacoits of the Chambal Valley in Madhya Pradesh their loud, robust voices. This chai’s zesty zing makes it a perfect afternoon or early evening drink. Besides having digestion-aiding qualities, this chai is an effective remedy against coughs and colds.
