Hey!  Have You Tasted Irani Chai?

Do you remember that famous Bollywood song “Aslam bhai mere Aslam bhai, Dubai ka chasma cheen ki chadi aur Irani chai” Though in this song nothing is very famous except Irani Chai. Let me tell you that at one time, Irani chai defined the café culture in Hyderabad, especially the old city. Introduced by settlers from Persia, the beverage and the places serving it evolved into an institution over time. In recent years, the onslaught from Baristas and Cafe Coffee Days has meant that Irani chai’s territory has shrunk. Nevertheless, this teahouse tradition retains its strongholds – around the old city, in small scattered bakeries.

Old Story

There is an interesting story behind Irani chai’s origin in Hyderabad. It is said that Persian immigrants came to Mumbai’s port in the last century and prior to that in search of a better life and to trade. From Mumbai they migrated to pune and then to Hyderabad. Along with them came the concept of Irani chai.

Irani Tea Vs Other Teas

The difference in Irani chai and rest of the tea style made in ivaries in the Indian making process. The tea leaves are boiled in a separate container along with water and milk is also boiled in separate container. Then while serving to the customers they pour in first the milk then the liquid solution made out of tea leaves. This process is seen in many places which still retain that Iranian touch. The taste of Irani chai is the same whether you go in the morning, afternoon or late evening.

Serving Style

Irani chai is mostly served in a white ceramic cup and saucer and often called 90 ml chai after its standard volume. The sweet, milky Irani chai is known for its unique taste and rejuvenating properties.
