An elderly Rajasthani enjoys a very hot cup of masala chai

Masala chai is a flavoured tea beverage made by brewing black tea with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices, milk, sugar and herbs. There is a sweetness and strong-bodied flavour to this classic drink unlike any other cup of tea. Chai is the lifeblood, the national drink and served almost everywhere in Rajasthan all the times of day or night.

A glass of steaming creamy spiced liquid is the perfect antidote for getting started into the days activities which pervades the social and cultural atmosphere of the country. It's on the fly snapshot of street life in Jaipur.
