Us Bengalis have a sort of emotional connection with“chai”. Yes you can be the millennial and call it tea, but chai is the best version for us. And the perfect combination is “chai sutta” that is tea with cigarettes. When it comes to Kolkata, there is a sudden upheaval in the rage of chai sutta. The streets are flanked by numerous small stalls which sells the best “dudh cha” (tea with milk) complimented with a pack of cigarette.Now I’m not a sutta person at all, but the heartwarming combination of tea brewed with cow’s milk with a bit of sugar, served in “matir bhaar” (also known as kulhad or small earthen clay pot) definitely hits the sweet spot. Chai is like the best addiction for us Bengalis. So let me explain how it goes.
