Full Jar Soda out, Karakki Chaya in; Watch video
After Full Jar Soda took Kerala by storm few months ago, another drink is trying to take over the reins as the most popular drink. This time it’s a hot drink called ‘Karakki Chaya’ (Revolving Tea).
Full Jar Soda became a trend on social media after people started sharing pictures and videos of how the drink is enjoyed. Full Jar Soda is made by taking the mixture of ingredients in a small glass and putting the small glass it into a bigger glass resulting in the drink foaming out. The customers were encouraged to drink the Full Jar Soda in one sip.
The ‘Karakki Chaya’, also known as ‘Karakk Chaya’, is made in a regular tea glass in two layers. On the bottom is the black tea while the cream or milk is on top. The glass is taken in one hand and is rotated in the air in a half circle and back resembling the movement of a windshield wiper. The tea is set in one move which increases the demand for ‘Karakki Chaya’.
Masala tea, tandoori tea and even normal tea can be prepared as Karakki Chaya using the rotating technique.
