Tea is often referred to as a soul drink, meant to be consumed when you have the chance to slow down, pull back and enjoy your surroundings. It is one of the most popular beverages in the UAE and for a good reason too. Its refreshing taste is enjoyed by people from all colors and countries. Here is a list of the 7 best places to find your perfect cup of karak tea:
7. Tea Junction
An oldie but goldy, this chai place can be found in Dubai, Bur Dubai and Ajman.
They have over eight different Chai blends that differ depending on the choice of spices and herbs – moon chai, spiced chai, cutting chai and more.
6. Filli Cafe
This signature tea cafe is extremely popular among locals for a get-together over a cup of karak tea or ten. You’ve definitely seen this karak cup around due to it’s signature orange colour and unique logo. They’re found all over the UAE and guarantee that a cup of tea makes everything better.
5. Cha Cha Chai
A cafe with a ring to its name, Cha Cha Chai has almost five outlets in Dubai alone – Sheikh Zayed Road, Silicon Oasis, Business Bay, Barsha and Deira.
Their outlets are also located inside many of the Dubai metro stations. So you can make a quick pit stop and enjoy a cup for yourself. They also have really yummy combo meals if you’re looking to keep your tummy full.
This restaurant pays the ultimate tribute to the regional drink, because the outside decor of it screams out TEA. Located in Umm Suqeim, this tea joint has the iconic red borders and stripped red and white banner above the door. Not to mention the over-sized tea pictures plastered on the walls.
3. Karak & Rigag
Pair your karak tea with UAE’s national crepe-form sandwich from this restaurant. You can fill your rigag with just about anything and it’s the best crunchy substitute to bread – chicken shawerma, cheese chips oman, nutella banana and so much more.
This Jumeirah tea classic cafe is the perfect pit-stop if you’re on the main road in the area. Stay cozy in your car as you pull up to pick up a cup of tea while you cruise around the city. A big plus if you park at Kite beach to enjoy the waves while you sip on your warm drink.
1. Project Chaiwala
Project Chaiwala tops the list because of it’s cool concept – it serves the signature hot tea by chaiwalas in an kiosk, giving you an authentic street experience in Al Serkal. This is the closest way you’ll get to experience karak chai served in the streets.
