Masala chai (spiced tea) is intrinsic to the rhythm of life in india. here in jodhpur, locals love their morning cuppa. steaming pots of tea made with milk, cardamom, cloves, sugar, ginger, and tea leaves are everywhere to be seen. no day begins without a tiny cup (or two) of spiced tea, known as cutting chai, in local parlance. even more this becomes a gold mine for street life.
