Chai karak is currently one of the most popular drinks in the UAE. In the early mornings or late at night, you will with no doubt get caught up in the endless queue of people waiting to get their karak tea. It's a must try when in town.
If you're wondering what's so special about karak tea, we've pinned it down for you:
It gives you a reason to see your long lost friends
And makes for a great snack, especially when served in a biscuit
Or with chocolate chip cookies
It makes your car cruises all the more merrier
It's even reached places like London
Once you start it, a nonstop craving for it occurs
You know it's serious when 'karaking' becomes a verb
& separation anxiety begins to eat you alive
Because it helps get your mind off things
And gives you just the right boost in the A.M.
You'll do anything to protect your karak
Karak tea knows nothing of portions
And makes a great complement to your cigar
And keeps you calm no matter the issue
For some, it's the first thing needed in the morning
Or late in the night
No matter the weather
It'll always be on your mind
Because ignorance is bliss
