Monsoon comes with its own surprises. Chilly air, drizzles, and beautiful weather can turn into wind and a heavy downpour any moment. It’s also the best season to enjoy a warm beverage while sitting on your balcony watching a downpour!
That being said, here are a wide variety of monsoon beverages that are perfect for pouring into your thermos bottle or an insulated tumbler and sipping on throughout the day during the rains this year.
Kahwa or the Kashmiri green tea is truly one of the most iconic and beloved hot drinks to enjoy during chilly winters and wild monsoons. Not only does this tea achieved global acclaim, it is also really simple to prepare. Make a batch of this tea with spices and nuts, pour it in an insulated flask, and sip whenever you feel like beating the cold weather with a hot drink. Kahwa is just perfect with its healing properties so it will help boost your immunity as well.
- Kesaria Doodh
Loaded with saffron, dry fruits, and a bunch of other spices that grant it a wonderous yellow color and an amazing aroma, kesariya doodh is a perfect monsoon beverage, one you can sip warm from an insulated tumbler while enjoying the cold weather. It is also ridiculously quick and easy to prepare – it takes less than 5 minutes. Just make a batch and store it in your insulated flask, so you can have a tumbler glass of doodh when you feel like.
- Masala Chai
This is probably the truly most iconic drink associated with our country. It is basically a flavorful tea that is made by brewing black tea in combination with a mixture of aromatic spices and herbs. Masala chai is the country’s answer to the world’s fascination with tea; it is a truly Indian take on tea that is perfect to drink all through the day! Mid-morning at work, early evening post lunch, or post dinner at night, hot masala chai in an insulated tumbler is one beverage that you would enjoy any time, particularly when it is pouring outside!
