What is Jaggery Tea?

The word chai just means tea. Jaggery chai, on the other hand, is a hot beverage consumed during winters. Jaggery = Gud | Chai = tea. i.e "Gud ki Chai".

Gud ki chai is an aromatic tea, it is served in small glasses and it's called "cutting chai" in India because it's so strong ("cutting" is the transliteration of the Hindi word for "half"). The green cardamom gives an earthy and comforting flavor. The fennel seeds are good for digestion.
