Every place has a chai story. The Yemeni one I find very fascinating. Apart from it's wonderful and mood lifting flavours, what struck the most is the way it is served. In cans of condensed milk. Why? Because why would they throw it away once the milk has been poured onto bubbling tea. makes sense to re-use it one more time. Right?
This is "Shahi Haleeb". Tea with milk in they yemeni dialect and that's how it is served when you buy it from the streets for takeaway.
