    Yeah, I know. But if you just say Chai to most people they don't know what you mean.

    I guess that would probably me a more accurate spelling. Either way I've always been taught to pronounce it "Cha" though some of the older people tend to pronounce it more "Chai"

    Hey JKDC, What's this Chai tea then? I think someone earlier in this thread mentioned Russia? Russian Tea? =S

    Ok, just checking. My Hindi is limited to "tea", "bread", and "thank you very much". At one time I had the noble goal of reading the Bhagavad Gita and several other religious texts in their original languages, but never had the time. It's amazing how few hours in the day there are to do the things that really matter.

    Heh. Mines not much better. I can just about hold the most basic of conversations with my grand parents.

    I picked up alittle more punjabi last year whilst studying a punjabi martial art "Ghat-ka" oh man what a crock of **** that was. Minus the fee's think Bullshido personified, complete with nationalistic crap.

    Yeah. Though I always wanted to pick up the Sikh sword/stickfighting stuff if I ever got the chance.

    I love Indian culture, food, etc. I've got a 4' dancing Shiva in the foyer of my house and a Tapestry featuring Lord Ganesha on the wall adjacent to it.

    Damn... I'd kill for some naan right now. Fucking mid-west.

    I'm not saying the style is BS. I've seen a school about 30 miles from here that was awesome. The older students were going at it dog brother's style and it looked cool, sword and shield, two handed sword, stick etc.

    Where I was the lessons were 10% stupid exercises 30% nationalistic ramblines and 60% BS techniques and ego stroking.

    Funnily enough I don't eat alot of Indian food, though I tend to put chillies on everything else. Naans I love though, if cooked right.

    Growing up I loved alot of the Indian mythology. And yes, I love Indian tea =)

    ???

    Thai tea where I live costs $0.75 for a glass with free refills... You're just getting ripped off.

    By the way, Thai Tea has got to be the best tea there ever was to exist, ever.

    Also for those of you who are way to lazy to make your own Thai Tea, there are packets that you can buy from your local asian supermarket that you just boil water, throw it in and throw some milk in there and voila, instant crappy thai tea that'll tie you over.

    Thai Tea Packets

    It's close but when you make it for real it's 10x better.

    The thing with making your own bubble tea is that when you cook the sago pearls, you have to watch it so it doesn't stick to the bottom and burn and make surey you cook it thouroughly, otherwise the outside is soft and the inside is hard. And then you have to store it in a sugar syrup otherwise they all stick together. I don't know, I think it's easier to just buy it. :\

    that's another factor...

    it's not really worth the extra $0.25 to make it myself.
