Lebu Chai in Gariahat

There’s no restaurant or café selling this; the best lebu chai is honestly sold by venders who walk the streets of Gariahat. If you stand outside the Gariahat Pantaloons in the evening or outside Lake Mall, you’re likely to come across one of them. They do a concoction of steaming hot black tea with lemon and black salt.
