As Indians, we don’t take our tea lightly, and if you want to be accepted by us, you shouldn’t either! We are a country that thrives on our daily kadak chai. Whether it’s the usual morning tea or the ‘cheat’ at the corner shop next door, we can’t imagine a day without a sip of tea. And we are often delighted when people from other cultures and countries take our favorite drink and try it out in their own way, it’s all fun and game, unless – you did it wrong. Recently, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a prominent Indian-American neurosurgeon, a popular TV personality, and CNN’s chief medical reporter, taught his daughters how to mix tea. This recipe is a family legacy passed down for generations, and it was all great, until, it wasn’t!
While the video begins with a nostalgic note with Dr Sanjay explaining that the cups he is using are his mother’s, the internet was lost when he was seen using tea bags instead. for loose tea. But, what excites everyone the most is the final product, when one of Dr Sanjay’s daughters pours the tea into the pot – it looks pale and unlike the tea we see in Indian homes. Our degree. Posted by CNN’s official Twitter account, the video is 3:31 minutes long; watch:

The final product did not please tea lovers on Twitter, and many expressed their displeasure after watching the video. Indians around the world mocked him for westernizing the Indian staple. Many people point out that this is not tea at all:
God, what’s so disgusting!? !! Ugggh… I never thought saah or chai would leave me with a bitter taste after tasting it, but thank you NOT Dr. Gupta.
And many others were bothered by how bland and tasteless the drink looked:
Among the many disgruntled comments, some also pointed out that sharing a piece of the family legacy with their daughters has been something really sweet for Dr. Sanjay:
I really think this is sane. I’m not a great barista (switched to coffee when I moved to the US), but I hope one day I can teach my kids. ???? ️ https://t.co/scTVZGqUDl– Pratiti (slides/writes recommended) (@PratitiTiyas) December 10, 2021
