In Qatar, Karak is a popular drink that can be enjoyed at any time of day. It is also known as ‘Kadak Chai’, which translates to ‘strong tea’.

Karak is more than just a beverage; it’s an emotion, an excuse to stay a little longer at the corner cafeteria, and a cup of tea that can be enjoyed regardless of the weather.

Plus, with prices starting at QAR 1, karak is sometimes cheaper than water, making it basically a social drink. So Here is a list top places to try a warm cup of karak in Doha.
