Viral video: Korean blogger tries chai, lassi and other Indian drinks

Delicious Indian cuisine holds a sweet place in the hearts of every desi foodie. From north to south, east to west – there are countless delicious culinary delights the country has to offer. Not only Indian food but even drinks have a plethora of options to choose from. Indian drinks help us stay hydrated and also refresh us from within. Recently, a Korean blogger tried several Indian drinks and gave his opinions on the same. The video went viral and was widely discussed online. Watch the full video here:

Shared on YouTube by Korean blogger Inwook, the clip has garnered over 14 million views and 1.2 million likes. The video was shared in the popular “YouTube Shorts” section.

First, the blogger started by tasting the classic Indian chai. “At first, I couldn’t understand why Indians were so obsessed with Chai. But after taking a sip of it, I changed my mind,” he said in the video. “Slightly sweet and healing,” he added. He also said it made him dance with a random guy on the street!

Next, the Korean blogger tried the Sweet Lassi made with yogurt. He said the drink made him “speechless” as he was very fond of yoghurt and therefore also enjoyed Lassi. Third on the list was Nimbu Pani or Indian lemonade. The blogger said he prefers Korean lemonade over Indian lemonade. And the last was Jaljeera which was made with Indian spices but the blogger said it was not spicy at all.

Jaljeera was also one of the drinks the blogger tried.

Foodies have reacted to the Korean blogger’s advice on Indian drinks. “Well, that’s an acquired taste,” one user said in the comments, while another said, “When he had the last drink, I was literally like ‘nooooo!’ Indian, I know not everyone can stand this drink!” Another wrote, “Thank you for coming to India, trying our food and giving feedback!”
