New in Town # 3

Doodhpatti is an instant tea mix launched recently in the city by Benlays. Packed in a small “Cupstick” are natural tea extracts, milk powder and sugar, just add about 150ml of hot water and a cup of Strong Doodh patti Chai is ready to drink.

Although the tea is really strong and tasty but for me who used to drink about 400ml of tea in one go the 150 ml cup looks a bit too tiny, apart from a the small size serving the cost that is Rs.10/per cup feel’s a bit too expensive as well and besides all we’ll still need the good old teabags for sugar conscious people, so in my opinion the idea is really not practical. What do you say ?

    Sounds disgusting….Doodh Pati is supposed to be hot to taste good.

    Who said anything about a Cold Doodh Patti ? And yes it tastes better then Pathan’s Doodh Patti :).

    They should make a version with a sugar substitute such as Canderel or Splenda or Equal or any other sugar substitute. How many teaspoons of sugar are in each packet, would you know?

    In doodh patti, there is doodh and patti, but in this case the doodh is dry, so it needs water “as it has in liquid doodh”, But i bet it cannot taste any better than the pathan’s doodh patti. Guys I would seriously recommend, try the doodh patti of
    “Quetta Unabi”, near NIPA in the street of “Haji Allah Wala Biryani”, They also have arrangements for shisha! its just the regular pathan dhaba, but a great place to chill in the night shuit pajamas!

    Nadir, will check the Quetta Unabi out this weekend..

    cool! i dont drink tea anymore!! :( but if you say its better than the pathan’s doodh patti, then i guess i need to try it. Tea Bag tea is not tea at all yaar! its a big dhabba on the name of tea :@


  16. IllusionFS (unregistered) on September 6th, 2006 @ 8:03 pm

    ENN: Are you referring to the one opposite that ‘dupattay rangnay wala’ ? If yes, it totally rocks man.


  17. Sameeh (unregistered) on September 7th, 2006 @ 4:44 pm

    Any chance it comes to USA? We miss Doodhpatti. There is no dhaaba here and in Restaurants they serve regular tea bag tea :(


  18. mansoor (unregistered) on September 7th, 2006 @ 6:10 pm

    come to think of it.. most of the the dhaba’s i’ve been to recently have upped their prices, to Rs. 6 for ‘saada chai’ to Rs. 10 for doodh patti..

    And the cup size is even less than 100 ml!

    The viability of this product is starting to make sense… plus! no headache of throwing away the patti :p

    we have a product here, by lipton, called LIPTON MILK TEA, i have been using it since two years now, ite very nice, whenever i come to pakistan, i always take a few with me. however freshly made tea has a taste of its own, i just think of it as a variety in taste, variety is a good thing :-)
    its so easy now to prepare tea for visitors in your office. (dont have to ask (read BEG) that chaprassi, who says, HR says only three time tea in a day!!!
