Besides being the un-official national drink of Qatar, Karak is a favourite drink of both Qataris and expats alike. The pic above (by amitoon) is a cute illustration of chapati and karak.

What is Karak?

It is a strong and dark tea that is mellowed with full-cream milk and warm spices.

Where is it from?

Karak tea was introduced to the Gulf through the Indian Sub-Continent. 

Who makes the best karak in Qatar?

Well, that is an interesting question - which is your favourite karak spot?

Prob with the cafeterias is, if one day they serve good karak tea, the other day it would be literally so pathetic that you wouldnt want to try again from there. Karak from Karak and Chapati in Katara is although maintaining their standard. Still not good enough but better than most. I am still searching for new cafeterias lol

There is this quaint little tea shop near the Toyota signal, Old Airport area. 'Al Manar' Tea stall. Its a tiny shop.. You would miss it if you weren't looking for it. But they serve authentic Karak tea!
