I’ll admit that this story began as an ode to One Stripe Chai’s namesake drink, which I fell hard for at the end of September. Still, while I might have originally been drawn to Portland, Oregon–based One Stripe Chai for its, well, chai, the sleeper hit haldi doodh is just as good. “I typically drink haldi doodh at home when I feel a cold coming on,” Jesani says. “When I was growing up, haldi doodh was always a medicinal and wellness drink, so that’s what I’m used to.”Each bag contains about 33 servings. Pulling away from work to whip out my tiny electric hand whisk and make myself a cup of haldi doodh, something to soothe the nerves and warm the belly, to be enjoyed far from the screen—feels like a tiny rebellion.
