When videos of strange culinary combos were posted online, opinions often remained divided. Hundreds of viral food combinations, including Chilly ice cream, Mirinda golgappa, and Fanta omelet, disgusted thousands of people. But some of them have also received appreciation.
The latest addition to the list of bizarre foods is "dragon fruit chai". Yes, you read it right. It's not a "dragon fruit juice" but a "dragon fruit chai."
On social media, a video of a boy in Bangladesh selling dragon fruit chai has gone viral. The Great Indian Foodie, an Instagram account that features food-related videos from all throughout India, posted the video. In the video, a teenager is seen preparing milk tea with dragon fruit pulp.
As shown in the video, the tea vendor added dragon fruit extract to hot tea before pouring it into a glass tumbler. He continues by stirring a tablespoon of condensed milk into the boiling tea, which takes on a rosy hue.
"Pink Dragon Fruit wali chai ! Ye interesting reel aapke liye all the way from Bangladesh (Pink Dragon Fruit tea, this interesting reel is for you all the way from Bangladesh)," read the caption of the Instagram post.
Since being posted on September 18, the video has received over 104,969 views and over 2300 likes on Instagram.
The users gave mixed reactions to this new, unusual beverage combination.

One perplexed user asked, "Bhai kya maza aata h aise chai peene mai" (Brother, how does drinking this tea make you feel?)
Another commented, "What did I just see?
