Top 5 Beverages in Maldives – Quench your Thirst in Sunny Maldives

Maldives has a lot to do with hanging out on the beaches. If you are planning to spend most of your days soaking up the sun, here are a few favourite beverages that you would want to get your hands on.


Mint tea over the sea

This drink really does taste as good as it sounds. Served steaming hot, the soothing aroma of mint combined with the refreshing effect of the tea leaves gives you just the right amount of jolt to keep you going all day long. The drink is prepared by first adding a small amount of hot water in a teapot to which green tea, mint and sugar is added. This is then followed by the remaining water all of which are left to brew for about 3 minutes. It is then strained and served as heaven in a teapot. If you are craving for something warm by the sea, the mint tea will not disappoint.


Arabian coffee for the soul

Arabian coffee is so good that it actually has a magical effect even on one's soul. No matter where in the world you come from, you may have stumbled upon the Arabian coffee. An international favourite, this drink is prepared by combining coffee, water, sugar, vanilla, cardamom and cinnamon in a saucepan which is all brought to boil until the flavours infuse with one another. Unlike most other warm drinks the Arabian coffee is not filtered hence the authenticity is strongly felt in every sip.


Simple masala chai

Now, this is a common favourite in many of the Maldives restaurants. It is simple and basic but it has an absolutely soothing effect no matter where in the world you decide to try it from. Even if you are staying in a place like Kurumba Maldives you can always order a cup of masala chai to get a taste of one of the nation's finest beverages. Masala chai is prepared using boiling water and adding cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Next tea leaves are added and the mixture is left to brew for a couple of minutes. Finally, some condensed milk is added and voila, masala chai is ready. If you are looking for a perfect cup of tea to compliment the breathtaking sunset in Maldives, it does not get better than the Masala Chai.



It may seem a bit too ordinary but lemonade is welcome any day in Maldives. It is pretty easy to make this drink because all you need is some lemons, sugar and water. But what really does the trick is the ice. Lemonade is a refreshing drink that will help beat the Maldivian heat. So even on the hottest day, this is the best trick to cool off.


Chocolate Smoothie

A delicious combination of chocolate milk, banana and ice cream, the chocolate smoothie is a perfect drink if you are ever craving for a rich sugary delight. It is quite heavy this drink but it works well as a treat.
