It’s TEA Break with Tea – CHAI PE CHARCHA – GPO, FORT

Any day any time it’s chai over tea and tea over chai. 
Yes, the addition of milk and spices brings in the difference between chai and tea
this what geetu loves. 


A disclaimer seems like the best way to start this post before getting to my experience at CHAI PE CHARCHA . And being a TYPICAL PAKKA South Indian I feel MY LIFE  and coffee share equal proportion in my body. 

I think this is the answer to all those cafes cropped up all around the city. The sheer variety of teas will delight you! The quantity of the beverages is generous.. The ambience is nice with all the aromas of the teas surrounding you..and it’s a good place to have a nice cuppa!






There are tea enthusiasts at MUMBAI and the blooming cafes with equal significance to tea and coffee is one evident example. With an ardent tea fan at home, I have started to develop a connection with my cup of tea. It was also hard to content my excitement when the outlet of CHAI PER CHARCHA made their way to MUMBAI….



And the icing to the cake was the tasting session  as a master chef finalist where I got the insight about their different types of tea. What impressed the most is the food pairing in accordance with the tea. Also differentiating the varieties of tea isn’t an easy job. So the idea of matching the tea and food impressed me the most.no more words ..



Let’s get down to the tea business, is a LEMON GRASS TEAwith mild sweetness and LEMON GRASS  fragrance that was complimented perfectly with yummy Bun Maska. The bun maska is a sole winner, a simple combination of  bun, butter .


Next came the most famous MASALA Tea, I never knew there are different varieties of  tea as well as it never interested me, maybe the word ‘healthy’ that comes along with  tea doesn’t excite me. I did taste the ADHARAK TEA and I liked it, the hit of spices and addition of GINGER did make it taste good. This tea was paired with GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH , 
AND HOT PIPING PAKODA
NEXT I HAD KARA KARA FIRANGI KAKRA FOR A NICE WEATHER , AS IT WAS RAINING OUT SIDE.

YUMMY CHOCLATE PARATHA WAS A CLEAR WINNER IN TODAYS TASTING SESSION.. IT WAS DROOLINGGGGG.



The smiles were back when I saw mud pot carrying (Kullad) Chai along with a plate of crispy and hot Pakoda. This combination is a default hit.  I tried the GARLIC BREAD  and ALOO PARATHAS 

And I appreciate the way they present the tea with details like name, ingredients, steeping time and health benefits. Overall a tea-licious experience. Exactly how a cafe should look and it’s done so well. 

The concept of pairing tea and food is brilliant.



I REALLY APPRECIATE MR. ANIL, FOR HIRING AND RECRUITING HEARING AND TALKING IMPAIRED PEOPLE FOR NOT ONLY THIS BRANCH, BUT ALL THE OTHER CHAI PE CHARCHA…

ITS A VERY NOBLE WORK THAT ANIL AND HIS PARTNER DOING.. HATS OFF TO U BOTH..
 The quality of tea and the style of presenting along with the quantity gets a thumps-up. 
OMG.. AWWWWWWWWWW IS THAT COOL

 India is largest consumer of tea in the world and one of the most common sights on any busy street is the chai-tapri or mobile chai vendors catering to millions of tea lovers in the country. 


And from this was born the concept of a Tea-cafe which was non existent in India few years back although the coffee-cafes were already very popular. 
CHAI PE CHARCHA is the brainchild of tea enthusiasts n entrepreneurs  

Mr. Anil kohli who want to bring the best of teas to the Indian consumer. 
The challenge must have been to introduce teas which would suit the local palette as in India the tea is boiled with milk n water rather than steeped in hot water.
But CHAI PE CHARCHA  manages to strike a perfect balance in retaining the originality of international teas and appealing to local taste buds. 
This particular outlet is a nice place to try their extensive menu of almost 20 varieties of tea n food items like tea infused signature dishes. 

For anyone who wishes to try out the wide variety of fine teas from around the world this is the place to be.
Whether its the exotic DETOUX  tea which is one of the finest n most subtle teas or the special and classic selection of the worlds best and also the beloved local chai’s as well, CHAI PE CHARCHA has it all. 


Also the very latest ek garam chai ki pyal  is on the menu. 
All in all a nice tea cafe to enjoy n sample some of the most uncommon teas along with good food and good service.

THERE IS FACILITY FOR TAKE AWAY  HOT PIPING CHAI WITH BEAUTFUL PACKS WHICH WILL BE HOT FOR 60 MINUTES.
TAKEAWAY GARAM GARAM CHAI IS READY WITH FOUR CUPS 
YUMMY HOT PIPING TEA IS READY TO SERVE 


chai pe charcha ! For a tea-licious experience. The concept and food are crafted well. With a cosy ambience, warm tea and comforting food this is one place that would even impress the non-tea lovers.  

Shall think visiting this place more to try more options with their tea.
