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