5 Tea Joints in Mumbai to Enjoy a Hot Cuppa This Monsoon
Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world, with numerous fusions being introduced in every country. One of the best teas you’ll have is the Mumbai “cutting chai.” As we all know, monsoon hits this city quite hard every year. And a classic combination in the city is “baarish and chai,” sitting in your verandah with the rain pouring and a cup of hot tea and your favourite book in hand. This is one of the most blissful experiences you’ll have, giving you a mental and physical break. Having a cup of “kadak cutting chai” in the Mumbai monsoons is a must-have experience.
So, this year, instead of a quick getaway by taking a Delhi to Ahmedabad flight, why not switch things up to visit Mumbai and experience this bliss for yourself? And while you are there, here are the top 5 tea spots you must visit.
1. Chai Pe Charcha, Lower Parel
This place offers you a cool and casual hangout spot with a variety of different teas in every flavour. All you need to do is ask! Chai pe Charcha also offers light snacks like parathas or sandwiches with your tea. In case you feel you will get bored, you can always play board games and paint on their tables, while sipping your hot and comforting cuppa. Definitely worth taking a Kochi to Mumbai flight, right?
2. Chai Pyali, Andheri West
This place is not only known for its tea but its quick bites have also taken a large space in people’s hearts. Chai Pyali is a simple, petite and beautiful café, and while it may be small in size, visitors don’t see a problem with the space. Their menu is also very pocket-friendly and still gives you the feel of having a typical “Mumbaikar” cuppa. Instead of taking your classic Delhi to Ranchi flight, why not reroute and go to Mumbai this year?
3. Cha Bar, Churchgate
Just hearing the word “cha” comforts you and puts everything at ease. Located in a bookstore, this place is very cozy and gives you very home-like vibes. The choices at this store are almost everything you can imagine. Though their in-house blend is worth a try, they offer a wide range of teas, which makes the selection process for you tough.
4. Chaayos, Juhu
The concept of “chai” and “adda” is brought back home with this chain. It helps you define the true meaning of chatting and relaxing with friends with their wide range of teas. You must order the “kulhad chai,” which is basically tea served in earthenware glasses. It gives the Mumbai cuppa a whole new definition.
5. Sea Lounge, Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai
A great view with awesome chai! Afternoon tea never feels more satisfying than what you drink here with the picturesque view before you. Whether you are with friends or alone, this place gives you one of the most homely feels, with a hint of royalty. With their wide range of teas, along with items to snack on, this place provides you with the utmost comforting experience there is.
To experience this world of teas, why not take a Kochi to Mumbai flight this monsoon and step into an experience that should not be missed by anyone.
