India is a tea-addicted nation. No wonder, throughout the day, the tea never stops brewing in the busy financial capital of the country. Over the years, tradition and innovation have come together to create an exciting variety of teas in the area.
In the SoBo Chai Walk, we take you to different chai places around South Mumbai, to taste these interesting varieties of teas. Sip on the various avatars of chai like cutting chai, masala chai, Irani chai and Sulaimani chai as we walk in the bazaar area of South Mumbai. We explain the different types of teas, interspersed with some history of the area. We will be visiting a chai house, a tea center, an Irani café and a famous bakery.
Once you have tasted the common man’s tea, it is now time to sip on some serious gourmet teas from the tea gardens of India. We will head over to a gourmet tea shop where we will taste these indigenous teas and learn the differences between a Green, White and Black tea. You can purchase from a wide variety of teas and even some lovely crockery if you are interested.
