And rains are here, what is more exciting than your favorite cup of steaming hot chai with little knick knacks? Delhi boasts of amazing places where you can enjoy the evergreen chai, but let’s chalk out our favorites!
Located in the Oxford bookstore in Connaught Place, this place boasts of a large variety of teas. Not a very large place in terms of seating, but the precise menu and cheap prices make up for everything! Choose from a range of single estate Assam teas, Darjeeling teas, Nilgiri and too many more, or stick to the basic masala chai. They also do impressive decaf and diet teas, and if you want to cool down in that heat, try the iced teas! What is more, the very basic menu has the perfect snacks like sandwiches, wraps and samosas that go down well with that cup.
