Despite multiple coffee chains having sprung up across the country, chai remains the drink that is closest to the Indian heart. We drink chai first thing in the morning, enjoy a cup of tea with colleagues at work and down yet another cup for a burst of energy in the mid afternoon. It’s surprising then, that Mumbai doesn’t have a lot of sit down eateries that are dedicated purely to the world of tea.
Enter Chaayos, a ‘tea room’ that is just that, which will be opening in Bandra this Saturday. Already 9 outlets strong in Delhi, Chaayos was started in late 2012 as a venture to bring back and explore India’s heritage of chai. Chaayos serves over 25 varieties of chai with 12 add-ons that allow customers to customize their teas in over 12,000 ways. Their entire concept and menu highlights their motto; “Experiments with Chai.”
Chai is an integral part of our history, and should remain as important in our present. Celebrate all that is chai by paying a visit to Chaayos next week!
