Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Quenching Thirst with Tea : Bangalore Tea Trail

So yesterday we did colors and today’s theme is THIRST.

So I have this funny habit of saying “yaar coke ki pyaas lagi hai” (I am thirsty for coke) or very very often “yaar chai ki pyaas ho rahi hai” (I am thirsty for tea) and its the thirst for tea that I will satisfy today taking you through a mini Bangalore Tea Trail.

We did this tea trail long ago around September last year I think and this post has been sitting in my drafts since then, better late than never I say 🙂 So Snigdha of Tea Trunk was in bangalore when Chirag from Chaipatty suggested this walk. I am a very very very tea person and I immediately lapped up the opportunity.

We started the walk at Makkah Cafe at Johnson’s Market

Tea Trail

We tasted the khajjur, samosa and dil pasand there along with many rounds of sulemani chai. I had first encountered khajjur a little while ago during my Waynad trip when the shop keeper sold it calling a fried cake and it left me very very curious. Though there was a clear difference between the taste here and taste of that, I enjoyed my conversation with the shop keeper on how it is made.

And this is the perfect Sulemani, the best in the trail that day according to me


From Makkah we moved to Shivaji Nagar and the famous Savera Tea Stall and this is what I found right outside Russell Market and if we are talking of tea how can we miss Rusk


We started at Savera with Bombay Special Chai, it was a decent chai however none of us could understand that why Bombay Special

Tea Trail2What had me fascinated at Savera was the blue wall and the man pouring tea from so much height and the lovely kettle kept on the fire

From Savera me moved on to the hep Infintea for a tea tasting, personally I loved would have loved the tea trail to be focused only on not so upmarket joints but who was complaining. I do like Infintea a lot

Tea Trail4

We did some 2-3 types of tea tastings there and they were all well executed in typical manner of Infinitea. All in all a great morning

So is your tea thirst quenched?

    Although I am not a regular tea drinker, the need-a-cup-every-morning types but the post was very appealing. Would love to try out the places for experience sake 🙂

    Loved the chai trail Monika! All of you seem to be raving about Infinitea. Is this the one on Cunningham road?
