This cute little cafe in the commercial hub of Lower Parel is anything but boring. The vibrant walls are full of quotes and art, table-tops have four different hand-painted board games, so you can play while you wait for a hot tea. You’ll find Hajmola, Lemongrass and other flavours in the hot and cold tea areas of the menu.

An old Parsi bungalow converted into a tea cafe makes The Taj Mahal Tea House a popular nook in Bandra. The space has ample corners to curl up in and read, while its blue, cream and yellow tones transport you to a different era. Owned by Hindustan Unilever, you are guaranteed tea of the Taj brand and you can sample flavours like Curry Patta Tea, Oolong Tea, Mint Tea, along with breakfast and tea-time snacks.
