It's Tea Time @ Societea


As my cousin n I were walking and surfing the shops in that 100ft Road looking for Chai Patty, we saw an old rusty board carrying the name Socie-Tea. The name itself caught our attention. Do I have to say it is a tea shop? We immediately made up our minds to visit there soon.

We landed in the Socie-Tea after our power yoga session the very next day. Both were hoping this would be a better place compared to the previous day experience.


As we entered, we found it’s a small decent Tea Kadai (shop) with some tiny tiny images painted all over the wall. There is this one wall painted in black and they have written their menus with chalk. We found the wall art and the accessories of this chai shop carries its own DigniTea, IntegriTea and SpecialiTea. And so as we saw one of the quotes in the frames, we too wished one cup of tea will restore our NormaliTea.




It was altogether a nice interior, trying to make a difference. One thing that caught my eye was the newspaper stand that was made of bamboo ladder. Interesting piece of accessory to the room it was.

We surfed through the menu and ordered Socie-Tea and Samosa Chat for the snack. Yeah after yoga session eating samosa.. hehe.. couldn't help it. as we were bit hungry for snacks :D We placed our orders and sat in our table. There were also bamboo stools n mats as a settee to sit n relax. It is a great place to hangout with friends for a cup of Chai.

As we sat down, they served us the masala peanut in a small bowl as the complementary starter. While we were eating it, in less than 15 minutes, they served us our orders. The chat samosa and the tea. Usually it seemed for the other teas they serve the sugar separately  without mixing it but Socie-Tea is a cardamom flavored ginger tea perfectly brewed. It was served in a terracotta cup. Warm and freshly brewed Chai with tasty aroma.




We were very impressed and had visited couple of times after that day. And ordered the same societea. For a great cuppa chai in an affordable price having friendly atmosphere with nice people to attend, this is the place for you to remember.

Socie-Tea.... Tas-tea... J

  19. That was interesting, the pics of the chatts as well. Reminds me of drinking tea off the earthen cups in the north east. They tasted better than ever.
    Guess this will be a concept chai kadi soon all over
