Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea House in Bandra summer menu is refreshing

I am not a Bandra girl but whenever I walk through its tiny lanes, it surprises me with something new. This time I happen to visit a tea house. Bengalis and tea houses have an eternal romance. We love our tea. (These days I love my Americano too). I visited Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea House on a late afternoon thinking that the menu won’t have much to offer. To my surprise, it was brimming with healthy options. Cocooned in a charming, old-worldly Bandra lane, the Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea House is based out of a quaint bungalow that retains its vintage look. Each room has a dedicated theme and an old worldly charm. This place is in a small lane ahead of Lilavati hospital, diagonally opposite to bungalow 9. Very simple yet stylish decor. Pretty Moroccan blue and white decor, and an extremely courteous staff well versed with the elaborate tea menu they serve make this place stand out from the crowd. I tried the Gulukand Paan Chai and was blown over by its refreshing flavour.

I would come directly to the food that I tried that day.

All the people looking at options to beat the summer heat can try Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea House. Their summer menu includes tropical refreshing ingredients such as mango, pudina, khus and nimbu! I am planning to try their Earlgrey Lassi on my next visit. The most unusual and un-classical version of a lassi, with bergamote notes. Sounds interesting!
