Recently I was out with blogger friends for #TeaTrails experience by Le Meridien and we hit this 70+ years old tea shop in Old Delhi. This shop is located in Chandni Chowk, on the main road which is just opposite to Red Fort. Still this shop is serving hundreds of tea lovers in Delhi. This Photo Journey shares more about the tea they serve and folks behind this.
When we talk about favorite food options in Delhi, Old delhi comes to the mind and I am sure that you must have heard about Paranthe wali gali, Nataraj ke Bhalle, desi ghi vali jalebi etc. But if you are in Chandni Chowk, also make a point to visit Kailash Chandra Jain tea shop.
This family in into tea business for more than 70 years now. Apart from tea, they also sell rabri. This shop is also popular for 'Chalu chai', which is essentially a masala tea.
This tea is offered in kulhad for 20 rs. Milky with the flavor of cardamom and topped with almonds & saffron. And they serve fresh made mathi with chai. Tea with almonds doesn't really sound interesting, but when you sip it you are love it. So whenever around Old Delhi, move to Jain tea shop for a kulhad of tea.
