‘Tea’pping point

With its gourmet offerings, Teabox has moved the modest chai much beyond mass produced and machine tea

It is easy to feel like a kid in a candy store when one visits the Teabox outlet at Mumbai airport. Prominently located inside Terminal 2, the 250 square feet oval-shaped store is as well thought out as the tea and the tea accessories it retails. Inside the plush store, exotic Silver Needle White Tea shares space with the humble Bombay Cutting chai, as the pure green and black teas sit cosily with blended delights such as Rum and Raisin and Himalayan Wine. There is also the Kashmiri Kahwa and the Oolong Tea, which can be sampled by anyone interested in the classics. An eclectic mix of tea warmers, kettles, infusers and tea sets are also on display, luring the connoisseur and the experimentalist equally.
