Wake up and smell the coffee – it’s organic!
If there’s one gourmet coffee pub in India where you are sure to get organic, single-estate coffee, it’s Moca Café in Madras.
Kalmane – the new kid on the block
Tucked away in a corner, this coffee retail point at Bangalore’s hip and happening Forum mall could easily be missed by the throngs that daily visit the food court and the 11-screen multiplex.
Green Shop, Coonoor
If you go down Coonoor way, make sure you stop over at the Green Shop.
Flury’s, the legendary Calcutta tearoom gets a new life
Flury’s 18 Park Street. Kolkata landmark, on the corner with Middleton Row. A legendary teashop now well past its sell-by-date with rumours of its impending conversion to a McDonalds’s. Still good for cakes, patties and Swiss pastries – try the rum balls.
A stopover at Dolly’s Tea Shop in Calcutta is a must
Long before the advent of tea lounges in India, a small tea outlet in a busy south Calcutta shopping complex blazed a new trail. It was perhaps the first shop where connoisseurs of tea - and there are plenty in Eastern India - could sample, sip and buy their favourite single origins and blends.
