Chai and much more....-Chaayos

India is the largest producer and consumer of black tea in the world today, with approximately 90% of households drinking this only beverage? But for all this love of tea, it wasn't until Chaayos that tea cafes became a name to relate to a good tasty chai. Chaayos is basically a  creation of IIT alumnus Nitin Saluja and Raghav Verma. The started it in the year 2012, with the aim to capitalize on India's small yet growing business of chai cafes.

Although I was familiar with the name “Chaayos”, but when a week ago a blogger friend of mine invited me to table tasting session on Sunday afternoon at Chaayos, Garden Galleria Mall outlet, like a kid I didn’t let the offer pass. So on a Sunday afternoon, I went ahead for my table tasting session of Winter Special on Chaayos. I was introduced to Divya- the brand manager for Chaayos and thereafter started amazing experience of tasting difference dished from their winter special menu. I stuck to regular Kulhhad Chai with less water, adrak, Tulsi. Took some time for it to be made, but was too good. The Shahi chai, black tea which is called a God’ Creation because it is a mix of all natural herbs and all were quite good, everything was indeed good. What makes them truly stand apart from competitors such as Nukkadwala, Chai Point, and others is hygiene, variety, and ambience, chipping away at the ascendance that coffee chains like Cafe Coffee Day have enjoyed time and again.
