I’ve been wanting to check out a tea room for awhile and I’m so glad that yesterday I was able to check out Karma Kettle!
Incredibly impressed with the quality and commitment to authentic tea that this maintains along with ample flavours on offering. Located at 4 Swinhoe Street (near Tasty Corner), this place reflects a welcoming and friendly vibe to all. Wonderful atmosphere and wooden decor. They are so natural and feel so back-to-earth.The transparent-roof model offers unique and so cottage-looks-like with lots of natural light.
As a first time attendee of a real tea room, I found the vibe a delightful mix of a local coffee shop and a specialty wholesale experience. In addition to their cafe, they have a dedicated room for display of various tea which comes in different size and shape of packaging with some fascinating designer tea set and crockeries which make some one to fall in love with and pack some tea to brew at home.
It’s a little cozy so no big purses hanging on the back of your chair or people will be knocking into you for your whole visit. There are a million teas here so, depending on your taste, you’re likely taken care of. And there are a ton of tea-related knick knacks ready for you to choose your flavour or purchase during your visit. So make sure to bring a little extra bucks (or not) for cute tea-related paraphernalia for your own home.
Started its journey from Cochrane Place in Kurseong and giving the Kolkata Tea lovers a delightful tea room experience called Karma Kettle to have some Chai Pe Charcha. Around 20-25 seaters tea room is the formation of Dhiraj and Priti Sen Arora who definitely as per my assumption must have spend lots of quality time in their early days over cups of tea in various corner of the world.
The list of food & tea items for the day are as follows:
Teas that were tasted separately –
Iced teas –
Hot tea –
Paan Chai – Innovative Paan Chai is refreshing and original- the pairing of betel leaves with CTC & spices are a marriage made in Chai heaven!
We were all stuffed and happy after consuming various types of tea and High Tea platters. Such a fun time. I’ll have to see if I can make a trip back to this place very soon ! The food was delicious and the ambiance was wonderful for a nice afternoon to converse with company.
