India is the largest tea drinking country in the world. Wherever we are, whatever be the time we are always rejuvenated with a cup of tea. Unlike any other beverage, tea has a wide variety to offer to its connoisseurs. Whether you are busy or bored, in haste or relaxing, with friends or alone a cuppa tea is all that makes it right in every way. Tea happens to be one of the largest stress busters for a lot of us.
In the past few years, coffee cafes have emerged as a favourite hangout place for students, housewives, executives or work-from-home professionals, however a vast number of health conscious people are now swiftly moving over to healthier options such as tea. The emergence of multiple tea cafes and lounges is a witness to the shifting trend. In the over-saturated coffee market, tea is quite a refreshing change.
While the fog overtakes the Gurgaon sky and the temperatures dip to unimaginable levels, these tea shops in Gurgaon that would come to rescue. So step into one of these places for your special ‘chai ki chuski’.
A modest tea place where you can find a quick bit and simple/flavored tea to satiate you. A very simple offering with 6 kinds of chai and 9 snack items to go by, but the flavor talks loud. Pair your ginger chai with a vada pav and you are in tea heaven. Do not under estimate this place for its humility. It extends great personalized services and possibly that’s a reason why it has been able to sustain its customers at three different places within Gurgaon.

On the Golf Course Road, there is this humble little cafe that serves basic snacks and beverages. On the outside it looks like a tiny place but it has ample seating and also seats the customers outdoors. The ambiance is apt for a lazy Sunday or a weekend binge trip. The cafe has books placed in a corner to engage the customers. The Masala chai is a hit here along with Chilli Cheese Toast. Only if the service could be a bit quick. But the food is great and the chai worth your trip. Try it!

Roots-Café in the park
This chilly weather becomes all the more special and romantic if spent outdoors. The location of Roots is such where a warm cup of tea makes the weather enjoyable involuntarily. Even though this is not particularly a tea café yet the chai here is worth your penny. The all-day breakfast is an added bonus, of course. Whether it is masala chai or green tea with mint or lemon, relish it with one of their special snacks like Moong Dal Chilla or Bombay Egg Bhurji with Toast or better still Bun Omlette.
Most of all, it is the experience which makes sipping tea outdoors that makes it even more special.

It is a good time, now, to grab hold of a friend and head to the nearest place to sip that golden cup of tea while catching up. Or maybe skim through the fog and cozily huddle up in a tea café with a book. Or better still chill out with a group of pals and share a plate of maggi along with a masala chai. Whatever be the question, Gurgaon’s answer is “tea”.
