Nope, this tea isn’t from a fancy, and high-end restaurant. A local tea stall in Mukundapur, Kolkata is selling this expensive tea worth Rs.1000.
If you are a tea-positive person, then we’ve got something tea-riffic for you today. A small tea joint in Kolkata is serving a cup of tea worth Rs.1000, and it’s the most expensive tea in India!
One thing that makes it this costly is the tea leaves that are used in the preparation. The Bo-Lay Tea leaves are usually sold at Rs.3 Lakhs per Kg, and that’s why this tea is an expensive affair and is more like an adventure. Pu-erh tea, dark tea, or Boley tea, is a semi-rare type of tea that is made in Yunnan, China.
This tea joint serves more than 100 types of teas, including Silver Needle White Tea, Lavender Tea, Hibiscus Tea, Wine Tea, Tulsi Ginger Tea, Blue Tisane Tea, Teesta Valley Tea, Makaibari Tea, Roobios Tea, and Okayti Tea.
The owner of the tea stall Mr.Partha Pratim Ganguly, who planned on doing a full-time job earlier, left his job to come up with his own business. He decided to give a little twist to the regular teas, and in the year 2014, he started his own tea stall ‘Nirjash’.
This open-air tea joint has an umbrella as its roof, a few plastic chairs, and a variety of teas to complete the ambience. This place is mostly crowded with doctors, as it is located right opposite the Medica Hospital. Brush up your knowledge, and learn the health benefits of each tea from Mr.Partha Pratim himself. Apart from making fab teas, he is also well aware of each tea variant.
A sip of this kadak chai would be pure bliss. It will soothe your taste buds, as it’s an effective drink if you are suffering from cold or bad throat!
