If one of Bandra's cute little aunties invited us over for tea, we'd imagine a large spread straight out of an Enid Blyton book, complete with scones, pretty little finger sandwiches, and petits fours. And that's exactly what Taj Mahal Tea House, Hindustan Unilever's first flagship tea store, has turned out to be. In a departure from other generic joints in the city, this cafe is housed in an old bungalow with enamelled teapots, a library, and beverage options that range from milky masala chais to lemonades. If you're looking to munch, choose from breakfast options like waffles and eggs and meals like Kerala-peppered chicken breast. Is it tea time yet?
