    From robust
    South African to
    gentle Chinese and aromatic Russian leaves, we bring you a list of cafes for the adventurous tea drinker to explore

    Socie-Tea
    Socie-Tea in Indiranagar is a street  food cafe, tea room, shopping center and art center all rolled into one. Choose from unusual blends like
    pineapple, chocolate and rum teas, apart from classic favourites such as lemongrass, silver tips, Earl Grey and Kashmiri qahwah. At 13th Main. `70 upwards. Details: 41102018

    Mr Beans
    Home Cafe Set in a quaint house on a tree-lined  road, this one is a little off the radar of tea enthusiasts but stocks some impressive blends. Their range of gourmet teas comprise the usual suspects like lime and lemon tea and the classic Earl Grey but we suggest you opt for their blood orange brew, a calming and refreshing drink, or the Tea Rose packed with floral notes. `55 upwards. At 3rd Block, Koramangala. Details: 49653320

    My Tea Housechamomile tea
    Offering about 300 varieties of tea  from all over the world is My Tea House.  From Russian to Thai, and Sri Lankan to Nepali, Malaysian, Arabic and African,  sample the different flavours from across  the globe. India too is well represented in a special section dedicated to traditional brews, which includes preparations of Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal, Uttaranchal, Orissa, and Kerala. If you fancy an elaborate tea ceremony, book their Chinese tea ceremony for four for `500. `40 upwards. At 5th Block, Koramangala. Details: 65975430

    Smoke House Deli
    The deli offers a fine selection  spanning everything from the regular camomile to brews like Yerba Mate — an Argentinian green tea with a smooth texture and slight kick of  bitterness. We recommend the Holy Detox, a blend of tulsi, spearmint, rosehips, lemon myrtle and linden blossoms, and the Herbal Energiser — an infusion of peppermint leaves,  licorice, ginseng, hibiscus, lemongrass and passion fruit. `120 upwards. At Lavelle Road. Details: 49653255

    Chaaye Stall
    A cafe offering the typical fare of makeshift roadside chaaye (tea) shops like pakodas and kachoris, this one is the best place for authentic South Indian teas. On their menu, you will find favourites like  cardamom, ginger and spiced options. But for something a bit more adventurous, opt for the Karupatti Chaaye — tea sweetened with palm sugar (rather than refined), which lends a hint of caramel to the drink. `55 upwards. At Commissariat Road.  Details: 8095196957

    Coffee  on Canvas
    A charming roof-top cafe that blends  art with great brews, this one boasts a line-up of teas like Sencha green, jasmine,  cranberry, strawberry, orange pekoe, Ruhuna and Dimbula. The drawing feature however is their Kullad Chai, a special Indian milk tea served in a clay pot either plain or flavoured with ginger or cardamom.
    `39 upwards. At 4th block, Koramangala. Details: 9900044248
