    Pamper your father with more than cakes and off-the-rack ties 

    FATHER’S Day brings up some especially fond memories. Whether it is the time your dad taught you to ride a bike, swing a  golf club or walked you down the aisle, you really owe him something. So take a leaf out of David and Harper Beckham’s daddy-baby book and pamper the main man in your life.

    Sipping it right
    Book a spot at the tea trail if your dad is a tea connoisseur. Bond over different tea varieties from the world over. If your father prefers Indian brews then there is the Assam or Darjeeling tea on offer. For something more exotic, try the traditional Chinese Oolong leaf tea which comes in little beads and then magically unfurls, releasing a satisfying complex flavours. For those with a penchant for herbal infusions, we suggest you try the natural rosehip with hibiscus, sencha with peppermint and cinnamon, and pure chamomile. For something cooler, you could sip on some iced tea. Rs. 255 upwards. At Sheraton Bangalore Hotel, Brigade Gateway, Malleswaram. Details: 42521000
