Tea trails at Anna Nagar East

Tea Trails

We went to Tea Trails cafe which is located at Anna Nagar East (Old No. 23, New No.93-2nd Main Road-Anna Nagar,Chennai-40. Land Mark: Behind Kandasamy College) to taste the different varieties of teas and chais available with them. Before going to the shop I had no idea that there were so many varieties of tea. When i went there I was amazed just looking at the menu.

They told us that tea and chai are different. It seems Tea should be prepared without milk and Chai, more common in India, is generally prepared with milk. But we tend to use the same word tea to refer to both. They also told us that they recommend certain foods to go along with each of their teas (food pairing) so that the tea tastes even better.

A small device is used to measure the time taken for brewing tea. Each tea comes with its own card where the name, recommended brewing time, ingredients, etc. are mentioned. This ensures that all teas are freshly brewed (by the drinkers) and hence the authentic taste and aroma are maintained. We can also take the help of Tea Trails staff to brew the teas.

This branch will shortly offer rooms/halls for meeting, conferences, party, and so on. Teas, Chais, Coffee, Snacks and Desserts from Tea Trails are delivered to your home through services like Swiggy, etc.
