So, the Illuminati is taking over the world and reptilians are real. Also, life would be so much easier even if the tea wasn’t invented. Who are we kidding? Both of the statements are horrible lies. Chai corners have been an integral part of our lives throughout our college or basically any phase of life. The stalls outside the posh colleges of North Campus have been the hub for the swarm of students who need a place to crash and chit-chat about their lives, classes, exams and everything that can be talked about. What better way to gossip and chat than over a cup of piping hot chai along with a bunch of friends? We found out 5 hotspots for the tea lovers in the area. They’re not lavish and are far from classy but have all the vibe of a street life that one can ask for. Read on as we tell you about them all!
1. Chandan Tea Stall
Chandan Tea Stall has managed to grow from a mere tea stall to a small food corner that offers some scrumptious items of food along with the good old tea. We had their Manchurian And Fried Rice Combo and boy, was it finger licking! The spicy Manchurian balls were soft and almost dissolved inside our mouths along with flavourful and chewy rice. The food standards of this humble eatery rivalled those of a good restaurant. The chai was strong for it was infused with the flavour of ginger which provided a fantastic kick to our taste buds. Do stop by with your friends and have a great time!

Yet, it has managed to attract a fairly decent amount of crowd with the quality of tea it has to offer. The stall is a small umbrella shed on the side of the road but can be spotted by the plethora of people that surround it from distance. Their ginger and cardamom infused tea was one of the best cups we’ve had in a while!
