Chamraj Tea – Ooty

Standard

Again one another post from our last week trip, whenever we are to ooty we never miss to purchase Chamraj Tea at their stall. Tea is one of the most important things in my home; my home is not at all a home without tea. Daily I use to prepare tea at least 6 to 7 times for my loved ones. Now recently we get tea from our friend who owns an estate. However, once we are to ooty, we go ahead and buy Chamraj Tea, because of its variety. Wow, really I wonder when I saw these huge varieties of tea for the first time.

We started one morning to this Chamraj Tea shop, whenever we go there, we use to have a tea in their stall and purchase few varieties of tea. Having tea in that location around tea plantations, nothing equals that atmosphere. This time it has been a big list –

  • Green Tea
  • Black Tea
  • Masala Tea
  • Chocolate Tea
  • Raspberry Tea
  • Peach Tea
  • Strawberry Tea
  • Black Currant Tea
  • White Tea
  • Organic Tea
  • Frost Tea
  • Nilgiri Leaf Tea
