A tea garden in central Mumbai is a favourite spot for the locals.
Its located in an upscale area, close to a shopping mall, and serves as a popular gathering place for the neighbourhood tea drinkers.
But when the area is full of people, people leave the tea gardens to go to cafes.
This is not unusual in Mumbai.
“The city is full, there is hardly a place where we don’t have people walking around the tea rooms,” said the tea lover.
In the tea room, people drink tea and sip on water and some of them have brought a large bowl of tea with them.
A small but passionate tea lover who declined to be named said that many tea lovers like the garden as a place to relax and meet new people.
But it also helps them relax.
“They are not busy people and they don’t drink tea.
They are people who enjoy tea and are looking for it.
So it is a very popular place,” he said.
“I think the area of the tea houses is not the problem.
It is the people who come here that are the problem.”
A techie’s guide to the tea in Mumbai: ‘If you want to enjoy a cup of tea, come here’ A tea lover told The Hindu that there is a shortage of tea in the tea house.
He pointed out that the area around the teahouse is full.
“We have not got any tea.
There is not enough tea.
The supply is very limited.
If you want a cup, you can’t come here,” he added.
“If you think about the tea, it is very strong.
It has more than 30 percent of the quality of the finest tea that can be produced in India,” said a tea lover, who declined be named.
“You are drinking a lot of tea and you are not getting a cup.
But what if you wanted to have a cup?
You could go and sit at the garden or go to the shop to buy tea.
But the shops are closed and people don’t go to them.
They would just buy tea in a corner,” he explained.
“Nowadays, you don’t even go to a tea shop in Mumbai,” the tea enthusiast added.
He added that there was also a shortage in the area where the tea is sold.
“There is only a little space in the garden for tea and there is nothing available.
So we have to go out and find another place to drink tea,” he pointed out.
The tea lover said that the problem was that there were no places to sit and have a chat.
The owner of the garden is very vocal about his need for tea.
“In a few months, I will have tea and coffee and I will bring it here,” said Bishnu Pankaja, the owner of The Tea Garden.
The techie added that he had a few problems when he visited the tea shop.
“When I go to buy a cup for a cup in the morning, the customer asks for it at the same time.
We have been having problems for the last few years,” he told The Financial Post.
He said that he did not feel comfortable at all.
“Every time I go out, I feel like I am being watched by people.
People are always trying to find my place and look for tea,” the techie said.
The landlord, who did not want to be identified, said that people are getting in trouble and it was affecting his business.
“People are not coming in here to buy their tea.
We had to close our shop because of this problem,” he admitted.
But he said that they had not done anything wrong.
“It is not just us who is getting in a pinch.
Everyone is feeling the pinch,” he lamented.
A tea enthusiast and the owner are not alone in their concern.
There are many people who are also suffering from the shortage of teas.
“No one wants to buy teas anymore.
But we do it for tea because we love tea and we love people.
I want to get a cup but the garden cannot provide it,” said one of the owners of the Tea Garden, who also declined to disclose his name.
He was talking about the garden that houses about 200 tea lovers, including many tea drinkers from the area.
“This is the best tea garden.
People come here for tea in small amounts.
We do not need to buy more tea,” said another tea lover from the Tea Gardens, who would only give his first name.
“My family is not really a tea drinking family.
But people come here to get tea and drink tea with others.
I don’t mind it,” he noted.
A teacher in Mumbai’s Mumbai tea village said that there had been a shortage recently and that they were trying to increase the supply.
“Many people have complained about the shortage and now we are trying to fill it up.
We are trying out new techniques to increase supply,” said Sanjay Pandey, the tea teacher in the village.
