Description: A perfect blend of fine Teas and Indian classical music in the heart of Mumbai. In a celebration of India's love affair with tea, Brooke Bond Taj Mahal, the country's most loved indigenous tea brand from Hindustan Unilever, has launched the Taj Mahal Tea House. Cocooned in a charming, old-worldly Bandra lane, The Taj Mahal Tea House is an oasis of calm. A quaint bungalow that retains its vintage look, the Taj Mahal Tea House has a meandering feel and is essentially a wind-me-down place. The language of tea is intrinsically woven into the various rooms, allowing one to browse through interesting constituents and while taking a step back in time. Every room has a different expression and the arrangements are like those in a home. Located at St. John Baptist Road Bandra, The Taj Mahal Tea House, is now open and welcoming tea connoisseurs and lovers of classical Indian music for a unique experience. The finest set of Indian teas selected by the Taj Mahal tea sommeliers, a carefully designed menu and the ambient sound of classical music, together recreate the magic and mystique of tea for every guest. Every element and intricate design at the tea house tells a tale of craftsmanship and perfectly complements the flavours of tea served here. A 'baithak' space with an acoustic design, a naturally lit patio area and a quaint corner for book reading are all under one roof at the Taj Mahal Tea House. In line with the brand's legacy of supporting classical music and musicians, it is a place that encourages the exploration of classical music as installations of Ustad Zakir Hussain's Tabla and Niladri Kumar's Sitar serve as an inspiration. The menu comprises quintessentially Indian teas put together with an interesting juxtaposition of spices and natural ingredients from all over the country. You will find a Kashmiri Saffron tea sitting comfortably with a Royal Jaipuri tea, a Malabari tea, a Parsi Mint tea and even a Bold Spices tea - all of which have been created with the help of authentic tea recipes. For the connoisseur, the tea house has the exquisite teas like the Darjeeling 2nd flush, Jasmine Pearls tea and an inimitable Smoky Mountain tea. The tea menu also has refreshing iced teas, tea lemonades, smoothies and lattes. All of these are brewed to perfection through a live 'chai bar' in the centre of the Tea House, that will instantly make you sit up and say 'Wah Taj!'. The retail section at the Taj Mahal Tea House allows for purchase of some of these specially handcrafted teas as well. Complementing the teas is an all-day tea-pairing menu that has been carefully curated by French chef Gregory Bazire. This wholesome menu includes savouries that are best enjoyed with tea such as the Parsi Brun Maska with homemade jam, the Arabic falafel chaat and a delicious breakfast menu that most Indians would love with their cup of tea in the morning. There are also warm muffins and biscuits baked at the Tea House that go perfectly with the evening chai. With evolving times and changing tastes, Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea has stayed at the forefront of innovation in the Indian tea industry. Each innovation has been aimed at bringing to customers the greatest delight when lifting a cup of Taj Mahal Tea to their lips. The Taj Mahal Tea House is one more step in creating a physical space that would make Indians fall in love with tea again. Come experience the craftsmanship and nuances of the rarest blends of tea and the soulful joy of classical music at India's first ever Taj Mahal Tea House.

I am big on tea and was taken to this place for the first time by my children.
Good ambience and good tea.
And surprisingly good and unusual snacks. Idly burgers look like small and delicious cookies
Snack platter too was excellent.

Went several times with family (2 big, 2 small) in August.

Unbelievable selection of teas as well as coffees. All food is perfect fusion, without being daft or experimental. Very much Indian food, executed in a western cooking style. The deserts are fabulous. The staff is very friendly. The prices are super value for money in Mumbai.

I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

Visited this old bungalow-turned tea house on our way back to India. Beautiful and relaxing ambience. While we entered around 8am there were hardly any table occupied by the customers, so it was very calm inside,and we felt very relaxed after the long flight which was much needed. They did serve some complimentary cookies as soon as we were seated.
Our orders included
House-made Eggs Benedict, Belgian Waffles, Green Lamb Keema Pao, Masala Toast with Basil Scented Akuri, Darjeeling 1st Flush Tea and Assam Flaming Hue Tea. All the ordered items were delicious.
They have done the interiors very tastefully, by keeping different sizes of Tea-pots here and there on display. Zakir Hussain's Tabla was also there. All in all we enjoyed our food, service and ambience of the tea-house very much. Not to be missed if you are visiting Mumbai.
