India Today - - COVER STORY -

Owned by Dolly Roy, the first woman tea taster and tea auc­tion­eer in In­dia, this tea bou­tique ex­isted much be­fore the cafe and hang­out cul­ture. In 1987, there weren’t many

places where one could en­joy a nicely brewed cuppa. With a cover of barely ten, there isn’t much room or time to linger as Dak­shi­na­pan, the shop­ping des­ti­na­tion it’s housed in, is al­ways buzzing. With­out the com­mand­ing pres­ence of Dolly her­self, the buzz has changed a lit­tle but the teas re­main as re­fresh­ing and as pocket friendly as ever. If you don’t know your first flush Dar­jeel­ing from your As­sam ortho­dox, wait your turn to speak to one of the older mem­bers of the staff and ask for a sug­ges­tion. You might just learn a lot about teas af­ter a visit here.
