Tell A Tale Over Tea


CON­VER­SA­TIONS over cof­fee is so passé. It’s time for tea to take over! Renowned tea som­me­lier and founder of the brand Rad­hikas Fine Teas & What­nots, Radhika Ba­tra Shah, re­cently con­ducted In­dia’s first ever Live Tea Cer­e­mony at Yau­atcha, Mum­bai. An im­pres­sive list of dis­tin­guished guests were privy to an in­ti­mate ses­sion of in­tro­duc­tion to the finer nu­ances of tea by Radhika. From renowned di­rec­tor-writer Ritesh Ba­tra to ac­tor Shakti Khu­rana, from marathon run­ner Girish Mallya to food blog­ger Bhavin Shah, Radhika took every­one on a beau­ti­ful tea-ride— rom the gar­dens to the teacup. She de­scribed each tea leaf, be it white, green, oo­long or black teas, its pluck­ing, the process in­volved and the ben­e­fits through sam­pling of each. What caught our at­ten­tion was that each leaf was com­ple­mented with the per­fect kind of food item—like dim sums, sticky rice and turnip cakes. Radhika also in­formed the tea-lovers on brew­ing and ways to in­fuse tea into recipes and also tea-tips for face, eyes and skin­care! Radhika has taken her tea passion to a new level with her newly launched e-com­merce web­site rad­hikas­ where one can get the finest teas de­liv­ered straight to their doorstep. It also has a unique fea­ture of a Tea Finder that helps in find­ing the per­fect leaf as per one’s mood and food pref­er­ences from a wide range of more than 50 teas from In­dia, China, Greece, Sri Lanka and Tur­key. Smells tea-li­cious!!
