♦ Chocolate Tea. ♦
Standing meekly in front of Rabindra Sarobar Metro Station Gate 6, is a small tea shop called Tripti. It is a small, nondescript stall nestled near the footpath and one can easily look past it while crossing the place – but not anymore! You will find a small crowd lining up to buy tea from this stall at any point of the day. Why, you ask? Because this is the one of the oldest roadside stalls in Kolkata that sells chocolate tea!
Yes, you heard that right! If you haven’t heard about it before (we’re sure you must have, by now), Tripti tea stall serves chocolate tea among other chocolaty drinks and it has taken the city by rage! It's very cheap as well with the small costing 25 and 40 for the large one.
We also caught up with Bijoy Sil, the owner of the stall. He told us that he’s been selling tea for two years now but the chocolate tea for about two months. On being asked about his inspiration to make such a quirky drink, he said, “In my experience, chocolate tea is only available in high-end cafes and restaurants and I wanted to bring the concept to the middle classes, so that they don’t have to pay a lot to enjoy something like this.”
