New tea joint ‘Namma Cafe’ opens in Mylapore

Two branches of a new tea joint called ‘Namma Cafe’ have recently opened in Mylapore.

While one is at Venkatakrishna Road, R.A.Puram near Spencer’s supermarket, the other is located at C.P. Ramaswamy Road, Alwarpet.

The Alwarpet branch is operating from a space where the tea store Chai Kanth used to be there earlier.

This store is the venture of C.K. Kumaravel, and daughter Dhamyanthi who run the popular salon chain Naturals.

The nook now offers a range of tea varieties starting from Rs 10. Ginger, sulaimani and lemon are some of the tea options available here. The store also sells filter coffee, karupatti and sukku malli coffee.

Says C.K. Kumaravel, Co-founder of Naturals,  “The speciality of Namma cafe is that proper hygiene is maintained here. Considering the current scenario, hygiene becomes very important especially at tea shops.”

“To ensure the same, we sanitise our store frequently. Our workers wear masks, and hairnet caps all the time. And tea is served in disposable paper cups.”

Snacks including veg puff, samosa, and Osmania biscuits are also sold at the store.

Namma cafe’s store at R.A.Puram has a facility to seat around 6 people. The store has also stocked vintage candies like Thengai mittai, Kamarkattu and Then mittai and savouries including murukku, thattai, and kara boondi.

A tea is priced at Rs 10.
