Teapot Cafe...

Having heard a lot about the 'Teapot Cafe' and being tea-lovers, this cafe had to be on our list of to-visit places.
While exploring the streets of Fort Kochi, we came across the lovely board that read 'Teapot'. We decided we would come back later in the evening to check out their wide variety of teas served:-)
Dusk arrived and so did the rains.
We couldn't let a few droplets keep us away from that steaming cup of 'Masala Chai' could we?
So, armed with borrowed umbrellas, we waddled through knee-deep water to reach our dream destination~ Teapot Cafe!
The cafe was full of tea lovers, enjoying theirs cups/mugs/teapots of delicious hot tea, while it steadily rained outside. We were led to a mezzanine, from where we could enjoy the view of teapots in various sizes hanging on hooks.
The cafe has teapots, kettles and tea accessories collected by the owner displayed beautifully.
Framed jute bags used for packing tea leaves.
Long leaf tea, one of the many served in the cafe:-)
BTW, We had a pot of masala chai with samosas and grilled sandwiches...

Hey there, ever since I came across this post, I’ve been quite taken with this Teapot place and I can’t wait to visit. I’m from Bombay, I’ve never been to Kerala before but I hope to go there soon. ^.^
