The Chai Walah
The Chai Walah is a small tea stall located near Alappuzha Beach. It emanates an irresistible aroma of freshly brewed tea leaves, cardamom, ginger, and secret spices. The stall only opens in the evenings.
This pop-up beverage cart near Alappuzha lighthouse serves 50 varieties of freshly brewed, natural, artisanal tea. You can choose from Cardamom tea, ginger tea or even a soothing herbal brew. The traditional Masala Chai is my personal favourite. To compliment your chai, The Chai Wallah also serves traditional snacks like samosa or pakoras.
This place is not only for buying tea, but also a lively social hub for friends, travellers from all over the world, and universal chai enthusiasts.
