Cha Bar is the first of its kind
urban contemporary space that created a rage in Kolkata in year 2000, turning
tea from a dry page in history to a lifestyle drink! Ms Priti Paul’s brainchild
backed by generations of Apeejay Surrendra Group’s experience in tea plantation
business, Cha Bar was created as an integral part of more than 90 years old
iconic Oxford Bookstore in city centre Park Street. The concept was expanded
pan India integrated into Oxford Bookstores and customers loved the experience
of being able to browse at leisure, leafing through the books of their choice,
over a cup of tea from the wide selection available at the Cha Bar or simply
unwinding with friends sipping the rejuvenating beverage, iced or piping hot!
Whether one prefers a rich,
full-bodied, strong flavor, or a light fragrant taste, the Cha Bar offers a
wide and enviable choice. Cha Bar believes that there is indeed nothing quite
like a good cup of tea so every cup of blend we serve has journeyed, be it from
the dhabas in India or from across the Globe from other cultures. Today, Cha
Bar offers this experience at Oxford Bookstores across multiple stores in
Bangalore, Bhubaneswar, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi.
The stylish and relaxing ambience
of Cha Bar can make hours go by browsing through our huge collection of books
while one is spoilt for choice with an assortment of Teas blended and prepared
with precision, and after exhaustive research, with personalized and informed
service. The space dedicated to the Cha Bar adds to the experience.
A unique feature of the
environmental graphics across all Cha Bars is the Tea-Pot wall which displays
the different traditional tea-pots from across the world. This not only creates
awareness about the tradition of tea-serving across different continents but
also adds an interesting design element adding to the ambience of the space. It
also showcases how different teas in our menus are served and promotes the
dying truck art of Pakistan and the Bollywood poster art of India, for which
special artists are commissioned by, Ms Priti Paul, Director, Apeejay Surrendra
Cha Bar Menu is refreshed
regularly with additional varieties of exotic Teas and delectable snacks with
in-house experts at Apeejay Tea Group with experience of nurturing tea in our
