Chai, Maggi and Mountains: 7 Kickass Tea-Stalls in India

India may be a land of a thousand cuisines, but we unite effortlessly over Maggi and chai. From the barren highlands of Ladakh to the remotest stretches of the Western Ghats; several sweaty, heaving, exhausting treks in India often consummate over a steaming bowl of Maggi in a little tea-stall, in the middle of nowhere.

Cozy, reliable and serendipitous, tea-stalls in INDIA appear just when you need them.  Here’s Tripoto’s list of the some of most satisfying places to enjoy a cup of chai and Maggi.
