Chai Kings promises clean, hygienic outlets for tea and snacks, and they even home-deliver hot, fresh tea.

What Makes It Awesome

What best to do on a gloomy evening than sip some hot, milky, strong chai to the soundtrack of pattering raindrops? Chai Kings is coffee-crazy Chennai’s answer to affordable tea-shop chains in the city and caters perfectly to your every craving for that versatile comfort beverage. 
With outlets in Kilpauk, Anna Nagar, T Nagar, Thousand Lights, and Perungudi, this recently proliferated tea-shops spaces are non-fussy, functional, clean and promise varieties of delicious tea for every kind of tea lover in three sizes – regular at INR 20, medium at INR 30 and large at INR 40. 
Walk into these outlets (perfect to stop at when you’re passing by, but parking is quite a hassle), and you are greeted by the heady aroma of ginger, elaichi, and milk on the boil. Choose from strong black Sulaimani chai, the all-time favourite masala chai, some citrusy hot lemon tea or milky ginger tea, all served in cutting-chai glasses that {in this tea-obsessed person’s opinion} elevate the experience ten-fold! Sugarless tea is on the menu too. 
If you’d rather have something healthier, the classic green tea, the exotic hibiscus tea and the refreshing, mildly pungent tulsi tea are some great choices. Apple, lemon and ginger-lemon iced teas are fitting choices for hot afternoons when chilled, sweet drinks are yearned for and cost INR 50. 
They also have milkshakes, the evergreen chocolate, mango and strawberry flavours are on offer too. And what glass of chai feels complete unless accompanied by a hot snack? Nibble on samosas, veg puffs, brownies, podi idli, and even Maggi, and make your tea experience a wholesome one.


The most exciting bit? Chai Kings delivers! So if you’re stuck at work and desperately in need of something hot, make a call and expect a sleek cardboard flask with steaming, fresh tea to be at your doorstep in no time.
