Kettle Tea House Review and Giveaway


Yahooooo! Its already 21-12-2012 and the Mayan Calender ends but not the World :)

Earth is fine and running just as ever, nothing has changed. Isn't that a good reason to party big!!! 

I am going to be introducing to a lot of you about a beautiful place to visit and enjoy this Doomsday, Christmas, New year or just every other day in your life :)

Kettle - is a small cozy tea house in Anna Nagar. If you are a tea lover, then this is your destination in Chennai. 

Location - No. 3362V, AE Block, 10th Main Road, Anna Nagar West, Chennai, Tamil Nadu - 600040. 

Right next to Anna Nagar post office. This lane is opposite to LKS gold house in Anna Nagar. 

Eat breakfast like a King, Lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper is a famous saying. I would heartily accept it and would say may it be delicious all times along with a cup of hot tea.

A large population of India enjoy tea everyday and as we all know, India is one of the largest grower and exporter of tea as well. In spite of these facts, we don’t have much of organized tea houses in India when compared to coffee!! Isn't that pretty surprising?! I really wish we had one.

Some good hearts heard me say that?!! And here it is all under one roof named Kettle.


Kettle claims to be an International Tea house with loads of varieties of teas and snacks that pair well with tea, knowing this background increased my expectations as I entered.
The restaurant is picked a cosy corner of a street at Anna Nagar with ample parking and pretty ambiance welcoming you.

You could be a cool freak, a decent delegate or a happy family, Kettle has a place for you all with 4 different ambiances  Tall bar chairs, outdoor table settings, posh couches and chocolate brown coffee table set up from which one can choose any according to the mood. I grabbed the outdoor table to enjoy my food along with the nature. 


First glance through the beverages menu excited me enough with around 20 varieties of teas ranging from black tea, green tea to our ever famous cutting chai. Some intriguing, unknown yet interesting names were organic HariGhatta, HariMuskar, Kala zulph, white tea and so on. Oh did I forget to mention the fruit teas and herbal teas! The list was sounding delicious with some black currant tea, apricot tea etc.  They have a wide range of ice teas as well for a chill sip.

When I had a word with the manager, I got to know that all their tea supplies are procured from belts of Assam, Darjeeling and Nilgiris. The teas depict the true taste of India.

After a brief round of inky pinky ponky, I choose apricot tea. The waiter brought the prettily dressed tea in a glass pot along with a timer. The tea needs to steep for three minutes before I can relish the taste of apricot in my tea and that’s when the artistically dramatic bell rings asking me to grab my cup. I had a refreshing sip before I received the menu card again. 


Though the tag line reads tea & desserts and I expected the same, I was surprised to see the elaborate menu with more delicious delicacies. They had a lot of choice of dishes that pair so well with teas. The starter menu had dishes from around the world, right from desi Samosa to French pastry Vol Au Vonts, Paneer canapé to Chicken Satey all cooked to perfection and ought to mention the plate presentation was an art piece by itself. Vol Au Vonts just melted in my mouth.


The starter kindled my taste buds and hunger instincts so I went to order more from the main course menu. There were choices of simple sandwiches to scrumptious pastas. I chose to have a veg club sandwich followed by creamy curried pasta. The veg sandwich that I shared with my friend had one bitter cucumber which let it down slightly but the word yummy is an understatement for the pasta.


Is that it? Nope. The menu called out loud for my notice of the loooong list of desserts and ice creams. The long list spoils you I say, I really had a great confusion as to what I can treat myself with. After reading all the tempting names out, I relished on a concoction of vanilla ice cream with the right mix of crumbled oreo cookies. The cold stone mixing fascinated me so much that I got back to age 6 and was choosing colored sprinkles, waffle cones, chocolate chips and various other toppings. Simply lip smacking.

If you think all these are complicated for your kid!! Not to worry, kids have a separate part of the menu with simple dishes like peanut butter sandwich etc that they would enjoy without complaining.

The main course portions were huge enough to make a meal by itself and the prices of all the dishes fit your pocket right.  


Apart from the general food services they also provide some unique experiences in their store. They conduct Tea brewing and Tea tasting sessions in their tea house periodically. I so happened to attend them and was astonished with the experience. They shared the secret of making perfect teas. The temperature, the quantity and time to make each different tea was well explained and the participants got to taste 6 of their teas along with snacks that pair well with the teas. It turned up to be a very informative session.

They have also started retailing their tea leaves for their customers. Those who love the different flavored teas can grab their packs of whole leaf teas right from the store to surprise people at home with amazing teas.

Kettle is also open and ready for Pot Luck parties and birthday parties. They make custom made combos for such parties too. 

Kettle – The best ever tea house that I would have ever dreamt of and it definitely meets International standards.


Kettle management was sweet enough to offer some goodies to my readers when I expressed interest to do a review of their restaurant. :) Isn't that too generous?!!! 

They have offered to give goodies to three lucky readers of my blog which will be selected by a random lucky draw.

First lucky winner - One Glass kettle + Exclusively flavored Kettle tea leaf pouch

Second and third lucky winner - Exclusively flavored Kettle tea leaf pouch
