The Tea Room from Blossom Kochhar, Hauz Khas Village

The Tea Room from Blossom Kochhar

Hauz Khas village is one of my favorite places in Delhi. Sure it’s very hipster & all round pretentious, but I love the vibe. Also, I find it astonishing how so many stores (many of them quite high end) & maybe 50 different restaurants & cafés can be crammed into such a small & untidy area.

A little over one year ago, I went to Delhi for a work trip & decided to extend it into a mini vacay by staying in my favorite borough. Visiting different cafés (& blogging about them) was one of my favorite things to do while there so I knew that I wanted to repeat the activity without repeating any of the places. But I digress, let’s get on with it…

The Tea Room by Blossom Kochhar

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m crazy about tea. When I mentioned to Bhumika that I was going to be staying at HKV, she quickly recommended the (then very new) tea room by Blossom Kochhar. HKV on the whole can be quite a maze, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the Blossom Kochhar store was maybe just 12 metres away from my airbnb.

If you’re unfamiliar with Blossom Kochhar – she’s famous for her Aroma Magic line of skin + body care products. On the ground floor of the building you’ll find her store. I swear by her under eye gel, it’s very affordable & so good. Availability of her products seems quite limited outside Delhi, so I did go a bit crazy in there & even filmed a haul video with everything I purchased.

The first floor has the spalon (spa + salon). Go one floor higher & you’ll reach the tea room.

Also worth noting – most of the buildings in HKV are older & don’t have lifts. I wouldn’t have cared at all about it, except that I sprained my ankle in the HKV parking lot & ascending or descending a staircase sent shooting pain through my foot. I loved the chilled out vibe of the café as soon as I entered.The Tea Room from Blossom Kochhar

Old style switchboards, rustic whitewashed walls, fairy lights & linen curtains – it was such a pretty sight.The Tea Room from Blossom Kochhar The Tea Room from Blossom KochharThe menu is all vegetarian with a lot of vegan options too. As it had just been open for a while, there wasn’t too much to choose from (they seem to have expanded their menu a lot since then).

Mom got a Banana & Coffee shake (the coffee was strong!) while I went with a relaxing warm cup of almond milk, infused with lavender & honey. We weren’t too hungry then so we got a quiche to go. The prices were fairly reasonable too.

All in all, though I was disappointed with the food selection, I still really liked the vibe of the place! If you’re in the area, it’s a lovely place to go get some healthy food, if you’re catching up with friends or even some alone time.

We also went to the famous Coast Café by OGAAN for dinner & were met with overpriced, mediocre food & snooty staff. Most definitely would not recommend!

I’ve previous written about two other cute places in HKV – Elma’s Bakery (which has since moved to a new location within the village itself) & Kunzum Travel Café. x

    Not a tea lover,.. But heard alot about Blossom Kocchar products,.. I will be checking some soon,..

  • Sounds dreamy. (I really hope I can visit Delhi soon! I have been thinking about it for too long. A little apprehensive to do a solo trip but could consider my options once I stabilise the cash inflow, etc.) – So I came across this brand randomly enough sometime in 2015 through some magazine or the other… Mum used to buy stuff from here, and the packaging was obvs very different then. I am a big fan of the essential oils (in general, also) so I have been buying some steadily since 2015. The other random things I tried from her brand were just about okay, but will look out for the eye gel just to see how it is.
