A good cup of tea is always looked forward to!! This may be the case in the mornings or in the evenings. Tea Cafe, First Flush, owned by Subhasish Mitra and Tapasi Banerjee recently was inaugurated in the august presence of dignitaries like Riddhi Bandopadhyay, Sidhu, Rohan, Devjit Bandopadhyay and others.
“The idea struck me when I was a student. I used to visit the Jadavpur Coffee House where I used to have great adda sessions with my friends over cups of tea. The heat of the place used to take a toll on us especially during the summers. Hence i had the intention of opening a tea cafe where different kinds of tea can be tasted in a cool environment. One will also be able to have great adda sessions too. Coffee is also available along with some snacks to go with the tea or coffee” said Subhasish Mitra.
Bathed in Brick red and white like the ones in the 60s’ French films, the cafe is a fantastic consortium of different art forms like cooking, brewing, painting and literature. A small library is tucked in the corner with a range of books for every reader. The collection will be updated periodically, so you can always find a new book or two. Moreover, the library is set to witness quite a few book launches in the future since the cafe welcomes publishers and authors who are looking for an alternative place for their event.
The cafe also houses a beautiful boutique right at the entrance. Handmade jewellery and block-printed scarves make it a must visit for every fashionista in the city.
First Flush is located near Golpark, Aminia in a small alley to your left.
