Despite the fact that most people equate a high-end vehicle like an Audi with comfort and luxury, Mannu Sharma and Amit Kashyap used it as motivation to open their own tea shop in Mumbai.
In the opulent neighbourhood of Lokhandwala in the western suburb of Andheri, Sharma and Kashyap have been selling tea for Rs 20 from the trunk of a luxury automobile worth Rs 70 lakh for the past six months. They just went popular on social media.
Mumbai’s cutting chai is a common beverage sold at inexpensive shops known as tapris (stalls) all across the city.
We were simply out for a stroll at night and were in need of a cup of tea, but we were unable to locate a location at the moment. That’s when we considered setting up shop here, said Sharma, a native of Haryana.
The pair’s novel concept to sell ‘OD Tea,’ short for on-drive tea, from their Audi has gained widespread attention on social media, but the flavour of their offering has also attracted customers.
For the past two months, I have been going here for tea since it is so delicious. I have to have their tea every time I pass by this location,” one of the consumers stated.
