TETLEY TEA: A CRITIQUE

AVERAGE FOOD BLOG

Tetley

Someone had to put down the words that are to follow. I am just sad that it had to be a Yorkshireman.

Let’s spell it out: Green, ‘Super Green’ whatever the fuck that is (in four different fruity aromas), the ‘Blend Collection’ (including a treacherous ‘Blend of Both’ using both Original and Green teas), Redbush, Earl Grey, Peppermint, Camomile. Is that better, Tetley? I do not think so.

Restaurant Review: Market Cafe, GK 2, Delhi – 3.5/5 Stars

Shivangi Reviews

To enliven the #followthefoodie experience with Team Shivangi Reviews, we visited Market Café in GK 2. With separate smoking and non-smoking seating, the manager reserved a table in both the areas, not knowing which area we will prefer, just goes to say the level of service being provided. The exclusive Gourmet It Up menu contains selected dishes from the restaurant and some of the chef’s favourite.

Staff & Ambience
